It really is a nice figure, and painted up well. I don't think it took much longer than a regular 28mm figure. There's more to paint, but everything is larger and easier to get to. I really like the figure, and plan on getting more once the British Lights or Line infantry are available. Grenadiers don't seem like regular skirmish opponents to me. I'm thinking of just getting about 10 figures per side and doing some of the Jersey fights.
