Vintage 20mm Napoleonic wargaming nostalgia plus random other stuff
Very smart looking!
Thanks Stryker! early days yet, still trying to remember how to paint after a 30 year hiatus.
Those are exceptionally colourful, Dave! Dare I ask what kind of paints are you using?Best regards, WM
Hi Matt, these were painted using Army Painter acrylics and Humbrol metallics, with a coat of Humbrol gloss varnish. I didn't strip the originals, just painted over the top of what looked like matt enamel. Next step is to try the AP acrylics over black undercoat on some trial figures and some over white undercoat. What I'm aiming for is a good 'en masse' look, couldn't hope to approach the level of detail you achieve.CheersDave
Looking good Dave. Are those more recruits massing in the rear?
Indeed they are Tony. Another battalion in Belgic shakos and one of Fusiliers in bearskins.
Very nice job, beautiful mix of red and yellow!
A fine looking battalion. I reckon painting is like riding a bike. You don't forget, but fall off less when sober. My belated salutations........
Looking great, glad to see my painting of British regiments is equal to yours.
Steve, I'm sure if I had time I could do 'museum quality' painting, but for now I just want to get a couple of armies finished so that they look OK from the opposite side of a wargame table. That'll do for me!
