French Column taking fire

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

French Column taking fire

Post by valleyboy » Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:04 pm

Have done something daft :lol:
Despite a large collection in 15mm those pesky Perrys have dangled too many temptations before me and I've started a 28mm French army. I've just completed my first unit :roll:

In the end I based the casualty group on a gaming base twice its usual width or 6 figures wide rather than 3 and extended the depth a little to allow for the prone figures

That's brilliant! Some very clever (if gory!) animation. Atmospheric photo's as well.

Well done valleyboy. :D
