28th Regiment of foot - Part 2.

Hi,
    sorry about the long delay since my last but there been a bug jumping about the house for the past week or so.  I've been down with the man flu or back on daddy duty so I didn't have time to post much.

I did have time to get some painting in on the 28th, so here's some wip pics of the Grenadier Company.

Here's some pics of the completed figures.

 The colour balance is a bit out on these pics but you get the idea.

Next up I've attached them to the bases.

I've tried to add a bit of a story to it, rather than plain ranks of troops. I have sergeant is barking some orders at the back rank and got a curious glance from the front rank as well.  The officer is looking towards where the mounted commanders will be on the centre company.  This should help tie the full unit together.

Next its on to doing the bases.

I'd love to hear what you think of them so please leave some comments below.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Amazing! Im a huge fan of the Napoleonic era. Seeing minis like these when I was a kid is what got me hooked into miniatures. And you nailed it right down to the spattering of mud on their boots and pants. Love it. I especially like the 95th rifles? Reminds me of Sharpe :)

  4. Superb bit of painting and ESPECIALLY modeling. I love the vignettes you've constructed for the bases. Can't wait to see them all completed.

    My only nitpick is a question - do you know if the regimental identification on the packs were in Arabic or Roman numerals? Most British regimental identification for the period I have seen were in Roman. If they used Arabic, that's a superb bit of research.

    Keep it up!
