I used to play a lot of Warhammer and for some reason I see the French in Napoleonic times as pretty much like the orcs (albeit not green and scaly) – you simply can’t have enough of them. This little lot are meant to represent the 1st Battalion of the 17th Line who were part of the 2nd Division of the 1st Corps at Waterloo.
All miniatures are a mixture of metal and plastic Perry, flag GMB.
These were completed using Army Painter – a combination of grey undercoat and the mid-tone shade. Not too sure it works with blue but reasonably pleased with the effect on great coats.
