These are toys from Eureka miniatures which I painted up for friends and family. You wills see that some of them are post Napoleonic war.

These are Front Rank figures. There is a lot of variety in their range, which makes for interesting units.

Two little boys had two little armies. Each had a rocking horse cavalry, musketeers, grenadiers, and a rocking horse General. I did these for my nephews.

I used Front Rank figures to represent these two light infantry regiments. You can see how I paint quite clearly on the yellow colpack bags of the skirmishers in the third photo. I use a "feathering" technique to build up highlights where I want them. I paint more of these thin strokes where I want the HL "higher."
