95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War

3 04 2014

This is my 95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War, from March’s workbench.

The figures are mostly Foundry, sculpted by the Perry’s with a couple of Perry plastics thrown in. I’m not happy with the colour as it is much too light, they were known as the “Sweeps” as the uniform is a very dark green. Maybe in the future I’ll do a black wash over the uniform to darken it. Hopefully any opponents won’t complain too much about the inaccurate colours.

Good paintjob, with subdued colors and subtle shading. Really has this “on campaign” feeling. I also like the movement tray. The slight stone texture on the edge is a nice solution and adds interest.

The front of the movement tray was Dremel distressed. I wish I had put a little more glue between the two sheets and avoided the “join line”.
