More Poilu for Partizan


Partizan is in a couple of weeks and I'm hoping to be able to make a reasonable contribution towards the number of Frenchmen in our Bois Des Caures game.


In the previous update I had done the first 18 but over the past couple of weeks I really concentrated in getting more terrain done. However, this week I finished off the highlights on another half dozen and have painted another dozen from scratch.



This time I wanted to add some that were Chasseurs so have painted a good number of them with Dark Prussian Blue trousers and puttees and even one in a Chasseur kepi.



I also wanted to do some in 'raw leather' straps and pouches so used a base-colour of US Tan Earth and a highlight of Tan Yellow to represent the buff colour.




I also made an impromptu sniper, when I was cleaning the figure up I broke off his bayonet, so I selected a bare head that had a somewhat professional looking cast to his countenance and added a telescopic sight made from an old spear-staff.




Again, all figures are from the Woodbine Design Company supplied by Gripping Beast, With the exceptions noted above, all colours are as per the previous article.
