Back onto some buildings. This is my first batch of random FMS buildings and a few other ones I found on thingverse and resized. Every batch will have 1-2 colours to save time, and I went with light grey and yellow. The extreme closeups are not very flattering but from 2ft, they look great.
Austrian Jaegers These will end up on some Infantry brigade bases as well as Mixed Brigades Mixed brigades in Grand Armee are a mix of Infantry, cavalry and light infantry. I'm still painting the infantry and cavalry but soon I will have 5 bases of mixed completed.
Tricky to paint and some came out with part of their heads missing, so I had to add some blobs of PVA Glue to increase the height!
I've been pretty slack with this project over the last 6 months but I am keen to get to a point where I can put figures on the table and have a game.
I reviewed what I had printed and a lot of the 3D prints from last year had bad warping and probably 1/3 got binned. I think the plastic was too old or I just didn't have the settings right. Also there was a lot of stringing especially between the heads on the figures and a lot of heads came off during cleanup, and trying to glue back on 2mm heads isn't fun! So in the end it was easier to just print as the new bases and the new ones have virtually no stringing, so I didn't spend hours on that, instead of painting the little f*%kers.
So I have started a big push and have prepared
21 French Infantry bases
16 Austrian bases of infantry (grey base coat)
10 bases of heavy cavalry (6 French and 4 Austrian)
24 bases of Austrian Artillery (no limbers yet)
French reinforcements (with flags made from green stuff)
I was hoping to update this thread sooner but its been a crazy time with the virus thing, and then my work got extremely busy for the last 3 weeks. But I did manage to finish off the Austrian infantry from my last post. This is a large chunk of my army and I am a lot closer to being able to a play a game.
All 16 bases were painted at once (around 2000 figures) and I used a fine tip black and red pen on the flags which I am especially pleased with.
One of the better flags
All of them
Squares (with a splodge of green paint to touch up)
You're making me jealous! These look incredible. I can't wait to see both armies on the table. Regarding being busy, tell me about it! I've got a half dozen projects I want to get done for FMS and I can't find the time for any of them.
