In a first for me (first time ever owning any Napoleonic troops - honestly..) here are some newly-painted 10mm Pendraken Napoleonics based up on 40mm wide bases for our CLWC club-standard basing for Bataille Empire.

These are a couple of test paints of standard sized 4-base units, for which I've used four 40mmx20mm DBx bases with two ranks on the rear base and one rank + skirmishers on the front rank base to set up the unit. These guys are undercoated in Army Painter blue spray, then inked in Army Painter dark blue ink before having the other colours added to them.



This is my first foray into painting Naps, and I thought that by doing them in 10mm not only would they get a good mass effect, I also wouldn't have to be too detailed on the painting of straps and the like. However, I did get suckered into adding coloured epaulets on these... against my better judgement. I also tried dark-washing the trousers of the main marching infantry, which came out a bit darker than I would like, so I painted over some of them again with white. The 2 shooting chaps at the front have uninked trousers at the moment for comparison.



I've not got any knowledge of this period other than at a very (very...) superficial level, so the apparently very important colour schemes for the pompoms and feathers in their hats and the like is somewhat ("entirely") beyond me. Grenadiers stick around the flag and have red pompoms, and everyone else has some sort of cllour that is only yellow in exceptional circumstances... is I think how it works?  Grin

There's a few more photos on my blog at: https://madaxemandotcom.blogspot.com/2019/12/something-new-shiny-and-tiny-10mm.html

Grenadiers should be on the right of the formation if in line.

There will be a colour party defending the Eagle/Colours.

Right of the line as they face, position of honour.

 Thumbs up Applause Thumbs up

A touch of blue and red along the edge of the flag would hide the white paper Wink
I like the more animated flag of the rear unit Smiley

Yep - I think I did the red edging on the flag, but realise now that I posted these before doing the blue. Probably down to using blue as a base undercoat, so there was no need to get the blue paint out again after the flag was done!
