...and Another One

Another French battalion using HaT 8095. This time the officer is from the Italeri 6092 set, with a head replacement from a HaT 8095 figure. The drummer is a metal SHQ/Kennigton figure. Besides the drummer, the firing figure and the rear row, right hand figure are the only ones without head replacements.

As the natural light has been rubbish of late and I don't have a proper set up for indoor photography, I used the flash with these figures. I'm not usually a fan of flash photography with figures, but against the black background I reckon these have come out quite well.

  3. They look rather splendid to me and certainly jump out of that black background.

    1. I have about 4 more battalions of infantry to go, though if I have time, I thought I might replace some of my older figures which look a little basic by comparison. But as I've still got the Italian and Bavarian cavalry, a few more artillery stands, generals and pioneers to go, I may not actually get around to it!

    2. Your rate of painting is exceptional, so I am sure that you'll make it.

  7. Excellent work as always. The likes of Franznap, Schilling etc make me want to own at least a small formation in 20mm.

  8. Another impressive battalion Johnny Rosbif.

    Only about 4 more battalions to go - are you yearning to paint something other than French infantry? 8O)

    All power to your brush.

    Salute

  9. I love the way you made your figures looks unique! The small size drummer (20 mmm?) is a great addition
