From Millsy: 28mm Napoleonic KGL Infantry (55 points)


From Millsy:

My next submission is 11 x 28mm King’s German Legion infantry from the Napoleonic Wars. These are Brigade Games miniatures and will be used for skirmish games. Once again these are a commission for a friend and finishes off my efforts in 28mm Napoleonics for now. I’ve never much liked the stovepipe shako, preferring the Belgic style but these have come out well enough.


The background is a painted scene given to me by my mother-in-law as a birthday gift. Its designed specifically for use as a background when taking photos of miniatures. I’m still getting the hang of the lighting with my new setup so to my mind these are not the best pics but they’ll have to do for now at least.
Great work on these KGL lads and what a thoughtful gift from you mother-in-law.  It looks to be a watercolour, did she paint it herself?

These eleven KGL will give Millsy 55 points. Well done!

  2. I do love your red on these Millsy, it is nice and muted and contrast really well with that white.

    Boy those Brits (or Germans playing Brits) knew how to have a cracking uniform!

  3. A very clean and crisp look to them. Definitely ready to put it to Johnny Frog.
    The backdrop is wonderful. Does your mother in law take commissions? :)

  4. I painted over the red with dip varnish to tone it down and it worked a treat. I wanted something a bit more restrained with and it seems to have done the trick.

    The background was a request for my birthday and is watercolours on MDF. I'll have to ask about commissions. It never crossed my mind until now. :-)
