Thought I'd take a few minutes to post some shots of my Austrian Napoleonic army's officer corps and artillery park. I still want to add another battery or two of artillery, but I'm now working on cavalry (cuirassier).

Those are rather nice. I like your painting style. I bought some AWI Brits in a similar style a while back and when the guy sent pics they were hi-res and with a 15mm fig filling the screen I wasn't too sure the style worked. Then I saw the figures in real life and they looked excellent! It's a good style to pull off, which you do. I often think my stuff looks better close up but that a lot of the details go when viewed at gaming distance.ReplyDelete
Nice basing as well! :)
Are these layered on a black undercoat? It's a bit like the Foundry method isn't it? They look great. Heck, if I had any figures painted to ANY standard of late I'd be glad. Perils of having a young family.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the nice comments! Up close my style does look "cartoony", but the figures "pop" on the table, which is what I'm after. Yes - 3 layers of color on a black primed basecoat. This is the most I've painted in a while, and it felt great!ReplyDelete
I hope to see them soon!!ReplyDelete
Figures look great! Can I ask what do you use for the brown artillery uniforms?
The Austrian brown jacket color uses a chocolate brown base coat over black primer, then burnt sienna, then raw sienna (I think....a reddish and then a lighter shade). The final highlight is just the last shade of sienna lightened up a bit with some off white/cream.ReplyDelete
