95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War

3 04 2014

This is my 95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War, from March’s workbench.


The figures are mostly Foundry, sculpted by the Perry’s with a couple of Perry plastics thrown in. I’m not happy with the colour as it is much too light, they were known as the “Sweeps” as the uniform is a very dark green. Maybe in the future I’ll do a black wash over the uniform to darken it. Hopefully any opponents won’t complain too much about the inaccurate colours.


The movement tray is a custom cut from Wargames Tournaments

Good paintjob, with subdued colors and subtle shading. Really has this “on campaign” feeling. I also like the movement tray. The slight stone texture on the edge is a nice solution and adds interest.

The front of the movement tray was Dremel distressed. I wish I had put a little more glue between the two sheets and avoided the “join line”.
