I'm still in somewhat of a Napoleonic phase though not as much as a few months ago. Here's a soldier of the British Coldstream Guards, standing a bit away from everyone else.
You, back in formation!
But drawing endless ranks of men isn't always my idea of fun. I tried in 2009 here: [link]
which was alright but took ages. Also I know this has a similar theme to some NTW promo screenshots, not surprisingly the Coldstream one (except it's from a completely different angle of course).
I do like painting faces. It takes a while but I find it's the best judgement of any improvement in skill. Trouble is mine all look similar so I've gone to some effort to make him look older than usual. And, it turned out pretty decent for my standards. (opinion subject to change in a few months time no doubt!)
Edit: Altered one of the hands a bit, added some mud stains
