Epic Scale Napoleonic British Infantry

Posted by Rich W on 06 Aug 2022, 18:37

I decided to go very off topic from my WSS mission and try something a little different. I ended up with a sprue of the Warlord Games British Infantry and thought 'why not'...I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed painting these figures, I thought they would be too small and it's not an era/uniforms I've tried before. The detail on these figures is really good and if I were to try wargaming, I think this would be the perfect way of doing it. Any feedback on how I could improve these next time is very welcome!

Looks real good Rich! :thumbup:

Now and then you have to leave your comfort zone and do something different! That's good! ;-) :thumbup:

For that scale it is very neatly and precisely painted.

I second that. I like the faces and the shading in general.

Thanks for sharing those, Rich. I agree with the others, you have done a fantastic job. I was curious about the scale (the Internet tells me 13.5, a unique scale by Warlord) which makes for an interesting gaming scale. I have often thought that if I was starting fresh a smaller scale would be the way to go, but I would be reluctant to buy into a scale that is only handled by one manufacturer. Plus, my eyes couldn't handle it! 8)
Tips for improving them? I don't think so!! :yeah: :yeah:

You have managed to do a great paint job on these diminutive figures, well done!

I have to say that I have a degree of admiration for Warlord Games in launching this Epic range, which is rapidly expanding. It does provide everything you need, often in one big box, to create a large tabletop army. Were I starting all over again, I'd look seriously at buying into this range,

However, I have far too many 1/72 Napoleonics already....starting the same armies all over again but in a different scale is one step too far.

Great work Rich!! I painted a fair number of the Warlord ACW Epic scale stuff. Once you figure out how to paint the strip of 10 figures it goes very quickly I found.

The figures are high quality, but your paintjob on them is superb, Rich. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Great work! :thumbup:
