Hi guys

I have painted at least 5 largish 15mm Saxon army commissions, and have just finished the largest one so far, I wont concentrate on post pics of the infantry as I have post many pics of these types before, just an overall pic to show size of the army, but there are some Cavalry units I haven't painted before, so will show more pics of those
Prinz Clemens Uhlans – green and red
Saxon Zastrow Cuirassiers – yellow with black cuirass
Saxon gaurde du corps – yellow and blue
Saxon Hussars – blue and white
Saxom Leib Grenadiers – red and yellow infantry
as well as my first 15mm ACW in the form of AB generals sets
All comments welcome
Loads more pics here

Impressive but… how can you paint the infantry that tight on the stick???

Hi Dan,
What outstanding job. Very impressive.

I could almost give up on the One True Scale when I see work like this. My favourite unit of the era, the Saxon Garde du Corps….no one does them in 28mm to this standard of modelling. Great castings but anatomy is always a bit suspect, which ever make.

But how could you resist their trumpeter? I know you don't need one, but that is like saying your hussars do not "need" an eagle bearer in a charge!

Thanks guys

Hi deadhead what about Eureka's 28mm Garde du corps? I think they're pretty good.


von Winterfeldt19 Oct 2016 10:34 p.m. PST

very impressive – but yes how do you paint them so densly glued to the stick

Great work!

Not really that densely packed on the stick, I prefer it that way as it makes production line painting quicker for me.

Eureka GDCs………. I have indeed a unit and shown here before. Absolutely superb castings. The monogram on the shabraque is amazing. Great animation and nice range of figures.

Only criticism is that horses and especially riders are a bit "slender" for heavy cavalry. The Gardes themselves I though benefitted from Greenstuff to add, to significantly widen their shoulders.

Personal taste. I thought the end result to be the best on the market

The issue I have when I approach that compaction on the sticks id shadow from lack of primer. How do you circumvent that issue w/o overspray?
Or do you prime by hand?


Gunner Dunbar Supporting Member of TMP20 Oct 2016 3:12 p.m. PST

I always double prime, I used to spray once, then again by hand, but have moved to spaying twice, no coverage problems, and less rubbing off when handling.

Excellent work Dunbar. How busy are you paint schedule wise. Im interested in getting some AB Napoleonics painted up.

Love AB figures and your painting highlights just how nice they are.
