First Six Of Thirty Six.


Started the mammoth paint of my last Austrian infantry unit . It is going to be Infantry Regiment No. 28 Graf Wartensleben  with grass green facings . Doing them in groups of six and once I get into the swing of things should be quite fast , the advantage of the figures being the same pose means that once you have got a few done you go into auto-mode knowing were the paint goes . I'm doing it with a black undercoat and trying to leave some of it showing to suggest shading . These are ready for a coat of gloss varnish tomorrow.

  1. Your Austrians look terrific! I am a firm adherent of the black primer school of painting.

  4. One of my first metal armies was a 15mm Minifigs- Austrian Army...I do like the uniforms of the Austrians- the Line Infantry, Artillery and Generals...your Army will look very nice on completion. Are you going to do more troops for your Crimea Armies Tony? Regards. KEV.
