54mm AWI Grenadiers

No gaming this week to I have been hard at work painting. I finished of  unit of 54mm British Grenadiers. Figures are from All the King's Men and are quite lovely! I always like figures that trigger the camera's facial recognition software.

These were a fair bit of work to paint. Simply a lot of detail and, with the rifles where there are, lots of opportunity for unintentional paint slopping to be fixed.

I put a layer of future on these before I did the magic dip with the idea that the dip would not stain the white quite as much if it was already sealed.

As you can see with the comparison below, this worked out. The grenadiers look parade-ground ready versus the more campaign look of the regulars. The grenadiers also look a bit more well fed!

Up next: The command for the grenadiers are drying and I'm onto another unit of regulars so I can get them on the table at the club next week.

These are lovely - the faces do look good, and the bearskins have some very nice details on them too.

Thanks Dean!

Nice work Bob, when are we going to see them at the club?

Maybe this week if I can get the rest of the British regulars I have painted this weekend.
