Command Stands for Black Powder & Hail Caesar

Okay, most of these figures were painted some time ago, but I finally decided to have them based as Command Stands for Black Powder and Hail Caesar. The overall army Generals are on 60mm Litko rounds - two mounted figures per base, and the Brigade/Division Commanders are on 50mm Litko rounds - one mounted and several foot per.
Here are the French and British Army General stands.
They're all Front Rank figures except for the British General in Hussar attire - he's a North Star sculpt by Copplestone.
Next up, the French Brigade Commanders - the mounted figures are Victrix, save one Foundry officer in Bardin Regulation. The foot figures are Victrix and Front Rank figures.
Now the British Brigade Commanders - all Victrix figures; both mounted and foot.
Finally, here is the Army General command stand for a French Hundred Years War army. A Perry Joan of Arc and an Old Glory figure carrying Joan's Battle Standard.
The standard was a graphic file sent to me by a kind TMPer a long time ago after I posted a query about the standard.
Apologies for this gratuitous post of old figures, but I'm pleased with the way they turned out. First time using Army Painter grass tufts; really easy to use and adds a nice touch. Samurai and Choson Korean command stands will follow.

  6. Fantastic work. I always like doing command stands as it's fun to add all the extra details that might become tiresome to do for a full unit. I do vary the size of the base to denote rank (bigger = higher)

  18. How did I miss this delicious smorgasbord?

    I love every one, especially the killer tartan. This makes me wonder, how long have you been at this hobby that you have such a deep and lojavascript:void(0)vely bench? ;-)

  19. Dean: Your "...slowed down painting..." mode is everyone else's Overdrive! :)
    Seriously, you are a phenomenal painter, no matter how many figures your crank out. Your miniatures are worthy of museum dioramas.

  20. Thanks for the kind words.

    @ Monty: I actually started painting wargame figures from about 2006 - with bursts in production for a couple of years in between then and now. To be honest, I've recently slowed down painting - probably only bits here and there. Warm Regards, Dean
