A 'Century' for JohnM: 28mm Perry 1er Regiment de Carabiniers in Later Uniform

Holy cow! The guys just keep coming in with fresh entries for the Painting Challenge. Its only been a day since Greg's Austrian Dragoons made their grande review and now we have an answering volley from John in the form of the 1st Regiment of Carabiniers resplendent in their later uniform. These are 28mm Perry plastics painted with Vallejo alcohol-based metalics and Quickshade varnish.

I really like these models and John's paintjob has done them justice. I particularly like the characteristic reddish gold he's achieved with the cuirass, and the sky blue for the shabraques/porte-manteaus. Brilliant stuff, literally.

With this unit JohnM reinforces his lead with another 16 points and he achieves a 'century' for total points! Congrats John!


  1. Sylvain, you had the first century in our last Painting Challenge what gives? You gotta pick up the pace, my friend! ;P


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
