Finished the Prussian infantry battalion, 21 figures in all. As mentioned in the previous post, they are old Heinrichsen castings, first issued in 1853. Painted with acrylics.
I enjoyed painting these and the work went quickly on account of their small size and relatively simple uniforms. I do plan to base them, knocking them down like dominoes a few times while setting up the photos certainly reinforced that as being the right approach.
They look great- I bet those muskets are a bit fragile, though!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Simon. The pointy parts are actually a lot more resiliant than you might think. They can be repeatedly bent and straightened out.ReplyDelete
They're very nice figs - also nice painting.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, Andras. Glad you like them.ReplyDelete
Lovely figures and brushwork. I feel the 1848 Butterflies stirring.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Alte Fritz. Why not indulge the butterflies from time to time ? ;-) Unless I've missed something, you've been remarkably consistent sticking to your knitting with the 7YW era over the years.ReplyDelete
Its been said before but they look great!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ross !ReplyDelete
Again a masterpiece coming out of your hands. My biggest compliments for that distinguished artwork - it forms a queue with your former oeuvres. I adore your talent!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much. Not sure I'm worthy of that but it's gratifying to read it anyway.
