North and Greys Regiment look very good indeed here Rich. Your painting is to a very high standard, and I very much like the way that you are using the poses in the Strelets British infantry sets to create a realistic firing line, three ranks deep. Great work!

Here is North's Regiment in platoon fire outside the village of Blenheim. Needless to say, I am loving the Strelets WSS range. Everything else I had (Boer War, Zulu War, Lord of the Rings) has gone right to the back of the painting queue for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for looking.

Sure enough, it didn't need to be said, Rich. :tongue:

It's true that the Strelets WSS figures are great ones, but your exquisite paint job elevates them to a higher level. :love: :love: :love:

Fantastic work. :thumbup:

Quality of paint job and color choice?

Impressive.

Volume of figures produced?

Very impressive.

I like the faces, too.

As you ask me they must have a fantastic stock of red paint over the channel! :mrgreen:

Excellent work Rich and I like those bases! :thumbup:

More wonderful work Rich, well done!

The three rank firing line formations that you are modelling here look just right, as does the great paint-work on the figures. I'd say that you have pretty much perfected the art of painting these Strelets WoSS British infantry figures. In doing so, you have set a standard for us others to try to follow!

I can see that, after a summer of 'go slow' on the painting front I'll have to get back to the studio and complete some WoSS units.

PS: The aerial view you have posted seems to slow large unit bases with possible inter-locking wavy lines? Is there a design-intent behind this?

Really impressive work although I wonder if the files would have been a little closer?

Your work is brilliant and the faces bring them to life.

The output of Stretlets is magnificent and you do them more than justice with your units.

Best wishes,

Chris

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. Considering the high quality of all your outputs, all your praise is very much appreciated.

Chris-yes I'm sure the ranks should be closer! But then I'd have to paint more figures to fill the bases up...!

Mark-the bases are Sarrissa Precision bases, the idea being that they all interlock and come in different sizes so can be joined together in different ways (designed for wargaming terrain?), but I just use them as they seem practical enough.

A fantastic project. So nice to see the figures you paint and what you created with the Strelets sets. I also agree with Chris concerning the closer ranks but if it works for you than it is the benchmark.

I am looking forward to see more units from you.

It's been a while since I posted as I've been busy getting married and honeymooning! But I'm back to reality of life again and have some more figures finished!

Here is the French Regiment Navarre, one of the regiments who defended the village of Blenheim/Blindheim. When I get around to it, I'll try and base/model them as attempting to 'break out' (unsuccessfully) of the village towards the end of the battle.

Congratulations on getting married, Rich ! I hope things went well in this 'only just post-pandemic' world we are living in right now.

I can imagine that juggling arrangements for a wedding etc will have made even a small amount of modelling/painting almost impossible to fit in, but you have done a fine job on these figures representing the Regiment of Navarre. Although the figures are not yet based, the way you have laid them out gives a good impression of a 'breakout attempt' from Blenheim village. Well done!

You did what? Married? Without asking us? Manman you're really looking for trouble! Or with us or with your beloved woman! :mrgreen: :joker:

I want to say two more things:

1. I wish you a long and happy marriage! :love:

2. And a lot of figures to paint as good as the ones you show us here! ;-)

Thank you all. It has been a chaotic couple of months, so glad to be back to something slightly more relaxing for a few hours a week! I'll post some dragoons photos soon!

Mark, are you going to be adding your excellent Duke of Marlborough photos to your thread on this forum? I often turn to your WSS thread for inspiration so it's handy to have them all in the same place!!!

I think Strelets have done an excellent job of this set and I've enjoyed painting them. These dragoons are from the Mestre De Camp General regiment, one of the squadrons defending the village of Blenheim/Blindheim.
