painting SYW 28mm Foundry and WarTime Miniatures

Small WIP of some Foundry SYW Prussians which are going to join the iMaginary forces railed against the peace-loving iNation of Hesse Kassoulet.  I have used a fairly generic uniform colour and I am pretty certain I can find a Kriess or Palatinate regiment that fits the facings etc. I’m trying out some new ideas and adjusting the way I swab the paint this is the first look, also an interesting pose come posture with the figure…..

The WarTime Hanoverian figure looks great, I like the RSM types with their cane and taches, would definitely have at least 4 of these little pedants dressing the lines if I was using large battalion rules, you silly little man! This fellow is painted as belonging to regiment 2B.  I haven’t used any metallic paint on these figures just a bit of nmm so far, I was planning to get a nice look going for the Hanoverians and the Foundry piece got caught up in the excitement.

    • I’ve never been in Foundry’s pay grade (except for their big sales) so I cant comment, I have painted a few but never owned many until now. The WarTime miniatures Hanoverian looks much better in comparison, the Foundry figure seems a bit random in the sculpting and hang of the uniform. These may be an older version and I believe Foundry had a number of sculpters besides the Perry brothers.
