Anyway I got sevral well placed comments on these french, and it was clear that eyes were not a good idea, so this is version 1.5, much much simpler faces and they look much better.
The rest are as the first ones. I paticularly like how the greatcoat came out, the guy on the left on the second base, a nice mix of colors.
Anyway over to the infomus 3 feet rule, some people say the follow it in their painting, I don't belive them, at 3 feet in 15mm, you only need to white trousers, blue jackts and face flesh. even in 28mm, you really don't need much of anything. And ofcoruse 10mm and 6mm, you might as well just dip the figures in blue and red paint, and you got a british and french army.
Even my very first 15mm figures would look ok at 3 feet. so those that say they paint with the 3 foot rule, lies. those that say your figures would look good at 3 feet, are basicly saying your figures look shit.
Take these for example, up close my paint job is ok, but at this range, you will tell the normal painte(like me) from the great painters(like Giles)
BUT at this range, most of the faults go away, the small details can be seen, but you can't tell if small lines are completly staight or to thick, I'm VERY happy with how they look at this range, and I can garantee it's not 3 feet, it more like half a foot. So I propose the half foot rule, to take the place of 3 foot rule, becasue if I can get figures to look ok at half a foot, blind monkeys can do it.
Anyway that is all I have to say,
