Attack on La Haye Sainte at Waterloo in 28mm

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Waterlooman, May 9, 2021.

    Thank you kindly, I try to work on a small group of Six at a time but vary these - sometimes the KGL then back to the French - kind of breaks up sequence of painting the same - also I try to make each one slightly different.

    Evening all, right I now have Eight 1st Regiment Tirailleurs made apart from their back pack sections that will be painted separately before being fitted.

    Hi there W

    Nice looking figures ...are these Perry ? .....interesting these come with separate backpacks !

    Do you temporary base the figures up in a line and work your way along ?

    Look forward to seeing more

    Happy benchtime

    Yes indeed they are Perry's - my work process is to work on a batch of Six-Eight at a time after priming I would do all the same colour first, then move to the next colour and so forth.

    Evening all, some more progress - I have re worked my Three Cuirassiers and got them about as good as I can - I think once they are in the battle they will look ok -

    Yes indeed, it was the Second attempt at a case as the first time a glass case arrived in a wooden case and the glass had smashed, so I decided to change tack and go with a perspex acrylic case, I had it purpose made to my own specifications.

    Hi all, some more progress - the division has had their vests and trousers painted - waiting on getting the garters painted Black.

    To get an idea of scale - they are standing ontop of small acrylic paint jars.

    Thank you kindly, they are Vallejo from their boxed Waterloo paint set - I tweaked the Dark Prussian Blue as it wasn't dark enough - so I added some Black to it, and the Red I made it a little bit less vibrant.

    Evening all, some more progress with my Tirailleurs - I pained and detailed their muskets then the hands with a wash and highlighting, then I painted on a few gaiters and gave the bottoms around the ankles a dirty wash to simulate the muddy conditions due to the rain during the previous night - the figures themselves are nearly finished just need to paint the cocades and buttons - then work on their rear sections containing the haversacks / ammo boxes and sabres.
