Now Maitland, now's your time!

Well, that was a fun holiday by the seaside, but now I'm back and have finsihed the basing on Maitland's Guards brigade. I have even added cords to the flagpoles using some fine copper wire: Here is a shor from the side, showing the troops ranked up:

...and a view from behind, to complete the base.

Finally, here is anpther photo of the 5th brigade, now I have added cords and tidied up the base edge (using GW Dark Flesh).


Cameron highlanders next...
cheers

One of the nicest looking wargames units I have seen (in any scale) for a long time.

Not my scale (I am an old 1/72-20 mm fan) but nice figures and bases instead!
Thanks for sharing!

Simply amazing. I cannot believe that these are 6mm. You are truly talented.

Not a lot more I can say really. Quite stunning. Back to my Austrians for a re paint I think. Cannot wait to see the cavalry.

Awesome stuff. Just stumbled into the "6mm experience", so it's quite unbelievable for me to see what you've achieved here. Top notch!

Hey there! I've just come across this blog and the painting is at an incredible standard! I particularly like the very clever method of basing these figures.

I wondered if you would do a step by step painting guide for the 6mm figures? My Dad is just starting to get into this but has never painted this scale before. It would be extremely helpful!

Consul, If you search back through the blog to January 2008 there is a series of entries showing how to paint and base 6mm napoleonics (Austrians in this case).
