I took four Waterloo 1815 figures and removed their backpacks and replaced them with pouches. They have painted up okay, but as I am finding with this project, the varnish is turning them glossy. I still haven't decided if that is how I will leave them, but it is good enough for now.
A poor attempt an arty shot using an uncharacteristically cloudy sky for Perth.
An unintentional "wet look" to the ground.
It's a bit more noticeable in this photo and the following ones, but I did a bad job on the gun elevation, made worse by the scenic effect on the basing as the wheels are indented, but the trail slightly elevated by the plaster I used to build up the base.
I like the pose of the guy looking hopefully out into the distance while the ball is more likely to bury itself six feet under just a few yards in front of him.
The guns are detachable. A style which produces a few loose cannon.
This last photo was taken using a flash, the rest are all natural light.
While I am still thinking up the best way to show unit status etc, it never hurts to have a few casualty markers and so, using the trusty Airfix set, I painted up these three. The fallen jager is the companion headswap to the officer I did for the Belgian infantry.
