1e Batallion, 1e Légère

Oh yeah, here’s that quick Napoleonic update I promised you:

Plastic models with a metal command by Perry Miniatures.

As said, the second battalion would go a bit quicker – it certainly did, having been completed in less than a month in just two batches. More greatcoated infantrymen meant less fiddly bits to be painted white, after all.

There you go, that’s another battalion done. I’ll add some flags from Flags of War in the future, but I’m trying to claw together a bit of cash for some upgrades to my computer.

Next up for my Napoleonics: Jérome Bonaparte!

    Beautiful unit! I like the variation you achieved and the paintjob is very nice, too. The basing finally rounds it all off and is not too obtrusive/ distracts from the miniatures. My favourite is the drummer. A very characterful sculpt, enhanced through your attention to detail.

      I’m really happy that you’ve noticed the variation within the unit as I’ve been experimenting with different colours for the greatcoated models, without letting it affect the amount of time per batch of models. My first two battalions just had grey greatcoats, whereas these two new units have five different greatcoat colours. Thank you for your comment!
