Befreiungskriege 1813-14

Painting and modelling 28mm Napoleonic wargaming miniatures

And just a little bit more…

Landwehr figure w-i-p Just short painting session yesterday to get the second figure of the current w-i-p pair up to the same stage as the first figure. So this chap’s face is done and he now has all his red provincial facings and I opted for light blue for his neck scarf. I’m pleased with the result though it doesn’t show up too clearly in this picture. I’ve also started on his trousers with the first two layers of grey: VMC neutral grey and VMC light grey. These will be finished off with Foundry arctic grey and Foundry white. And after that, of course, they’ll get the mud treatment!

    Nice work there so far, Martin.

    Although I could not bear it myself to coat my figures liberally with mud, no matter how authentic it may be!

    How much time do you spend on painting a figure, on average? I have stuff which, I am ashamed to say, have been “work in progress” for months!

    Now that’s a tough question to answer because I don’t ever time it or do I paint one figure at a time and nor to I sit down and do a figure from start to finish in one session. I reckon it has to be several hours per figure on average in the way I currently work. I wish I could reduce that somehow but I think I have to accept it for the present given work commitments, a wife, two daughters and a couple of cats to keep happy.
