Front Rank Pavlovsk Grenadiers - Completed

Well I broke down and used a hair dryer to speed up the Minwax drying time - it seems to have worked as the Testors Dullcote is pretty flat. Added some highlights to the green coat, as well as a little black-lining around the chest straps. The mitre plates and bayonets were dry-brushed with gold and silver - just to make them a little shiny again.
My buddy will be giving me some Foundry Russian Cuirassiers in exchange for painting a few figures for him. Hopefully, they won't be too small next to the Front Rank guys. Eventually I'll also add either some Warlord Games or Old Glory 2nd Edition line infantry - or wait for the Perry plastics.
In the meantime, these guys will hang out in their barracks and let the British fight the French.

  10. Thank you all for the kind comments! Truly appreciated.

    I do plan to slowly add more units for a Russian contingent. Hopefully they'll be able to join my buddy's growing Prussian army for a joint endeavor against the evil French - 1813-14 stuff. Or a smaller 1812 Russian Campaign scenario on their own.

    Thanks again, Dean

  13. So nice, it's a shame they have to sit in the cabinet and wait for a battle.

  14. Those FR Pavlovs are great - an iconic Ruski unit for any Napoleonic collection. The flat varnish and highlights really give a nice finish to the unit.

    Cheers,
    Doc
