So I have decided to get rid of all my DOW, French and Russians. So question was sell as are or paint them. I decided its going to be a mixture.

So here's the first lot. Two foot limbers. Minifigs figures which aren't the most detailed but look good en masse. the crews were old painted ones. I really enjoyed this not having painted 15mm Napoleonics for years now.

Great job on these!! Would not have realized they were Minifigs without you mentioning it.

@Widowson – enjoyed doing those. Probably owes a lot to the galze of Devlan Mud to finish them off

@VonBlucher – Cheers man thats a wicked compliment. Got loads more to do yet Russian, DOW and French 15s. Might not tart them all up lol

Devlan Mud is a good wash, but the replacement wash from Citadel is not exactly same, but still works good, think it is called Earth shade or something.

Fantastic paint jobs, btw. I have tons of 15mm Naps myself. Great work!!!

These are brilliant. I've always believed that the paint job is as important to the look of a unit as the make and price of the figures that make it up and these support that belief. Why pay for expensive 18mm figures when comparatively cheap 15s can look this good?
