@DintheDin: Thzanks very much! :) Yeah, about those close-ups... somehow they didn't really happen because my camera lense broke and taking pictures became quite a chore. I'm also to add more figures to that force (which I'm currently working on). Once those are done I'll get some proper nice photos though!

@Bloggard: Thanks, Sir! :)


Right, update on these new Prussians: 12x line musketeers, 4 fusiliers to up to existing unit to 12, and 8 Landwehr cavalry from Silesia.



Hope you have an excellent weekend!

They are gorgeous! When you finish I'll be glad to see more of them!
Then possibly some close ups  :)

@DintheDin: Cheers! Yup, I'll post some more proper photos then. :) Now that I got a new lense. I'll never take autofocus for granted again. :D



Heyhey. I was reasonably good this weekend.

Here's the state of affairs on these Prussians:



Still need a good bit of finalization, but I'll do that on all of theminis from that batch at once in the end (along with the basing). For now I started work on 8 Polish lancers who also are part of this batch. I gave it some thought and decided to be boring and just do the 3rd Lancers again. More on these later (when they're more presentable).

Hope you like them so far! I'm aware that they look rather dreary right now; basing usually fixes that :)

I find that as sculpts thy have very natural motion and under your brush they have taken life!
Photos showing your job are never enough!  lol

@DintheDin: Cheers! Yeah, well, it's Calpe figures. They're just good. :D

@SABOT: Thanks very much. Just wait until they're all proper done and based.

Heyhey. Yesterday after a few hours I just couldn't bring myself to paint any more Prussians any more. So I sat down and made 9 more lengths of "all-purpose-28mm-fence" to add to the 10 I did in 2015.



Since I got hat out my system I went back to doing what I'm supposed to do today. Part of the batch of Prussians is a unit of Polish lancers (not sure why, but I don't ask questions. Apart individual wishes concerning style and 'level' of painting, basing, etc. :P ).



I'll do the 3rd regiment, because I really like the uniforms on those. Not the most simple, but very pretty. Not the least becuause they're ratehr similar in look to the 1st lancers of the imperial guard.

Right, that's that. I hope that you like'em so far. Hope to have them done soon. No basing on the lancers as these will be part of an existing collection and the gentleman asked to base them himself.

Superb painting of beautiful figures.  Now wondering if I need yet another SP2 project...

@abi iskander: In this case I'm entirely sure that these are not for SP2! However, if I ever find the time and still am in the mood for Napoleonics then - since the beginning of the year I've been plotting 1809 things for SP2. I'm basically just waiting for the other guys to get going and for a few figures to arrive.. :D

Great work on these. I really like Calpe figures and have a pile of them awaiting some attention, so these pictures are very motivational.

Great stuff.

Calpe make some really nice miniatures to which you have fully done justice with your brushwork.

@Plutarch64: Thanks very much. :) For more nice photos check out the Calpe and Front rank galleries. Those helped me a fair amount.

@Muzfish4: Thanks for the kind words! I really dig these sculpts. Especially those with the round faces and deep-set eyes. Those are really nice sculpts to paint.




Right, Prussians done.







The Landwehr cavalry don't have their lances yet. Not only because it's historically plausible, but also because I've run out of lances. :P More photos once I get resupplied.

Those Polish lancers are finished as well, by the way. WITH lances too! Hooray. Now I better rush on to the next looming deadline whilst hoping that the finished Prussians are well received. Hope you like them too!

Beautiful painting on beautiful figures and I rather like your fencing and table layout as well.  I have a Calpe project lying far down the lead pile, might need to go looking for it.

@levied troop: Thanks very much! :) Oh yes, those calpe minis are really pretty. I especially like the ones with the rounder faces and the very deep-sat eyes. Very pleasant to paint.

@DintheDin: Yus! Thanks. :)



Right, it's Monday! What have we been up to this weekend?


I spent Valentine's eve by playing the 5th campaign game of our Longstreet campaign:


Report should be up soon...ish on Tabletop Stories.

Saturday night I played some boardgames. Sheriff of Nottingham (supergood fun), Dominion (good, as always), Munchkin (fun, as always)


But now let's get to why we're here. I also finished the Prussians (by adding lances to the Landwehr cavalry) and their Polish pals.
