So blag posts have been thin on the ground lately but like buses(anyone remember them) there are none for ages the 2 come along at once.
The photos are of my latest rather small unit for "Shinyloo" my retro Napoleonic mostly 30mm collection. These aged chaps are from Barry Minot who made a good bundle of assorted 30mm Historicals in the 70s and 80s. These days some are a bit thin on the ground - which is why this unit is only a dozen strong. I have a couple more of the figures but they need some TLC and repair before I start painting them.

I do now have quite a bundle of Minot Napoleonics. Some splendid French Cuirassiers and a fair number of British Infantry and French Imperial Guard but of course most of them need painting. Earlier "Shinyloo" posts show those I have actually finished - both Minot and other makes.

The "Shinyloo " collection is now in sight of 400 individual models- not quite there yet but I can see it from here. Still plenty to paint though.
