After three weeks painting Gallic cavalry, I took three days off to paint some of the new Blue Moon Napoleonics. These Austrians are from packs 15NAT-100 and 15NAT-101.
The figures painted up very well and very quickly. I have a pretty good method down for painting Austrians, so that helps, and after painting Gauls with all their individualized checked tartans and checkerboard shirts, it was nice to paint some uniforms!
The Blue Moon figures are very solid sculpts. All the detail is clearly defined, and the figures look great as a unit. I don't think these quite rise to the level of AB Miniatures, but they are definitely give the best bang for the buck.

Once the figures are painted and based, any difference in size is not really noticeable. You can open the above image in a new tab or window to get a blown up view, and you'll see that while the Blue Moon figures are taller than any but AB, they should mix well on the table.
Tomorrow I'll be back to painting Gauls, but it was fun to take a brief Napoleonic break.
