Some beginning stuff





These pics represent figures that I have already painted - just so you can get a feel for the style of painting I do. First is the 42nd Highlanders; Old Glory 15mm. There are also other units, such as the buffs, and a brigade in column with a skirmish stand. All of those figures were painted with a black undercoat, and the highlighting was exaggerated due to the small scale. For the blues, I used a navy blue, highlighted with more of a medium blue. Red was produced with a base color of maroon, highlighted with vermillion. The cavalry figures were painted as an experiment with white undercoating, following the procedure noted on the Paintfront website (http://paintfront.tanaka-world.net/). The result is that the horses came out with a far higher definition of the musculature than black undercoat horses. Next up: some French.

Yes, indeed, these are 15s. I'll take a pic with a penny just for fun. Thanks for the comments.

Interesting to see that you are using a similar basing system to myself. What rules are you using??

These figures are based for Shako, although about double the number of figures per stand. I felt that nine guys in a line wasn't very Napoleonic looking, so I made it 18 guys in two ranks.
