My own army!

Just a small post. And only two figures! These figures were actually painted for a duel on Benno's Figures Forum. But for some reason the duel never took place. So I decided that it was time that I show them here.

The figures are from the Hat 8252 French Light Infantry Chasseur Command set. A review of the figures can be seen here on Plastic Soldier Review.


The rules for this duel were sort of:
- Two Napoleonic Figures
- Painted in your own colours
- Based
- With flag


The main colours I used for these figures are purple and yellow for the jacket, green for the trousers, red for the straps. Then some silver and black to finish them. The flag is a bit with the same colours, made of a paperprint.

In fact it was fun painting these, because of "not historical" at all! Just playing with some colours and that's it! I might do some more in the future, when I'm in the mood for it!

I hope you like them.

  14. A great idea.

  15. I like these, good work. And chances are they could be historical as the French, and other armies, were forced to cloth their troops in "cloth of local manufacture."

    One of the reasons I paint Napoleonics is for the spectacle on the tabletop.
