It took three years to paint these 6,000 castings. Come by and take a look!

Very impressive!

If I had to rate them on scale of 1 to 10 they would be an 11. Not to mention the huge quantity. Fantastic work.

I bookmarked this for reference. Impressive is an understatement.

Great work.
I got a blister from scrolling through the photos.

Exceptional work and collection. I would be happy to own one such as this.

Superb! Great figures, masterfully painted.

evilgong Supporting Member of TMP07 Jun 2018 4:24 p.m. PST

Superb, it must be a joy to get them on the table.

I tried to estimate my painting speed and got about 15% of the figs done in the time that this collection was made.

Terrific Work

So that's what happens to them once they leave the factory.
Congratulations to you both!

Amazing work Scott, way to stick with it!

I couldn't paint them in 30 years. They look like 25s. A beautiful collection.

Someone in our hobby will assuredly find fault with strap belt color on the fourth regiment of Austrians, second figure from the back on stand number three.

Puddinhead Johnson08 Jun 2018 11:52 a.m. PST

Wonder what the commission cost….

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP08 Jun 2018 5:37 p.m. PST

ditto to Mr. Johnson. What is that much time worth? Great work.

von Winterfeldt08 Jun 2018 9:30 p.m. PST

very impressive

Scott MacPhee09 Jun 2018 6:46 a.m. PST

Thanks for the kind words, all!

Lol @ Yogi.

Yep definitely!!

I've got a hunch as to who it might be as well. Lets see if they pop up…

(great painting BTW)

I am as impressed by the photography skills, as by the superb painting.

Your work reminds me how much better the Empress Dragoons and Carabiniers are modelled in 15/18mm scale, when compared with 28mm. I love the portrayal of the French hussar regts.

Did you ever do the 2nd "Red"/Dutch lancers of the Guard? Cannot see them. No one makes my favourite unit in the scale, the Gendarmes d'Elite.

Anthony Barton15 Jun 2018 9:13 a.m. PST

Oh yes they do… relatively recent additions..


Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP16 Jun 2018 7:04 a.m. PST

Oh I could weep. Why do you only work in 15/18mm scale?

I have a very small number of your figures, for a series of carriage projects I tried out.

Their quality is amazing and, throughout the range, sensible poses and humanoid anatomy are the rule. There is only one fatal flaw……… paraphrase the little guy "to change now, too late for me it is".

Anthony Barton16 Jun 2018 8:34 a.m. PST

I'm afraid Yoda's remark applies to me as well.Having started some thirty-three years ago , people are still expecting me to finish the range!
