Continuing adventures in 2mm…


I know it might seem weird showing people how to get around buying my figures, but this is a hobby after all…

This blog post is a precursor to a cool project I did over the last few days, which I'll be posting about next.

I'd like to see some close-up pics, especially demonstrating the painting technique.

Agreed. I added another picture with some close-ups and the component pieces painted prior to assembly.

Here's the follow up: Wagram on a 24" hand painted map with a scratch built army.

nice work! I've messed about with a similar idea. The impressionistic look is great at this scale!

That's a pretty cool idea. I may give that a go soon. Thanks.

Any ideas on how to do the cannons?

I used my 3d printed artillery and trimmed the sprues down.

I have some of ForwardMarch's cavalry, and I am very impressed. I'll post pictures when I'm done, but I'm working on a 1:1 model of the Union Brigade in 1815. I have the Inniskillings about done, taking my time and being more fussy about detail than I should be. And DANG they look good.
