Great job! Nice to see some more animation from FR too.

Front Rank infantry are getting better in terms of anatomy, but so many of their cavalry figures are irredeemable. There the animation is often overdone, but they have arms thicker than their thighs and with very peculiar shoulder anatomy.

But, the dragoons in the background. You have not shown them before? Must be Perry, the new metal dragoons surely, but hard to see. They look even better than the infantry. If shown before please post a link. If not……

Very well painted. I really like them.

You've even commented on them.

Yep, that's them!

It is an age thing………..

Having followed that thread link, can I ask why you still prefer metal for the cavalry? Curious.

Really nice painting. I love the brightness and sharpness of the Infantry, it really brings them to life.

:D

Lovely work!

Very nicely done, I admire anyone who can paint Napoleonics! Especially when they look this good.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP14 Nov 2017 9:50 a.m. PST

Looking very good!

On those dragoons in the back, what color is being used for the paint on their trousers?

Here's a funny thing.

It is all about cavalry as models.

I now know how much work goes into an infantry unit this size, painted to this standard……

and what do we all ask about? The Dragoons in the background!

You may weep silently now.

I think it was: coat d arms barbarian leather. Coat d arms horse tone dun and foundry buff leather B. (I tibnk)

Nice work! Love the look with bicornes

I like really much your GNW units, but now I'm also starting to wait for your napoleonic production…….. candies for the eyes….

Those FR packs at a great deal to the look of a unit now. Excellent work! I am building forces for the 1806 campaign and I'm using figures but multiple companies just to have some difference on the table.

Excellent work!
