Greder Allemand

Adding a bit of colour to my French WSS army, these are the regiment Greder Allemand, 28mm Front Rank figures with Maverick Models flags.

  1. Hey Meic,a reaĺly great,cohesive look to these units.....as always!. The area that really "pops" is the cuffs and buttons, did you paint a darker colour strip and then brass the buttons or is it a drop of wash brushed on after the brass? The technique really defines the cuff details. Have to admit my troops buttons hardly show up, I can see why now,well done fella!.

    1. Hi Mike, thanks for the kind comments, feel free to ask any questions no secrets to protect here!
      I paint the area for the buttons in black then simply add the buttons in a bright brass - I use Foundry Bronze Barrel 103C, and don't bother with the shade and mid, just go straight to the highlight for buttons. It's usually the very last thing I paint on a miniature.

  4. Great looking WSS unit - I have always liked the great detail on Front Rank - makes them a joy to paint - how do you find the Ebor in comparison?

    1. Thanks for the compliment, very much appreciated. I've always enjoyed painting Front Rank without doubt the manufacturer I enjoy painting the most. I do like Ebor as well, I find they take a little longer, but I suspect that's partially down to the number of figures I've painted. But if I was told I could only pick one, it would be Front Rank. Fortunately I don't have to, it's nice to have a little variety.
