French Girl Power!

Gentlemen, in this post I present you some nice ladies, who stood their man in the Napoleonic Wars. The scene contains six infantry figures and four artillery ones. The figures are produced by 3D Model Studios. They are metal figures and very well sculpted. The size of the figures is a bit big for 1/72 scale, but we can say that to from a company like Zvezda. And as they are all used here in this diorama, there isn't any problem.

I made this little diorama for the painting competition at the FIGZ in Arhnem this year. I didn't win a prize with it but I had a lot of fun painting these figures and making the diorama. The redoubt, cannonballs and barrel is from Italeri. The little campfire is from Art Miniaturen.

The whole scene.

The infantry.

Three marching/standing figures.





Command figures.

The artillery.



Lifting cannonballs is heavy work.

What do we see?

Now, what was I supposed to do?

If I'm only good for cleaning, I could have stayed home!

She's still looking for the enemy.


A couple more random pictures!








I hope you like it!
