Scruffy Infantry WIP

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Scruffy Infantry WIP

Post by Adam Hayes » Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:16 am

A proper work in progress shot here, some of the Militia/ Rebel figures released this year. These are part of some bases that I am painting to be multiple use, either scruffy Jacobites or campaign worn Russians on the Pruth. These will be in mainly red as that is suitable for Russian smallclothes and Jacobite ad hoc uniforms. I will just add an appropriate command stand to complete the transformation.

These two are from one of the open-handed packs and I have used them as a musketeer with firearm carelessly balanced on his shoulder (if it was loaded, it's not now!) The other fellow is now a sergeant with his purposeful looking polearm.

A quick snap of the first couple of bases of these great figures. (The sculpting not my painting!)

I will sort out a command base to go with these for Jacobite Irish next and after that a GNW Russian command base. I think these will work with both.
