AB 15mm/18mm Dutch Grenadiers Of The Imperial Guard

Hello all,
Just a quick work bench update part of the ongoing commission these were really nice to paint the white is painted cold so from a light grey base working up to pure white high lights again the client will base these . At least my lighting has improved now that I have an overhead light . So bellow are the completed Dutch I have some Dutch Red Lancers to show once they are varnished with some Polish Guard Lancers hard on their heels . Thanks for stopping by see you again soon.........

AB Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Horse Artillery

Hello all,
here's a couple of photos of some horse artillery for the commission that is ongoing at present . These are cracking figures and because of a lack of packs and muskets there are larger areas of uniform for you to paint (always fun ) . Thanks for taking a look, until next time.......

15mm/18mm AB French Imperial Guard Foot Artillery

Hello all,
another couple of pictures of my on going commission, again sorry for the poor lighting and soldiers on bottle tops ! As always when painting dark blue at this scale you have to be careful not to overdo the high lights as this can completely change the shade and make it more like a line infantry unit . So bellow are a couple of shots . Following along on their heels I am painting a unit of Imperial Guard Horse Artillery so more dark blue .
  I hope your painting is progressing well and your enjoying the hobby, until next time........
Regards Gavin .

AB 15mm/18mm Asorted French Napoleonic

Hi all,
I have more ab napoleonics to show today a bit of a mix, two command bases both of a general and a adc both the adc are from the cavalry I got the uniform details from the excellent book Jenna /Austadt  penned by F.G Hourtoulle  it's a very good book well laid out explaining how the battle came about and how it progressed and has lots of basic uniform details for all the combatants . These I will be putting up for sale when I have completed the third command base .
 The other pictures are from the commission I am working on at present they are Fussiliers Chasseurs of the Guard there isn't the variation in the sculpts as in some of the other ab range but they are first class none the less (the sculpts that is not my paint job !) . As with a lot of commissions the client will be baseing these I have left the flash off the camera so the colours aren't bleached .
Well that's it for now I will have some pictures of ab Guard Foot  Artillary crews up soon .
Regards Gavin .
