Put some pictures up of  10mm French Revolutionary Wars figures fro. The pictures were taken with my iphone so not the best quality. I know there are some mixed feeling about this range but I really like the figures alot, I'm a fan of some caricature in my sculpts.

Les Bleus:

Nice work, so many lovely uniforms in the Revolutionary war, and often overlooked for Napoleonic armies. Lovely work on those characterful little troops. Smiley

Not a fan of the sculpts, to be honest (which is strange because I like the almost cartoonish look of Foundry 28mm SYW Prussians and 28mm Elite Miniatures Napoleonics). Nevertheless, the painting of them is marvellous. What a grand job!   Applause

Very nice indeed.....captures the somewhat irregular nature of the "sans colottes" uniforms really well.

I like your idea to use a SYW based set of rules rather than a Napoleonic based set since all the opposition was still fighting in the older linear style.

Not sure if anyone makes 10mm Mamelukes but the 1798 expedition to Egypt would give you some colourful opposition, if no Mamelukes there's always the British to fight  Wink

The paint job is quite simply, superb!  My only criticism, and I trust you will take it as a constructivw one, is regarding rhe flag. As the biggest single object on the base, it attracts the attention .At present, without folds, or drooping down, it look stiff, lifeless, and somewhat odd. Why not experiment with folding a dummy flag, maybe just white paper, perhaps in triangles, drooping away from the pole. When you find a look that appeals to you, then try and reproduce it on a unit.

Thanks for all the kind words gents. Mollinary, much appreciate the cronstructive criticism! I went back and added some bends and waves to the flags. Due to the size of the flagpoles and where their positioned I had to make the flags 8mm high so there isn't alot of area to make crazy flopping but they all now have some "movement" to them. Not sure why the photos came out so big.

You can edit the size of an image by adding width= or height= to the first img tag. I've used img width=700 for the ones below.

Once again "c'est magnifique!"

Put some pictures up of  10mm French Revolutionary Wars figures fro. The pictures were taken with my iphone so not the best quality. I know there are some mixed feeling about this range but I really like the figures alot, I'm a fan of some caricature in my sculpts.
