Foundry Napoleonic Infantry - Completed

So here they are - given a wash of Minwax Tudor Satin stain followed by Testor's Dullcote.
Six small units ranging from 6 to 9 figures; enough for Sharp Practice groups. As I mentioned previously, these were part of a trade from a very generous TMP member. He said he would never get around to painting them so basically gave them to me along with some mounted figures that I plan to start on next. Here are some shots of the individual units:

Bavarians - painted as belonging to the Preysing Regiment.
Kingdom of Italy, 5th Line Regiment.
Neuchatel Battalion Voltigueurs.
Hungarians in early headgear (except for the officer).
Austrians with later shakos.
Russian Jaegers in forage caps. These are the only figures that I added highlights to after the stain - just to the green areas.
In addition to finishing these guys today, I was happy to have helped my buddy with some Wargames Factory Persians cavalry. Just a small unit that he'll use at Adepticon next week. Tomorrow several of us are having our fourth Dark Age Campaign game at the Game Matrix. I'm taking my Thematic Byzantines (actually Norman and other figures pretending to be Thematics).


  1. They are really beautiful!

    Great work, Dean!

  2. These are exquisitely done; the colour on the Hungarians is wonderful. Great work Dean.

  3. Absolutely amazing Dean. Just fantastic!!

  4. Thank you very much for the kind comments! The uniforms of this era are so varied and colorful. Best, Dean

  5. Great work!
    Neuchatel regiment is my favourite...

  6. Cracking work Dean, well done.


  7. Thanks again, everyone, for the great comments. Warm regards, Dean

  8. That's an amazing group of models.

  9. Truly inspirational painting.

  10. Howzit Dean

    Brilliant painting once again - really like the von Preysig's ('Pretty In Pink'!) and the Neuchatel boys in particular. The highlighting on the Russian jaeger's green really makes them 'pop' visually. Great job all round!
