They are excellent – my favourite scale for Napoleonics by a long way. Do you have just French?

WOW !!!!

Hmmm. Not impressed. Third row, fourth chap in. His turnbacks are missing a flaming grenade.

Ok, only kidding! Not sure my 28mm figures could compare with what you have produced here. Truly amazing…….

Thanks guys,
Le petit , sorry i only have the French , i do this for a living and as the wife keeps telling me the bills dont pay themselves so it will be up for sale/auction in a week or so.
Been working on this for a few months in between commissions, and will be sad to see it go but as i dont game it would be a shame for it to sit in the cupboard gathering dust.
Deadhead i think i can see the flaming grenades in this pic :) lol

I wish I could do that, but, My skill is limited. would love to be able to field like 15K napoleonics of various nations

great paint job and photos. i remember how vibrant the blue and red was from your artillery pics, and was amazed how vibrant the shako pompons are with this set.
GL with the auction, you deserve to make some good money on them.

Kev 64,

A superb job. What basing sizes are you using? They look lie 60mm by 30mm for the infantry. Are they for a specific rules set?

Mollinary

Kev,

Could be interested, been looking to make the jump back into Napoleonics for some time. Cannot pm you, not a supporting member I'm afraid. You say you do this for a living – do you have a "commercial" e mail address?

These are brilliant, I struggle to do buttons at 15mm, great work, do you have a blog? you should, I would follow, even though its not my scale, you can't argue against the skill needed for these results.

Only just noticed. You were serious! The grenadiers, in second rank at least, really do have flaming grenades on their turnbacks. Incredible………Merry Christmas. Go on, tell us. How's it done? There is no cocktail stick that fine. Pinhead maybe?

popeye27 Dec 2012 3:18 p.m. PST

They look fantastic…love them… well done Kev
