Hi everybody,
Here my latest 10mm army for BBB. Serbian Army during 1877-1878.
Thanks to Ktravlos, I have been persuaded to build a second 19c army to oppose my Ottomans.
I used mainly Babac's book for background and colors search but internet was also useful.
Here is the break down of my minis and paints.
I used WW1 Serbian Infantry in cap (S1) , WW1 Serbian Cavalry Rifle (S2) and WW1 75mm field gun with crew in cap (S3).
But WW1 gun was too modern for the period so I used 1878 era French guns instead (thanks Ktravlos again)
Commander/General was from ACW range Mounted Staff Officers (ACW36) (the one wearing kepi)

Colors:
Tunic: Brown. Any brown will do, I suppose. I used a domestic brand spray and highlighted with Citadel Bestial Brown
Cap and pants: Bluish Gray. I used Italeri 4778AP (Helblau RLM 65)
Boots: Italeri 4780AP (Schwarzgrun RLM70) (some models have opanchi instead of boots which I painted white then washed in brown)
Wood and leathers: Several shades of brown, buffs.
Rifle body: Revell Tar Black (to make a contrast again so many browns)
Tan, metals: whatever handy at that moment
Artillery: Light Gray

Oh wow - those are gorgeous! That light blue really contrasts beautifully with the rich brown tunics. Fantastic work! I hope they'll see action soon!

Guys, I am going slow to upload but It is hard to manage photos to fit in 128KB size.
My thanks to Leon. He was a great help to arrange my artillery to be period-correct.

This photo shows mainly my 1st Ban (first grade, or professional soldiers unit). They have I sign at the backs of bases and each unit has flag.
I used advancing figures for those units.
2nd Ban units donot have flags, have same uniform but some have opanchis instead of boots. I used bayonet facing figures for 2nd Ban.

Some trivia. I bought the army in April. I started painted in July and finished yesterday.
Flags are hand-painted. The material for flags is wine bottle foil (the one around cork). But it doesnt wavy as aliminum foil but surely much more stronger.
Frankly it was a speed-paint style not my best shot. But in that scale, I cut some corners and results were almost same.
Thanks for the kind words. Now I am waiting my time off to battle against Ktravlos's Ottomans. This time Aleksinac will be in Serbian hands!!!

Cool looking army - didn't even know Pendraken did Serbian figures!

Its cool that you can often use early WWI figures for quite a bit earlier.

With the photos if you upload them to a photo sharing website, then link to the forum you don't have to worry about the 128kb limit.
