It’s time for another update.
This time here are some pictures of AB Miniatures 18mm and Perry and Victrix 28mm figures I’ve recently finished. I painted them all using the “Army Painter” (AP), method.
I start with spraying the miniature with Flat Black paint, except for the Portuguese Cacadores, (I used Brown as the base coat for them). Next, I painted the miniature with “block” colours and then “slopped” on AP Strong Tone dip. Finally I sprayed them with AP anti-shine varnish. Base and flock, then play!
First here is some French Artillery I painted up.
Now it must be said that in the first picture the gunners were painted by DRAGON PAINTING SERVICE, (DPS) but the guns, and the the remaining Gunners were painted by me. Most are AB Miniatures, but you will notice some FANTASSIN Miniatures (guns and gunners) also. The Destroyed guns are from EUREKA MINIATURES.
(Below) AB Miniature Gunners (with DPS Painted Gunners on Nos 1,2, and 3 Guns) The 4th AB Miniature gun and Gunners were painted by me.
(BELOW) The massed guns. Every Gunners dream!
Now lets look at some 28mm figures. Here is acomparison photo of the VICTRIX (R) and PERRY (L) NCOs with Pennants. The Perry figure comes as one of 6 figures in the code FN13 "Line Infantry NCO" pack. The Victrix figure came with a Multi Box deal, so I don't know if you can buy him as an individual figure.
(BELOW): The VICTRIX and PERRY NCO side by side
I think you'd agree both are great figures.
Next is some PERRY "Voltigeurs" (code FN8), that I've painted as Grenadiers and a PERRY Officer
Back to 18mm AB Miniatures again. Here are some Portuguese Cacadores and Militia.
