Re: Re: crimean war

Waterloo 1815 Bersgalieri well EXCUSE ME WHILE I SPIT.

THE hATS ARE PATHETIC under scaled AND THESE ARE HARD FIGURES FOR THE PAINT TO ADHERE TO.

I advise you use conversions or sit it out for Strelets to make some decent ones.

Re: Re: Re: crimean war

Hi Hank,

what problem do you have with the Waterloo guys?
Beside the dancing flag-bearer they are looking not too bad for me.

I've painted them as Bersaglieri (the uniform can be used for the Crimea), Roumaninan light infantry for 1877 and without the feathers as Mexican imperial infantry in red.

cheers

Thank you, Zsolt for the most interesting link! :-)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: crimean war

Hi Zsolt,

oh, ACW again

Forget your thoughts, the 39th New Yorkers had the old Piemontese uniform with Frock coat like in 1836 not the new one

Ok, guys especially the ACW freaks, proof me that I am wrong with this...

cheers

MEN WITHOUT HATS

the plastic lip on the hat is too small to paint hilight.Looks more like a bowler hat(chuckle).The feathered hat only at a certain angle resembles the hat which should have been stressed more as the main distinguyishing feature of the uniform but Its almost obscured.Paint disappointedly runs off...
