Being a blog about the Napoleonic miniatures I'm painting, when I should be really painting ancients instead...
A very nice paintjob, the white feathers should really set him off!
One question on the trumpeter should he not be in reverse colors or is that only for regimental trumpeters? Like your basing especially wish more folks would should some of the stages and techniques they use to get this just "right."
Great conversion - looks the part. Dean
Great, Im shure he looks even greater on the fields of battle.
Simple but effective coversion! I agree with Ray... White feathers would really set him off!
Nice command stand!
Beautiful painting and lovely basing. Great work.
Very nice command stand, 20mm??
Thanks very much chaps. I shall do those feathers, tonight... The minis are 28mm Perry's, Anibal.VolleyFire, I believe the dragoon trumpeters had reverse colours earlier in the war, but by the later war wore normal uniforms but with the coloured tape with the "N's" on.Cheers, Simon
hey Simon cool - too be frank i never cared which way they were painted unlike some uniform freaks i know where everything has to be jusssssst right - and in the right hat which for Austrians can be a pain given the hasket / helmet / shako Just get the units on the table for the fight i say by the time they got to the battlefield campaign wear and tear took its toll on uniforms etc etc etc- good paint jobs none the less!
Again back to basing the figures step by step on your turf and texturing would be cool to see - I have never quite gotten the hang of doing that.
HI VFW, this is what I do http://bigredbat.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Basing. These days I use more tufts, and cover the base texture pretty much entirely.
