28mm Napoleonic French REMF Base


My apologies for not posting much lately, I've been working like a Trojan on getting our back yard re-landscaped. Nonetheless, I've not been completely idle hobby-wise and have managed to finish this small vignette depicting a group of French infantry who are taking a break from assisting an artillery battery and chatting with a visiting orderly.


These are assorted Perry castings from their Waterloo range. This is the first time I've tried doing a leopard skin effect on a shabraque which was kinda fun. Ultimately my plan is to have one of these bases behind each of my gun models with ammunition caissons following on behind them. 


With a little luck I hope to have another one of these vignettes completed in the next week or so...

  5. Thanks very much for all the kind comments, guys! The next vignette will incorporate Warlord's excellent Vivandiere and her trusty donkey which should be fun to work with.
