Being in the office 5 days a week combined with the run up to the Christmas 'silly' season has limited progress on the current batch of French Hurry up!

The weather and my schedule have finally combined to allow me to take some pictures of the last batch of French

Communal militia





Genoese crossbowmen





French crossbowmen





Peasant levy, Breton javelinmen, Spanish crossbowmen   





Jaquerie





Pavisiers - Béthune, Saint-Omer, Hesdin

Isn't DBA for SMALL armies ?

Correct, DBA armies are all limited to 12 elements per army. But Big battle DBA has up to 3 armies per side, so getting up to 658 figures isn't that hard, especailly as you can double the number of figures per base in 10mm on some bases (normally in 15/28mm scale there are 4 spear or 4 crossbows per base).

Paul likes to think big, but on a small scale  Wink

Finally got a chance to make some more progress Smiley

Clothing done on Scots men-at-arms and detached "gross varlets"  Smiley

I also tested Vallejo Acrylic Matt Varnish on an element of peasant levy, the 'local' game store has been unable to get stocks of Testors Dullcote Nail biting
Unfortunately just after I sprayed them it clouded over, there was some slight fogging on the figures which dried clear Whew! Undecided
However there was significant fogging on the printed label at the back of the base. I remembered some advice, I think it was on here, and gave the label a second spray. This reduced but did not eliminate the fogging Sad
I'm going to have to wait for a calm sunny day to do another test before I commit to spraying a whole army Waiting Nail biting

If I'm understanding correctly, Paul, (not taken as a given).....I don't think shaking the can even more will make much difference.
It sounds as though there's a bit too much 'medium' in with the varnish itself.....The more you shake the can the more medium is going to get mixed in.

Only tip I've got, is what I used to do to test a new can of varnish.....Which was simply to spray a little over an old newspaper... for me, it was to test the print didn't go 'glossy'.

However....If you've got any of the 'glossy' magazine inserts*, that come with the weekend papers....You might be able to tell if it's still too 'foggy' ?

Cheers - Phil (* I'm assuming you get the same sort of inane crap that we do with our papers, over here. Wink)
