    Hello folks,
    I have received few samples of these 3D printed figures from Chris Parker at Day of Battle and Madox Historical Miniatures.
    I wa still skeptical of 3D print figures, but these chaps look great and fun to paint.
    I am making a little vignette, it will have 7 or 8 figures of the German Regiment im French Service " La Mark".
    This regiment was dressed in Dark sky Blue , pale yellow lapels , cuffs with lace in silver, silver buttons and lace on their hats. 20220922_091350.jpg 20220922_083600.jpg 20220922_083517.jpg

    Hi Daniel

    Loving seeing these figures come to life , they certainly paint up well

    I like the contrast between highs and lows on the smaller scales ...and there's eyes as well ....that's impressive !

    Your results when painting "whites" are always looking good

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime
