yesterday i have started the prussian attack against Plancenoit to support General Picton (see old Plancenoit thread).
My prussian artillery is still "working" there...
And now my prussian landwehr Battalion is going into battle. :guardsman:
Just a little bit fun....during bad corona time.. :mask:
They are fantastic! So are the Artillery you mentioned.
That background works great, what manufacturer are those backdrops if you dont mind me asking?
Ive had a look at a few model railway ones but ones ive seen are either completely wrong terrain for the 1815 Belgian countryside or way too modern.
Very nice indeed.
Presumably these are from the 5th Westphalian Brigade, destination the Plancenoit church.
The backdrop and photography are excellent.
Personally, I think the drums should be brass not white but the unit does look good.
you're absolutely right.
The drums are made of brass. When I painted them, I was too fast. I had already painted the ribbons of the drum when I realized that only the white primer had been applied. And because painting the tapes made so much effort, I was just too lazy to correct it.
I made many images of the original area around Waterloo, Plancenoit and Ligny during my weekend-tours. I´ve used a panasonic camera with panorama-function, which works excellent. But the problem is to print such a VERY LONG picture on DIN A-Format-Paper...
But a friend could help me, who is a civil engineer. In his construction office they have a special printer for colored building plans. That was quite expensive... a lot of color toner.. :scream:
Well that hard work ( & colour toner!!) in producing those backgrounds has certainly paid off as they are excellent and they complement your figures perfectly. Fantastic work.
They look marvellous! Excellent painting and presentation of these figures. Lovely to see.
I thank you for the praise.
I am constantly building up my Landwehr unit. First it was only a group, then a company, now a battalion. It takes a lot of time to paint a large unit.
By the way, I have a small picture puzzle built into the photos.
Who sees the small difference? :nerd_face:
The smoke not in the second picture?
Outstanding work! Those pictures look like photographs.
Dear Gerd, they are absolutely fantastic - see you in Plancenoit!
James is the winner...
Wavre is burnig in the background....but not on the second image.. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :+1:
Excellent work on these very good figures. Impressively staged troops in an appealing setting. The scene composition is harmonious and convincing, a real feast for the eyes. :+1:
Thanks to Strelets, we now receive ever more reasonable sets for troops that brought Napoleon down in numerous & costly battles.
Hoping for many more Russian, Austro-Hungarian, Prussian & “smaller“ states sets regarding the crucial 1812-15 campaigns. :relaxed:
