Napoleon & Cie

Posted by raph86 on 17 Jun 2021, 21:57

Hello,
I started to paint a Napoleon's staff from schilling miniature and here is the result.

Image

Junot, Mortier, Grouchy

Image

Napoléon, Gouvion Saint-Cyr, Murat, Castella

https://www.schilling-figuren.de/produk ... he-epoche/

They are put on a rod and trimmed for the next layer by Vallejo.
Sepia wash and dry brushing of white.
Vallejo flesh colour with darkote flesh from citadel.

General Junot

Marechal Grouchy

Image

Marechal Mortier

Image

Marechal Murat

Image

Image

Général Castella

Image

General Gouvion Saint Cyr

I think I'm done with this Napoleonic staff.
I'm happy with the global result even if after the pictures, I find that some figures have too dark skin like Grouchy...

Lovely stuff. How did you achieve the gold detail on the turnbacks and tassels of the Murat figure?

With a brush and paint! :mrgreen: ;-)

Joking aside, I used 3 Citadel gold paints from darkest to lightest and brighter.
Before the last drybrush with the very shiny gold I passed a Citadel nul oil wash.
I did the same for each figure.

However, the figures are very large...

Those are very nice figures finely painted. And I think its fine for generals to be a bit larger than life! You certainly want them larger than Napoleon... ;-)

The technique worked very well. I do not have Citadel paints, but if I did, I would try it myself.

Yes but since there are tons of figures in the meantime. You always have to collect the ones that match your needs for a special project.
