From IanW - 6mm British Napoleonic Rifle Battalions (24 Points)


Now for the small stuff, I have painted up these two battalions of rifles for my nine year old's growing Peninsular army. They are Baccus 6mm and needed very little clean up work.


First up the 60th Rifles who tend to get over shadowed by the 95th due to the Sharpe novels. Shame really as I think the red facings make them a better looking unit.


Talking of the 95th, here they are with a few more out front skirmishing the poor French. Each base has 24 figures making for a total of 24 point's as I make a move on my second side challenge.


Ahh, our 6mm specialist, excellent. These look marvelous, Ian. I can clearly visualize the mullets, hear the churning guitars of 'Over the Hills and Far Away' while I peer into the ranks of the 60th to see if I can spot Sweet William. ;) 
Well done and 24 points for you!

  9. Your 6mm always makes me want to do 6mm. Then I remember how much I curse 20mm sometimes and I come to my senses. Fantastic work Ian!

  17. Thanks all, 6mm are not so hard to paint, it's all about what you paint and leave out. Tend to go one shade brighter though

  19. I love Napoleonics at this scale. Great work! (I did kind of smile at the mention of facing color differences--at this scale, who cares? :P)
