Recreating a 1970s Wargame army using 20mm vintage figures.
Beautiful work Ian, I have just finished varnishing, but still have to base, a vintage artillery officer like yours, but he is set to command a voltigeur company from a new line battalion rather than a battery. They are the most wonderful little figures to paint.
Lovely work Ian, the French Arm is indeed growing look forward to seeing them in action or on parade or both.Paul
Top painting Ian. Looking great, and particularly looking forward to the account of the action.
Michael - I particularly enjoy painting HH officers as they are generally beautifully animated. Not so keen on varnishing though - first attempt has dried matt!Paul & James - with luck there will be a game on Tuesday...
These lads are up to the parade ground standard I have come to expect from your brush, Ian. Mind you, I regard it as a personal triumph when anything dries matt these days. Don't wish to open a fight, though..........
Ian, if you are still using Humbrol satin cote, try adding a second coat after 24 hours, if this does not work I would go to the Humbrol website and get myself a new pot. They have been reformulated to the original specs and are now manufactured in the UK again. I purchase gloss and satin this way and got the new batch and have had no problems, however I always apply 2 coats 24 hours apart. Hope this may be of help.
Impressive-how many do you have left in the "to do" pile?
Matt - I still have a lot of stuff left but the French army is more or less up to strength now. I intend to add another unit of cavalry and then turn my eye to the British and Prussians!
Very nice work!
Very pretty. Ian, It will be good to see whether they shoot as purty as they lookRoy
