Being a blog about the Napoleonic miniatures I'm painting, when I should be really painting ancients instead...
and perhaps a Napoleonic TtS!? Else, what rules are you playing?
Hi von Bob, I can barely understand my own rules; there's no chance at all of me understanding anyone elses! ;-)
The perry ones are a bit nicer. Few more poses, mold lines better placed. Here is a handy post https://dotsofpaint.blogspot.com/2013/09/warlordperry-comparison-review-russian.html
I agree! I asked the Perrys whether they have plans to make Russians in greatcoats; the answer was that it's a low priority, which is a great shame. I have a friend who is designing some though, as resin casts, so that might get me out of a hole. I want the army to be portable.
Weight is a big issue with portability, so avoiding metal is a good step. It would probably be a simple conversion to get the warlord french in great coats, and the (late) russians and use the extra heads to make russians in great coats.
I forgot to say, you can order a sprue of each to do a test without throwing too much money at an uncertain project.
Hi Dave, the Warlords are OK minis, but the Russians had a longer-cut greatcoat and unusual straps. I'll probably need at least 400 of them so it's worth getting the right look if I can. :-)
What armies are you building Simon?
Hi Carlo, for Naps I am mainly focussing on La Garde for 1814/Waterloo, and a post-1812 infantry division. Randomly, I also have most of a division of Dragoons.
My Napoleonic painting is currently at glacial speed so I might have something by the time you've written your rules,it's quite nice to feel no pressure!Best Iain
:-) I'll get there. In the end...
