Prinz Clemens 2nd Battalion

So I have at long last finished another Saxon battalion. This is the 2nd battalion of the Prinz Clemens regiment. I believe the 1st Saxon battalion I painted was the 1st battalion of this regiment so that's the regiment completed.

A wee video on the finished bits and what else I have on the go.

I've added in an NCO to the battalion converted from the newer AB French set. He's a fair bit bigger than the older Saxon range however he still fits in pretty well.

I've again tried to give a bit of variety to the unit by doing different colours of trousers and mixing up my shades of white on the uniforms and belts. 

I also added in a converted officer in the blue/grey uniform that was apparently frequently used on campaign.  I started off a bit too warm on it and I'm not 100% happy how he turned out, however within the battalion he'll mingle and do fine.  

What next? Well I've cleaned up another Saxon battalion and I'm painting some Saxon skirmishers and an ADC that I've converted.

Those are very well done again Paul
I particularly like your basing though, I think its probably hard not to overdo it this scale but you really have based them well

Chasseur said...

Superb work again Paul!

Phil said...

Excellent as always Paul!

James MacCraggs said...

Stunning as ever Paul!

Rupert Lane said...

Stunning as always. Guard will provide a nice dash of colour amongst the Saxons!

Michael Mills said...

Wonderful work as ever! I do wonder about the grief that chap in the red striped pants must get from his mess mates though... :-)

Stryker said...

Those are fantastic Paul - just SO good!

Colbourne said...

paulalba said...

Lol thanks Millsy, yes that could well be an issue.

Thanks Ru, I have the head swaps done, I really only need to tidy the necks and add epaulettes but I've cleaned another regular battalion fir speed. I'll get them done before the end of the year I'd say.

paulalba said...

Thanks very much stokes, it's good to have them done!

paulalba said...

Thanks very much Von P, would like to see them finished but still a good 2ay off yet.

paulalba said...

Thanks Valleyboy, and the basing is very simple. Easiest buy if a little time consuming.

paulalba said...

Thanks very much Chasseur, always good to get another little bit done.

David Brown said...

Excellent as usual Paul!

I may have missed it, but where did that rather nice Grenadier guard officer come from - conversion?

DB

paulalba said...

Thanks very much David, yes he's a conversion. He's from the newish 1812-15 bardin French mounted officer with a headswap from the French guards in greatcoat.

Once more congratulations! Magnificent miniatures, excellent painting and a great staging. Cordial greetings from the distant Argentine Republic, Carlos

Hi there

Been admiring many of your figure uploads for some time now...impressive painting. Briefly, of course, could you outline a basic procedure to your painting method? Undercoat, multi shades for one colour hue, that sort of thing? Do you use Army Painter? Highlights after AP (if you use)?

Thanks for any time considering my post. These are sterling 15 mm Naps out there on the internet that you paint!

Kind regards

Ross

Hi Ross sorry for not getting back sooner, haven't been around the blog.

For Saxons I base coat in a very light grey.

Block in base colours flesh

For white uniform I choose if it will be warm or cold white.

Block in Iraqi sand warm

And use the base grey for cold.

Block in the facing colours then do fine detail.

Then I bring the shades lighter with chosen mid tones with colours over selected mixed. Pale sand and ivory for warm.

Highlight the facing colours and belts then gave with miss then highlights.

Then finish all the details and highlights.

Hard to explain as I have colours I use for each party and mostly mix.

Hope that's of us.
Cheers
Paul
