Calpe French paint previews
Posted by Martin on June 15, 2011
Peter F. often draws on the advice and opinions of a close circle of wargaming and figure painting friends when preparing a new batch of sculpts. In return, the members of this coterie sometimes receive free samples of the first castings out of the production moulds. And the early fruits of the French infantry are no exception to this rule.
Given that I’ve only painted one test fusilier that I haven’t had a chance to photograph yet and only just started a on four-pack of the grenadiers, I’m delighted to say that I can share photos of some of these figures painted by other “Friends of Calpe Towers”. So, for your enjoyment, I present a selection of pictures of painted Calpe French infantry which, in due course, will also make their way on to the Calpe Miniatures website. Credit for the painting in the first two pictures goes to Steve Maughan of The Napoleonic Archive, the third picture features the brushwork of Peter Royle and the last two pictures are from the fair hand of Peter F. himself and will adorn the French infantry page on the Calpe Miniatures website when we make it live.
Thanks to all concerned for providing the photos. If this lot doesn’t whet your appetite, I don’t know what will!
