Painting for Geoff - AWI and 9YW

It's been a while since the last post, and I missed out My Wargaming Week 4, so obviously I've been distracted. Well part of it is the end of term shamozzle. The other part is the arrival of the long awaited and eagerly anticipated Great Northern War Compendium. I've made a promise to myself not to post a review until I've read the whole thing, so it could be a while in coming, because the book(s) is huge! But by way of a quick summary - it is fantastic!
Right, so, onto painting. First up - some Perry Miniatures Hessian Jagers for the American War of Independence:
I don't know if it's just that my eyes and hand are unable to cope, or the size of the sculpts, but I couldn't paint convincing pupils in the eyes of these guys - sorry Geoff.

Followed by a Dutch artillery crew for the Nine Years War:
These guys have eyes - good old Front Rank
I have a dozen or so Nine Years War Dutch Dragoons that have now migrated to the painting tray to wind up this group of figures from Geoff.

  1. Having painted a number of the Perry jaegers myself, the Perry Germans are excellent sculpts in a variety of poses. My Perry figures always arrive with the packing tufts sticking to all of the vent flash. I never seem to be able to completely rid a Perry figure of all of its annoying vent flashing. Oh well, I do enjoy painting them.

    Your 9YW Dutch dragoons are splendid! Very fine brushwork!

    1. Thanks Jon. Yes, some of the Perry figures can have a lot of flash attached - Geoff cleans his figures before he sends them to me, which is a major time-saver!

    1. Good news! Were you playing Napoleonics with the OHW variant?

  5. Wonderful paintjobs on some lovely looking minis, Nate. I especially like the blue uniforms you've achieved on the Dutch artillery crew.
