Well it's been over a year since I have done any painting on my classic Napoleonics. So this morning I dug out some figures and got them ready to go.
I have had some original HH Prussians Grenadiers for a while but not enough for a full 24 figure unit. However I have been fortunate to be given a bag of 30 DK versions. The DK figures are not as crisp as originals and are slightly smaller.
The original figures have been painted to a reasonable standard so and I have decided to do a paint restoration rather than a full strip and paint.
I will use 8 of the DK figures and will paint these to match the repaints. I will make one of these into a standard bearer. I am not sure if I will do a hand painted standard or use a printed one.
For the drummer I will use a Lamming figure I got with the painted Hintons. He will get a paint restoration.
Welcome back to the Shiny Side... :o)
I've sent you a slightly cheeky email.
There are half a dozen DKs in my Garde zu Fuss battalion, but I’d be hard pressed to say which ones. This will be a splendid unit!
These should look splendidly martial once complete.
Shiny is good for you 😁
All the best. Aly
Hard to go wrong with those enormous Prussian Garde plumes! I'm sure they will turn out beautifully shiny!
Looking forward to seeing the completed unit!
They will look rather special I think. Those plumes certainly make a statement.
