6mm Napoleonics are a joy to paint. It’s really that simple and the constant demand for them ensures that I get lots of practice! Currently there is still part of a British Peninsular army in progress and I hate to admit that throughout many years of painting I still haven’t has a chance to paint up an army for myself, though I think the Spanish might be quite an enjoyable prospect. In this post however I’m putting up some finished Hussars and yet more Line Infantry.
I also recently treated myself to an Honourable Eclipse Company battle group consisting of bombers, airships and a HUGE airship! Very lovely models although there were a few bubbles that needed filling, mainly the bubbles were on the tips of the bombs but since these face downwards I decided to chill out and ignore them (after all, I’m not going to be mounting them upside down!).
Here’s a teaser test model for my colour scheme, a Hades Class Small Flier, I’m quite pleased and think I’ll roll out this scheme across the fleet. Needs a bit more work on the glass though. This model was also my first experiment with Vallejo Washes, and they seem very pleasant to use indeed.
Next on the list are the other 4 members of this squadron and some 6mm Napoleonic Portuguese Infantry (as well as British) which will be a nice change.
Currently reliving my misspent youth listening to Elastica and Eels, huzzah!
