A blog about little soldiers and their big battles
When I look at the plastic figures on the sprue I never can quite see the finished product in my mind's eye. If I am looking at another period - like Crimean or ACW work like this is really getting me to consider 1/72nd. Absolutely fantastic work.
It Looks Fantastic! Great Bases! Superb Painting! Greetings from BB
Marvelous. Now you just need to do another regiment each with yellow, orange, and rose pink facings! :-)
I sure must, if I am to catch up with a collection such as yours some day, Peter! :-D
Ah, but I cheat by only doing 8 figure regiments! :-)
Nice painting as usual, blue is a tad light for my liking, just personally prefer darker blues for French, but you do paint a mean 1/72 plastic fig, due to the softer detail it's a real talent getting them to look that good, metals are much easier.
Hi, Dan, thanks!I usually do my french on a lighter shade of blue than their historical colors to get a better visual on the tabletop. Same with prussians and russians, they're are all going to be painted a tad lighter than real life uniforms, so they don't look all black from a couple feet away.
Excellent work on these Cuirassiers! Real nice and clean painting!GreetingsPeter
