Hill and Orange

Completed two Corps commanders for my Napoleon's Battles Waterloo army.  Lord Hill uses Battle Honors figures and the Prince of Orange uses AB Miniatures.  For the ABs I drilled out the reins, but apart from that the figures are as they came.

Getting a nice dark shade of blue was a challenge.

The Prince is a one piece casting.

The aide (actually a hussar officer) accompanying the Prince was used to test out some more blues, most notably on the portemanteau which I painted a number of different ways, including using a white base coat.

An orange highlight to the red coat gives it more of an officer's scarlet look, but the burgundy shade I used for the sash didn't provide a very distinctive crimson colour, but it will do.

    1. Thanks. It has been suggested I need to improve on my tufts :-)

    1. Thanks Carlo. Makes me wonder why I'm dabbling with 6mm at the moment.

      But stay tuned - I've just acquired a 28mm army for Saga, complete with botanicals.

  3. Wonderful - the Prince of Orange in particular!

    1. Thanks - I did the Prince of Orange in 1/72nd at the same time and very similar pose. Will post comparison shot when he is back from Waterloo.
