The raising of the Saxon Army 1810-1813

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!

Colin,

This will be quite a great sight!

Bryce,

Yes, you can say so! One Army finished, three more to go :wink: :D

Scruff,

There will be a lot of pictures from Derby! I think Barry will make pictures and eventually Steve, my sculptor, will be there too with his shooting stuff.

So plenty of pictures will be taken!

Thanks and Cheers,
Günter

Hi Gunter,

These armies are almost becoming a museum exhibit in their own right.
Amazing !

It very much lived up to expectations Gunter! Thanks for marching them from Vienna to Derby and now back again!

Thank You for the kind Comments!

I am very pleased with the brushwork of Terry and Toby from Artmaster.
They did a real good job by painting those three Regiments in only 6 weeks of time.

Most of the boys took pictures of my Army and will make them public in the future.

Dear Friends,

Here are a few pictures Barry has made of my Saxons while they were encamped in Derby :D

One thing is certain. Within the next 6 month's I will replace the 5 Light Cavalry Regiments by new ones but this time painted by Artmaster.
The replaced Regiments will be sold to anyone who wants them.

Cheers,
Günter

Actually there is nothing "wrong" with them. They simply lack the sort of detail I wanted to have in the first place.

My fault was that I accepted them and now I have to pay the price for them a second time.

Cheers,
Günter

Hi Gunter,

I saw the photo of your good self at Derby and it's great to put a face to your name now.
Your armies are massive, fantastic and a credit to you.
Good luck with your dice when wargaming with them, unfortunately I don't think there were any Saxon's at Waterloo in 1815, but I suppose you could lead the Prussian's onto the field in 2015.

Best Wishes,

Ray.
