Zinnfiguren for Imaginations

I have had a itch for some time to paint some SYW German Zinnfiguren for use as Imaginations

The photo below shows what can be achieved.

With my birthday coming up I have finally taken the plunge and placed a small order from 

I have ordered enough of the figure 10/25 to start a flat version f the Erbprinz plus a few cavalry figures

Good luck with painting your flats.

I've always found them too daunting for diminishing skills.

This is going to be good. Really look forward to seeing what you make of this, Mark.

It's not a good trend that connoisseur shading jobs have become the standard that more than a few good painters don't feel they can measure up to. To all those who find the prospect of painting flats daunting, I say - don't.

Forget about contest caliber masterpieces, paint them to please yourself. A battalion or squadron of flats painted as you'd paint any other wargames figures will look just fine, shaded or not.

Mark, have been tempted by german flats for the late nineteenth century where round 28mm figures are few and far between. Do you have any advice about basing up units eg arrangement, numbers of figures and so on when using flats? Might make a nice blog post in itself.
Fantastic blog by the way.

Take a look at this site for flat wargaming inspiration.
You will have to go back a couple of pages.
