Bit ashamed to post my stuff here, as some of the painters I've seen on this forums are just... stunning.

But figured it would be a shame not to share some of my stuff as well. I tried to hand paint some of the flags (which I felt melded with the figs better than the printed stuff).

Also unsure about the blue. Feels a bit too bright, yet its intended for gaming where colors do need to stand out a bit, so I'm a bit unsure. Feedback would be most appreciated!

There are more images and close ups on my blog -> battlegoatsandtrumpets.blogspot.com

No shame at all, those are really good paint jobs.
You need a lighter shade sometimes with 10mm to make them stand out.

Absolutely!

Really nicely painted, love the standards. I prefer painted flags to printed ones - though my painting is such that I tend to use printed myself these days.

Nice blog - liked the Battle Report on the FoW game.

Welcome to the Pendraken funny farm .... err, forum!


Haha, thanks for the welcomes! I have to say, I've honestly fallen in love with the Pendraken 10mm napoleonics. I've never really been "in" to Napoleonics before, and I did paint up some masses of 6mm stuff from Baccus, but I hated how I had to go through all the work just for a brigade of four bases looked good. It was just too small, and while the 28mm stuff looked amazing, I don't like the scale to game with. After much debate between 15mm/18mm and 10mm.... I tried 10mm to preserve the 6mm massed feel, and wow, these are amazing to paint.

Leon from customer support has been incredibly helpful too, so I've got another couple french battalions/regiments to paint before I begin ze Austrians Cheesy

Those are figures to be proud of and once you get them on a table with some terrain you will be wondering if the blue is bright enough  Wink

Really nice looking force, great painting and basing.

So that we can all see the figures better, you could try cropping some of the photos to focus in on the figures, rather than the nice desk  Wink

Welcome to the Twilight Zone!

I agree with everyone else - nothing whatever to be ashamed of. They look great.

And the mantra when painting smaller figures is "paint light", otherwise they're just dark blobs.

The French Napoleonic marching songs appear to be doing a good job inspiring you, Leon! Don't think you need much advice on how to paint small figures, your 6mm Napoleonics are equally excellent! And your vehicles are stunning! Good to see you've had a shot at a kneeling voltigeur a skirmishing pose that would be nice to see included in the range. Foundry do a triad of French blues, if you're interested. I share your liking for a battle-worn, rag-tag look. I've never embraced the lighter colour theory, myself.

Cheers, Michael

Never underestimate your abilities. These look great AND you've produced enough to game with. Great stuff.
