A very late, but sincere welcome back! And what a comeback! Great as before, maybe even a bit better!

Some of the best painted figures I have seen in this scale.
You are indeed a master painter.
Thanks for sharing and keep them coming!

Impeccable is the first word that comes to mind when I see your work Chen. Beautifully smooth colours that are well chosen and exceptionally rendered.
An absolute joy for the eye to see.

I agree with all the comments above. What comes to my mind is: masterpiece.
I would love to paint like that. You've just entered my Pantheon of Inspiration :-D :mrgreen: :shock:

I don't want to be less than others in congratulating you, chen. Those Prussians are amazingly painted. I especially love the mounted officers. :love: :notworthy: :love: :notworthy: :love: :notworthy:

The clarity you have achieved on the details like straps, plumes, and buttons is truly enviable.

The technique you have displayed for faces is also an impressive achievement.

Thanks a lot for all your nice comments, gents! They mean a great encouragement for me to keep working on this project. As you might have imagined, painting lots of napoleonic Prussians is quite a painful task, since all the regiments have similar uniforms... :lol:
Fortunately the Prussians are about to be finished very soon. I've painted about 150 of them to form 4 brigades, and that would be enough for my wargame of the battle near Mockern.

During the last weekend I've just finished some Austrian Grenzers of Peterswardeiner regiment. They are to be used in the Sellerhausen scenario as an 'aftermath side show' for our major battle around Mockern. BTW It's my first ever time to paint any Austrians, so I thought I'd start with some colourful ones. :-D

I fully agree. Your talents are mind-blowing. I really love your Prussians. I am painting them for a similar project but will never reach your level.
