Better “en retard” than “jamais”

At last we’ve got it ready – well, ready enough! So you can now enjoy the French infantry page on the Calpe website. It includes a few pictures of figure packs painted by Peter F. himself and we’ll be adding photos of the painted versions of the rest of the packs as they’re completed. See above and below for examples. I’ve also added a slightly swankier new way of showing the pictures full size when you click on the thumbnails and I’ll retro-fit that to the other pages where we use thumbnail photos. Oh yes, we’re also going to be adding a new section to the website called “Painting Notes” that’ll provide uniformology and painting information. The idea is to avoid cluttering up the pages about the figure ranges with that sort of information in future. These are likely to be a joint effort between Peter and I. The first part of the French infantry painting notes already exists in draft form.
What else is news? Mainly that several other packs will be added to this set and I’ll update the page as details of each become available. I’ve already mentioned Pack F11, the head variant version of the regimental command pack (F10). So I can now confirm the imminent addition of Pack F12, the battalion command pack, and Pack F13, it’s head variant twin. There will be further packs of mounted officers, officers on foot, NCOs etc.
