Victrix Napoleonic Officers

Well I think I've overcome a "painter's block" - I recently finished an Old Glory damaged building that should work from 18th C. up to at least WW2. I'll post some pictures later.

The main effort recently completed were four mounted Victrix officers - 2 French & 2 British. The horses are very nicely sculpted. I think they look like larger scale sculpts - reminiscent of 54mm.

Here is how they look:
These should be "proper" Big Men for Sharp Practice. Have a trial game this coming Saturday.

  1. Very nice! Are they metal, or plastic? The French seem particularly special.

    Thanks. Those are metal - same as their "limited" figs - the French porte-fanion guy & the sappers for both French & British. Warm regards, Dean

    Mate I have to say that I am very impressed with your painting. I can not understand why more people have not written more comments?
