Giant Commission -- Complete French Army

It took six months, which is about two months longer than I expected, but it is all done.  Here is the entire army.

Line Infantry





Light Infantry 

Light Cavalry 




Heavy Cavalry 



Artillery



Imperial Guard




Markers


That French army includes 648 foot, 168 cavalry, and 20 guns.


And now the next army waits.  Here are 252 Austrian line infantry just waiting for some paint!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Scott! I am saving the British for last, as they seem the easiest for me to paint.

    1. Thanks, Paul! I just try to set aside two hours every day. Some days I get in a little more, some days a little less.

  8. Simply fantastic Scott! An absolute inspiration for those wanting to do 15/18mm Napoleonic armies. I would be depressed having to give those up no matter the money. I'm sure the buyer will pop open a champagne bottle when he gets them.

    1. The base coat is Delta's "Prussian Blue," and the highlight is a mix of "Prussian Blue" and Vallejo's "Intense Blue" at about 1:4.
