    Is there any way of expanding the images within the gallery?
    I love to see close ups of the way in which you achieve the fantastic finish-it keeps me experimenting to try to emulate it

    Looking good, Martin – very eager to see the completed battalion!


  5. Great idea Martin.

    What I’m looking forward to seeing in the Gallery is a Lieb Hussar or two! 8O)

    Hi Martin,

    The gallery is a great idea, and am looking forward to seeing it grow. I have a query that I hope you can help me with. As you know i’m painting my Westphalian landwehr at the moment. Am a bit stuck on the drummers er ‘drum’ colours. Would it be the same as the line, with red hoops or provinicial coloured hoops or teeth?


  8. Martin said

    @Dinium: I checked my sources and asked a couple of experts about drum hoops for you. The regulations were for ones with red and white teeth though there were examples that didn’t follow this.

    @Everybody else: thanks for the encouraging words. That’ll help me to keep going!

    Thank you very much for helping me out Martin. I’ve seen some reenactor pics with a variety of different schemes but red/white teeth it shall be. I can crack on with me drummer now (albeit slowly!).

    Keep up the great paintwork on those Kurmark boys.



  10. Glad to see you have introduced a gallery. Now we need some “in your face” close ups please! You always paint your figures in a bright and eyecatching style.

    I really must paint some Prussians one day.

    Very nice painting Martin. I’ve just acquire a lot of Calpe figures and was looking for uniformology on the net and found this site. My intention is to paint up Von Bulow’s Corp. for Waterloo.
