40mm Naps - British Light Infantry

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!

40mm Naps - British Light Infantry

Post by big-gazza » Fri Aug 01, 2008 11:59 pm

Hi,
well these are finally done. Small group of 7 40mm Naps British light infantry from the Perrys range. A bit different than my normal WWII painting but enjoyable. I used the new GW inks a lot on these. Brought the colours on the red and green jackets out well. Borwns also handy for the faces and brown trousers.

Heres the pics

As I said I fairly new to naps so any comments on the uniforms welcome.

thanks

Gazza,
The figures are exceptional and I wish I had your talent.
The only comment I would make is that the 87th. wasn't a light infanty regiment. The only light infantry regiment with green facings, (according to my info), was the 51st.
Sorry to be a pedant,
Dave.

Hi,
thanks for the comments. The GW inks were great help.

As for the 87th being light infantry I couldn't tell you for sure but the customer suppiled the figures, number and colour so its up to him.

Glad you liked them.

Hi,
had a word with the customer. They 87th were a line regiment but they did have a light company and these figres are from that company.

thanks
