Back in the Shine or What a load of Shine!!!
Back in July last year I wrote a post called Shinyloo and showed some retro figures deliberately painted in a retro style. I maintained at the time that this was an "occaisional diversion" . So it proved, other stuff , not least my 15mm moderns project- of which I had almost nothing back in July - has mushroomed into 2 forces fitt for the table. So fit in fact that THIS year we, that is the TWATS, will be using them at the Durham show.
However I digree , back to the point. Here therefore are a few more Shiny Dudes
Here we see the Emperor Napoleon Shinyparte and a couple of his staff. Stadden and Willie figues .
These 6 are old Hincliffe Nassauers- so will fight on the Allied side
"Missed Me you Bounder! Wille Officer Stadden Old Guard and Minot British wounded figure.
Close up of the British Officer- Sir Ronseal Yatch-Varnish. Very suitable for a chap so SHINY
I've set myself a few rules for this project- which of course I'll bend or break when it suits me.
1/. Figures should be 30mm or thereabouts- no matter what it says on the packet.
2/. Out of production figures are used where possible. So waiting in the wings I have a bundle of Minots.
All figures to be based singly on round bases. For this project I want a retro look but of a better standard than many of the games from that time.
Nevertheless its still simply a small diversion from the main periodsand I paint 'em this way not because its a fashion or because I'm a memebr of the OFW set but simply becausev it amuses me to do so. Right now back to those 15mm Moderns...
