...men are selected for the new fangled Light Companies ~
For the frontier look I wanted when I rebased the F&IW collection I've been adding more than my usual tuft or two to these bases of Light Company figures, as indeed for the Grenadiers also, in the form of larger clumps and weeds, though carefully avoiding the 'cottage garden in bloom' look. The MDF bases are from Warbases of course whilst the rocks and base texture are by Woodlands Scenics, via Arcane in Nottingham.
Next to teach the head of the painting queue are the French Compagnies Franches de la Marine, using figures from Redoubt Enterprises once more. They are having to be patient though, as I'm off for some much needed R&R in Cornwall next week. Don't despair though, no chance of blog withdrawal symptoms for you dear reader, two further entries in the can for later!
They look great David and nice to see a non-cottage garden look to the basing. Shame about the lack of customer service, which is why I stick with Pendraken for my 10mm stuff as theirs is second to none. Have a great break and fingers crossed for the weather (and traffic!).ReplyDelete
Thank you SteveJ, I shall do my best! Traffic on the M5 though is a given...Delete
Those really look the part. Indeed a shame about the blot on the copy book. Bon voyage, have a good breakReplyDelete
Thanks Phil! I was disappointed I have to say, but hardly surprised. I'm not looking forward to encountering the M5 tomorrow though...🚙🚗🛻🏍️🚐🚌🚛Delete
They look great David. Unfortunate about the lack of customer service. Good luck on the trip!ReplyDelete
Thanks Christopher, sad to have had to mention the lack of service, but it grates with me.Delete
I do like that unit, nice job. Enjoy your trip.ReplyDelete
Thank you George! Rest assured I shall be doing my best!Delete
A nice looking unit, nothing like a bit of variety on the table top. CheersReplyDelete
Thanks for the endorsement Stuart!Delete
A lovely looking unit David…ReplyDelete
I like the non- Chelsea Flower Show look on the bases…
I’ve always tried to keep to shades of green, I find it shows off the miniatures better…
Enjoy your break…
All the best. Aly
Thank you Aly, I was pleased with the frontier not in bloom look so it's nice to have your endorsement.Delete
I'm sure the second hand bookshops of Cornwall are already rubbing their hands with glee and the thought of your imminent arrival Mr.B.ReplyDelete
Plus having just driven the M5 to and from a very sunny Devon on what are usually considered the "quieter" times of day and week I wish you luck!
I shall endeavour to sniff a bargain book or three this week! The journey down was remarkably easy, no hold ups at all, had time to stop for lunch and for shopping and were still early!Delete
