Austin's AB Napoleonic French in Greatcoat

Fresh from Austin's painting station come these AB French in greatcoats.  Austin has definitely come to enjoy painting greatcoats, and you can see why.  He takes advantage of the coats' folds and recesses to get a good texture on them.

The greatcoats on the 1805 Russians had a bit more relief sculpted on, which gives the figures greater "pop" than these Frenchies, but both units turned out well.

I'm glad that most manufacturers have released units in greatcoats.  This was probably very common fighting kit on a number of battlefields.


  1. Well done Austin!!

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Not too shabby for a JUNIOR !

    Seriously, they look really good !

    Nice job Reset !
