I recently painted a commission for some 28mm metal Napoleonic 'Retreat from Moscow' figures, from the Perry Miniatures range.

The Cavalry were painted to my Collector's 'NCO' level, with the Infantry to my Wargaming and Collector's 'Call to Arms' level.

The 'Retreat from Moscow' is a big passion for me, so absolutely loved painting these Miniatures. The conflict was the first Napoleonic Wars History book I ever read and it really got me interested in the Era.

Fancy a commission of your own? Have a project in mind? I'm available for commissions from December.

Thanks guys!

A great set of figures.

If you are looking for constructive criticism, extreme cold does not make a living person turn gray.

Nice figures. Now I know where the term "blue Balls" came from

Superb job – these are all individual characters.

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated!

Yes, you are quite right 79thPA, for the final painting I put a bit more warmth into the flesh and brightened it up a bit.

Thanks for the update. I wasn't sure if this was a finished product or not.
