I have begun expanding the French forces in preparation for a recreation of the battle of Vimiero. To see the first units finished in the expansion, pop on by my blog. There are a ton of photos to entertain any Napoleonic history or toy soldier enthusiast.

They are awesome! thumbs up thumbs up I'm not a fan of glossy, but you sure did a great job on those figs. I love the scale. Mine aren't nearly as pretty. Plus I onw a bunch of Der Kriegspilelers.

John Leahy,

The Der Kriegspielers are definitely a bit more challenging to paint as they just aren't as well detailed being copies of the Hinton Hunt originals for the most part, but can be quite effective with a little patience. I have a bunch as well. Next up will likely be the legion du Midi made with Der Kriegspielers.

I never used to appreciate the glossy look, but have really come to appreciate it in this application. Somehow the toy soldier look just seems appropriate for these classic miniatures.

Yeah, they were knockoffs of HH. I lived near where Custom Cast operated in Dayton, Ohio. That's what made up my Nap armies in the 70's and early 80's. Still have them. I love the scale. Only got some HH over the years. Last were from David Clayton. Had to work to get that order.
