Austrians in August

Post by dashing blade » Wed Aug 17, 2011 3:20 pm

Ordered some victrix figs yesterday,and asked about the release dates for the Austrians,looks like late August,due to a few delays in production.
The gentleman i spoke to may have been asked about the Austrian release date many,many times :!: However he was still polite :)
Rather good customer service too.

Decisions decisions.

I am 8 figures away from finishing the 6th Division at Salamanca.

Now do I start Pakenhams Division(figures and flags already sitting waiting) or do I start on an Austrian division for 1813/14. I really want to see if a white spray and dip will allow super fast painting for these guys :)

It worked for my French.

Bill, when I painted my Saxons I first painted them in light grey then dipped them and highlighted in white. I was pleased with the result and this is probably how I will be doing my Austrians. You can see the Saxons doubling as Italians at the weekend.

Jim,

Your French are just sprayed and dipped? Looked impressive.

Dave,

I have found an 'antique white' spray, was going to give that a try, see if it gives a slightly warmer colour than starting from a grey and highlighting up. I'll no doubt experiment with a few methods. Wish I could paint as well as some on here, but at the end of the day I'm happy if they pass the 3' test :)

Thanks for the input guys.

Bill.
