Marines & Lithuanians!

G'day all,
today I'm sharing some pictures from two recent commission projects I finished.
First up are 28mm Royal Marines from Newline Designs in the UK. They are nice clean sculpts, very little clean up, and excellent value for money from what I can see. We have gone for the summer uniform with white trousers rather than the navy blue winter issue. They also have the distinctive blue facings of the Napoleonic era.
As with all my miniature painting I never use a pure white, preferring an Ivory, Cream or Off-White colour.
There will be more Marine related posts in the future, using miniatures from a different manufacturer.












Next are 28mm Wargames Foundry Russian Lancers of the Napoleonic wars. I have painted them as Lithuanian Uhlans. The customer is putting the lances in himself, plus basing them.
I have painted the horses in various shades of brown using tube acrylics and wet blending with a large brush - I did a YouTube tutorial on my method here: https://youtu.be/Joxw7tTPQzk
I have given the officer a distinctly darker horse.







All the best,
John.

Enjoy your painting! :-)

    1. Cheers Phil. Although I have moved away from Napoleonics for my own collections, it can still be fun to paint them for other people :-)
