    I've painted the blackened iron pieces using vallejo gun metal grey with a wash of black and silver for the edges.
    I dry brushed vallejo.Bronze on the gun and added some vallejo sapia wash on the creaces.... 20170113_132607.jpg 20170113_132555.jpg 20170113_134616.jpg

    Nice metalwork Daniel but I especially like the effect you've achieved on the wooden parts of the carriage.

    I finished one of the guns today, i must say i am very happy with the result.
    Metals and wood ar every hard for me, but i feel like i am getting the hand of it and practice makes for improving techniques.
    Trial and error are one of the best teachers.
    Next step will be the completion of the artillery crew.

    Where have I been, I seem to have missed quite a bit of this some how.
    Just caught up and well, love it. The addition of the Artillery emplacement has come on in leaps and bounds, they look great.
    Well done Daniel.

    I had the Artillery flag in mind , rather than spent money i have used one spare flag from GMB, it is the last flag on the diorama, so i will do the honor to change the white Colonel's flag to the Auxonne Artillery Regimental Flag.
    The flag consisted of a white cross like all the french flags, quartered by green and Aurora squares, fleur de lys all over the white field.
    I mainly used jo sonja Aurore , and for the green i've use vallejo military green.
    The fleyr de Lys was hand painted with dark brown, and i added some gold/brass over it. 20170117_231223.jpg 20170118_085136.jpg 20170118_223158.jpg

    Beautiful work in such a small scale Daniel. The flags are quite exceptional, and the cannons are superb.
