As promised, here you can see first pictures of the Hanoverian infantryman http://flowersinyourcannons.blogspot.de/
And, yes, I started a blog just because of the BFFFP. More pictures will come, meanwhile I manage to improve the white balancing. :lol:

In the meantime half of the figures of this project are here at my home. So yesterday I assembled them for a test arrangement. Here are some pictures to give you an impression:

The whole dio will be 1,60m x 1m. That was the exact result of this arrangement. One could think that the figures on the list are quite few in number but in my eyes even the half of the finall strengh is a lot.

So I am looking forward to get the other figures here.

And if there are still some friends here who want to jump on the train:

These figures are still available:

Napoleons Army of the North

Odemars French / one figure pressing against the gate of Hougoumont

SHQ Line Infantry voltigeur bugler


Anglo-Netherlands Army

British – Wagon
NR-BR01 Westfalia / Schilling
http://www.schilling-figuren.de/product ... cts_id=685

Art Miniatures Wellington
http://www.schmaeling.de/napoleonische- ... keiten.php

Newline Brunswick Cavalry Lancers

Hagen Dutch Carabiniers


Prussian Army of the Lower Rhine

Newline Dragoons

Newline Artillery / Gunner and a piece

Fine Scale Factory: Prussian Ammunition-Caisson or Baggage-Wagon

Art Miniatures Blücher

I will try Predrag!. Pascall: Your Frenchman will be the lightning star of the battlefield; BECAUSE you paint him even if you did never paint Napoleonic figures. That is great!

Mr. Andrea, in order to post pictures on this Forum,you must open an account with tinypic or Photobucket.I use tinypic,because you can place as many pictures you like there for free. Once you open your account. Name & Password required of course, you can place your photos there after clicking on "Browse",that will take you onto your photo files on your P C. Then click on your file of choice,then the picture you want to place,and it will be arrive on say tinypics. OK? Then simply go to the box [ IMG Code for Forums and Message Boards ] ,and left click onto it, a box will appear and you then right click on Copy. Go to the Forum,and open a Topic,and paste your picture. I hope you find this helpful. I remember how I struggled with the same problem of posting pictures. BB

As ordered from MABO, I have also painted a few figs.
I wanted to paint the Belgian soldier (the right one) with the face of Peter. :-D
But I have failed. :oops:

not necessary because Mr Andrea has a blog : you just have to copy the url of the picture in the blog and then :[img]"url"[/img] ! :-D
same for linking the blog : [url]"blog adress"[/url]
That's what I've done ! :tongue:
