I was able to sneak in some painting over spring break: 80 British line infantrymen from Blue Moon.
I painted two regiments: 24th and 41st Foot. I will be fielding these regiments in Spain, so I went with a mix of Spanish brown trousers to depict regiments which had been campaigning for a while.
The flags are from GMB. The figures are based for General de Brigade, 3/4" frontage by 1" depth with four figures per base.
The only problem with the castings was a notch where the bayonet met the stock on one of the infantryman poses, which looked as though it might break under heavy use. I smeared the affected area with 5 minute epoxy before priming. You can see the resulting lump on one figure above. It's a small defect, and I doubt it will be noticeable during play.
I painted these figures with a mix of Delta Ceramcoats and Vallejo (red and metallics).
I will probably add more grey trousers on my next batch of figures, but I do like that mix of browns and tans. It helps these regiments look more distinctive.
The elite company men have nice looking shoulder wings.
All in all, I am impressed with these figures. They are not quite as nice as AB, but they should hold up better with frequent gaming.
lovely work on theseReplyDelete
Really nice miniatures! I like the way you get the shading done on them. Well done.ReplyDelete
Scott, they turned out really nicely. The packs I bought had lots of flash extending from the right arm to the body - so either you were lucky, or I wasn't!ReplyDelete
Stunning work as always, Scott.ReplyDelete
These look insane!ReplyDelete
Those are brilliant, and I am liking that scale more than I care to admit. Thanks for Sharing.ReplyDelete
Scott - these look better than my 28s. Well done.ReplyDelete
Scott, as always, fantastic work. Your style is just so clean, clear, and perfectly toy soldier. They could easily be 28s!:)ReplyDelete
