 Hi guys

Working on some Portuguese and British Characters for the Silver Bayonet, and have done some paint work on the Portuguese Cacadores, still a bit of work to do to them, they can be used in either TSB or Sharpes practice.

 Hi guys

Nearly finished these Cacadores, some more work on details, then finish the bases, Iíll start the Brunswick Oels jagers at the back next. These guys were fun to do, thinking of doing another group in the earlier uniform with the Belgic shako, but I have a unit of Portuguese line conversions I need to finish first.

Hi guys

I love seeing converted figures at 3 stages, pre undercoated in all their green stuff glory, undercoated, which pulls the figures together and shows the detail ready to paint, and of course finished, here are some pics of my Oels jager sharpshooter undercoated ready for the paint brush, this will be the start of a Brunswick Sharp practice force.

 Hi guys

Finished up a bunch of 1805 Russians, some Italian, WŁrttemberg artillery and French revolutionary war cav on commission, a good months work here.

 Hi guys

Have finished the Portuguese Cacadores, and have made good progress on these Brunswick Oels jagers, a bit more painting the weathering and finishing the bases, all converted from Perryís and Victrix plastic.

Like the Brunswick Oels - not sure about the officer figure's tunic though (not your problem, it's an error in the sculpting) as the sharpshooter officers never had braiding on their tunics until 1815.
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

Itís my error as itís my sculpting, I converted these about 10 years ago and used the Capitan miniatures figures as my guide.

Ah, ok.  The original 1809 "scharfschutzen" officers wore Prussian fusilier uniform with bell-top shakos, and no frogging on the tunic.  In fairness, that may have changed when they moved over to British uniforms following their brief holiday on the Isle of Wight in 1810, but a lot of that is down to broad assumptions made by British historians - for example, they have all three detached companies in that uniform and carrying Baker rifles, whereas it was only the scharfschutzen company in both cases (the other two were armed with muskets and wore the same uniform as the rest of the battalion).

Anyway, nice figures.

Thanks for the info, itís not a total loss, he is not integral to this sharp practice sub unit, I have some Perry Brunswick figures coming to flesh out the force, with some foot command figures, he may end up relegated to ďthe Silver BayonetĒ where a little artistic flare is fine/encouraged.

 Hi guys

I finished the Brunswick Oels Jagers sharpshooters, I need to add some writing and the horse emblem on the pack, I think there maybe a decal out there, Iíll look into that.

I recently finished a large 15mm 1805 Russian commission, which I enjoyed, and it inspired me to do my own skirmish sized force in 28mm, although 28mm Napoleonics are only a very small percentage of my business, maybe 5-7%, I have painted maybe 4000-5000 over the last 8 years, and I can not recollect ever painting an Elite miniatures Napoleonic figure, I had seen them here and there online, and wasnít sure if I liked their style, however as they are a local Australian producer, I decided to give them a go for this project, and the package arrived today.

Well, I must say Iím surprised at how good they look in the hand, I was expecting I would give them head swaps to make them less cartoony, but I actually like them, and I will have no hesitation on buying more, each 4 man pack comes with 2 poses, so I am swapping heads to increase pose variety. Their size is also pretty good, they fit right in with Perryís, Iím well pleased with this purchase and looking forward to painting them, they are ready for some detail on the bases. Iíve got about 60-70 figs to do, Iím starting with 2 units of jagers.
