Here are a mixture of French Grenadiers and regular infantry. I could not find any exact details about grenadier hats, so I just copied the box art...

Very nice. The close ups stand up very well - I agree that you managed the red white piping very well. And I can't believe you are painting the eyes!! :shock:

Here are some long awaited reinforcements for the French. I have tried a new method with my painting. I used to to do all the base coats etc and then paint a wash over everything. I might then dry brush a little. For jackets, trousers etc I'm now trying to paint the base layer, then add a dark wash, then add a highlight with a lighter shade over larger parts of the clothing.. Unfortunately my photos don't really show this up very well, but I'm pleased with the results as they do look better than she comparing these with the ones I did a few months ago.

Thanks for looking.

Nice work! You really make them come alive.
Have been working on the same Strelets WSS for my imagination project. As these were my first 1/72 soft plastic figs, I must say I enjoy working on them a lot.

Lovely addition! I can see the appeal of the Lace Wars figures.

It appears that you have put quite a thick coat of flesh-colored paint on the faces. Either that, or the sculpting on the faces is pretty bad.

I would be curious to learn which it is.

These are a good range of figures, so any faults or loss of detail is certainly through my own painting!
