kev1964 has continued working through our late 19th C. European ranges and this time it's the French who get his expert treatment!

Kev, those are wonderful! Infinity better than I could ever do, those are amazing!

Simply wonderful work and a few very, very tempting codes to add to my Imagi-Nations forces. With Colours fast approaching, time to start making a list...

These are great.

And its great to see all the figures and poses - there are a few that I think could be interesting for the TMWWBKs forces.

Ooh those Zouaves in caban are almost spot on for 1840s Algerian troops

Do they have backpacks?

Post by: Leon on 29 August 2018, 11:09:12 PM
Do they have backpacks?

They might do?!  The caban is over the top of everything but there is a slight bulge underneath it, so there could be a backpack hiding under there.

Superb paint job and an excellent advert. Always wondered what the Guard Nationale figures looked like.

Thank's  for the comments chap's , I really enjoyed painting this range of figs.

It's been ages since I've been able to post or view any pic's on here or other sites as my laptop seems to be very selective in what I can do. I'm catching up slowly using my phone but with fat fingers and a small screen it's taking me ages  ;D.
There has been some stunning painting recently , so a belated congrats to all who took part in the painting competition.


best

Would have thought that photos taken in 1870 would be black and white ?  :- :d

Get that man's coat!  ;D

Turning to the photos .... great paintwork, indeed.  :-bd  It often amazes me nowadays when looking at other manufacturers' websites how many of them still cling to the hope that you will buy their figures without seeing them. Congrats once again, Leon, for being on the ball and continued progress in your quest to show us all of your wonderful products.

To me, that's another reason why the forum is so damn useful/helpful.

If there's not a pic of a particular figure in 'the shop'.....folk (or Sir) will jump in, so that someone who would like to know what said figure looks like, gets to see it.

Cheers - Phil

Well, they're very good.

But it wasn't what I was expecting from the thread title.  :(

Cheers!  It's a long slog but I hate not having pics of the products on the site.  As you say, how can we expect people (especially those new to this scale or new to us) to come and buy something without knowing what it looks like.  We're making good progress but there's a long way to go yet!

But it wasn't what I was expecting from the thread title.  :(

I'll get the other 1,826 photos sorted and up soon...   ;)

Iíll have Mademoiselle Frufru send you some in a brown paper envelope.

100% agree with that....Pendraken are to be congradulated on being so proactive about putting up pictures of their new (and existing) ranges up on the website....It makes it much easier for folks like me who are far away from any shows etc to be tempted to buy stuff if I can see what it looks like....wish other manufacturers would do the same, even if its just for their new releases.

I'm sure the time and effort that the Pendraken team put into including pictures translates to more sales.

Yes, I would certainly agree with that. I had no idea how good the new Austrian dragoons, cuirassiers and rocket troops looked.
