British Naps finished

 

Finished these fellas off.
Gave them a spray with some Purity seal and decided that was matt enough without going back over with the paint on matt.
Base is Khemri brown with a wash and drybrush, then some static grass and a few bits of coarse turf.
Won't win any prizes but they're finished.








The Frenchies need a bit more work (I missed off the epaulettes on a couple) but should join them by the end of the week.
I've found a few more that I  assembled when I first got the boxes. I've rebased them on pennies to match these and will give them a quick coat over the next few weeks. Once I've got nine or ten of each I'll download the Song of Drums and Shakos rules and give them a whirl.

  1. Well, I like them a lot! The dip gives the figure a suitably dirty look.

    I agree it gives them an on campaign feel.

  3. Those look okay to me. On the battlefield the tiny inaccuracies will not stand out I presume.

    Well done !

  4. There are inaccuracies?
    :)

    I'm sure there are, but they look enough like redcoats to me, and they were pretty quick to bash out for wha is essentially a minor side project (that maywell fizzle out in short order!)

  5. They look pretty good Tom.

    Have you tried the stain on grey trousers yet? I'd be interested in seeing the results if you have.
