WIP Perry/fornt Rank/Warlord games figures

 I've been working on these guys for the past week while I've been doing the guns couldn't help myself, the Perry French command figures are really nice, on the other hand i hate the warlord game figures they would have to be some of the worse sculpts i've every seen it's taken me nearly a year to do them the horses or all over the lace proportionally anyway need a few more to finish my cav so i've started them and of course the heavy guns are from Reg's commission work that i am continually doing there is one more to base yet.
                                                  All of this work is still in progress
 I've really been taking my time on these guys I've tried a new way of painting the skin and i'm really quite please with the effect and how easy it is to do I've added one more layer to the blue so it now has 4 layers I'm also working on how i do my white adding another 50/50 sky grey white mix before i do the white and i think it looks a lot better.
 This  figures has the three layers of gold now using formula P3 gold as the base it is such a nice colour to use so the dark you see in the gold is actually not black it's the Formula p3 gold

 Nearly done Reg, I'll base up the 32 Dragoons this weekend for undercoatng and start them next week
Oh the painting never stops.

28mm Front Rank Hanoverian light guns completed

 I've been working away slowly on these guns for a couple of weeks now, finally finished the light and medium guns. I've finished all the painting for the heavies but haven't finished the basing as i ran out of materials. I'm quite happy with the end result sadly the pictures don't really show th the work i've done on the the wood grain effect

SYW Hanoverian artillery update

 Well I've been slowly working away on these during my 30min lunch break for the past week and a bit and they are finally almost finish just a couple of little things left to do, I started the guns the other night and they all have one coat of paint one of wash and i started the metal today

 Three of these guns belong to the British which i will start once i have completed the dragoons
you can see from the bottom picture how you get the grain effect this gun still needds two highlights on the wood work and then finish the metal

Hanoverian Artillery crew WIP

Sorry about the quality of the picture believe it or not these guys have three layers of paint on all the blue red and buff but you wouldn't think so tomorrow i'll add the gold buttons and start on the wood and metal they actually look real nice in the flesh. I've started the guns three have the base coat, but not a lot of work here this week i have a sermon to prepare for church this week which will take up quite a bit of my time.

28mm Napoleonic Perry French WIP

 Here's a couple of shoots of some figures that i'm working on for some reason i went a bit mad and based them before i had checked that they were complete, very strange thing to do the infantry need a highlight on the guns the command stand above well it has quite a few details left to do, also i have completely run out of grasses and flowers so need to do a large order

28mm Perry miniatures Napoleonic Staff set

 I'd been working on these figures for a while painting one here or there and then putting them away finally decided it was time to finish them off. The base is one of my wife's coasters or should i say it was, she won't be putting cups of tea on these lads.
