Seven Years War Zinnfiguren

Over on the AMG forum I was discussing gaming with Flats. Well as a result I decided to paint a unit of Prussian Grenadiers. 

I bought these figures from Fechner a while back but only painted a few as a tester.  

Well I have almost finished a unit, a few highlights to the faces needed, before basing them on a single 10 by 5cm bases.

This unit is the 17/22 Puttkamer Grenadiers.

This photo shows are thin these chaps are. 

I made a few mistakes and learnt a few tricks and I hope to get get these finished and based over the weekend.

I have some more Grenadiers and some Austrian Cuirassier to paint.  

I can see me doing some more of these.

I must admit I've been always tempted by 'flats' - the figures look great , Tony

Nice looking brushwork.

Nice paint job Mark. I have always liked flats, but they need to be tackled in a totally different way from les rondes.

Agreed. It is always amazing how good lats look. Eager to see more as and when you finish them.

Best Regards,

First class job. Well done

I really like the way you have painted these flats.
I hope you continue with this project. Small units based on one base, visually works.

Funny, that's almost exactly how I'm basing my own.

I do like these Mark. Inspires me to get back to my own.
