Impressive what you do with Hät figures.
A high quality of detail. Only the uniform is for my taste a bit dark. But maybe the artillery get darker uniforms.
Placing the pose of figures is logical and not pressed on a too small plate.

The grey blue "wheled vehicles" are fine paint.
Also the tread is done.
And some brass beside the gun.

:yeah:

Do you own the Hät French WWI early war infantry set too ?

I like your painting and the new figures. I regret only that we will probably wait still months or years to see the set in shops. Haet became the slowest contemporary set-producer. 2 new sets every year will have the consequence that we will see them hopefully christmas 2018!

Not my period, but as usual I like your painting. My favourite pose is the riding officer with the greycoat!

Awesome artillery scene. Great job painting up those marginal Hatt figures. I did a similar project using Retrokit's gun and crew. They are colorful uniforms for WW1. KUTGW!

Very good paintng and presentation.
I am also surprised by the dark blue colour, but then I privilege artistic choices to "historic Truth".
The early guys are so "net" / clean. This although, with the exception of certain days de Grande Offensive, casuality rates were highest.
Thanks for your contribution
