The guns were painted using Foundry Ochre triad and finished with AP, and I really like how they came out. After many experiments in the last few weeks, these were also the first unit to get my new way of painting whites for cloth, using Andrea white paint set. It's less pure white than what I used to do, but I think it's more subtle and more realistic.
If I can muster the courage, and if Curt keeps the madness going next year, I'd like to paint a caisson and some limbers for my guns during next year's challenge! But not this year, I can only manage painting artillery in small dosage!
I believe this quatuor of guns adds 100 pts to my total. Not bad.
Beautiful great guns Iannick! You're right about the austere Austrian military aesthetic which is interesting as they usually get historically stereotyped by their frippery and showy artifice. That being said I love the ochre of the gun carriages. I have a bunch of the Foundry 'triads' and so will have to pick this one up. I also really like your basework. It has a vibrant impressionistic feel that I really find pleasing - it sort of reminds me of how Sidney does his Great War bases but, of course, in a different colour palette. Again, well done Iannick!
