Italeri British Infantry 1815

Posted by raph86 on 19 Sep 2020, 22:07

here is half of a bunch from the Italeri box ref 6095 British Infantry 1815
I tried my hand at painting English soldiers and I'm not unhappy with the result, it remains to be seen if you'll like it ;)
Very pleasant to paint even if there are some places almost without detail due to the moulding.
They are very well engraved which facilitates the colouring not like the French Zvezda acrobats...
Here are some pictures.
I am waiting as always for your advice and opinions ;)



Thank you for your attention

Advice: none.
Opinion: Those look great!
I’m very familiar with this set, having painted a few. I think they are a fine bunch of figures and you have done a terrific job! Well done!

I agree with everything Bill said. I would add their crossed belts form almost a union jack on the front of their uniforms.

I like them... and I like what you did with single bases on first pictures.

Only suggestion would have been to make the officer's trousers a slightly different color compared to the rest of the men, as they would have likely been made from higher quality materials.

Overall, though, they look great!
