I was able to finish painting the 4th Swiss and base them on Christmas night. I am very pleased with the result; but then again, I'm an unabashed fan boy for Perry Miniatures.
After painting and adding the packs to the the figures, I think that the packs without bedrolls may be for the figures in overcoats. Oh well, the figures will stay and fight in "climate controlled" battlefields so I don't think they will be too uncomfortable.
Whoops! Just noticed some blue paint on the white turnback I'll need to paint over.
I still need to print off a flag, add a label to the base (forgot to put that on first before gluing the figures!) and then add some flocking and terrain to the base.
