I just wanted to share with you the last part of my brigade commands,Colonels!




I had some problem with the new badab black wash (nuln oil) so thats why they seems shiny in the pictures but in in real life you can't notice it.

On the blog I have some additional pictures of the full brigade commands and of some things to come.

So please drop by, link

Coincidentally, I'm painting the selfsame three Perry officers, and these pics of yours are an inspiration!

Thank you for the comments! It's been fun to paint the officers and get some variation from the rank and file.

In January I'm going back to regular battalions starting with a Légère regiment and maybe some artillery if time allows it.

Please drop by or blog to see our first test game of republic to empire.

Beautifully done! May I ask which brand/color blue you used? It's a very pretty shade, and similar to the uniform plates of Rousselot.

I start with vallejo dark prussian blue then highlight with gamesworkshop caledor blue, after that I do a wash with Nuln oil and highlight with caledor blue.
