Hello Old friend!
Now I'm semi back, and this time it's the 88th, They are from the new FrontRank Reenforcements packs.
Truely amazing figures, I decided to paint just 4 figures, this would be 80 soldiers in the standard 1:20 scale, a good british company, that could often fall down to 60 or even less soldiers.
I also painted them quite diffrenly, I normaly semi block paint, finish the main uniform, then do the details.
This time I finished the top uniform totalt first,so jacket, lace, facings, straps ect. then the face, all 6 layers, and hat then the musket, and finnaly the trousers. I did this just to spice things up, I started to get bored with the 5 layers of trousers and 4 layers of jacket, and then all the small detail, this time I did some big clothing, then some small details, and then back to big clothing.
I also used 3 layers on the shako, I normaly only use one or mabye 2, but this time I went all out, not sure tho, it might look to grey? But mabye it just makes them look more sun bleached?
Also to make the unit look more like a 2 rank file I put them very close together to make it as thin as possible, compeard to say the French,
