These are the figures that I have for the French. The are all from Perry Miniatures, except Marshal Ney who is from Eureka Miniatures.
The figures were actually painted more than a month ago, but I had not finished the bases. My initial test base for making snow (Baking soda, glue, white paint and water) had not turned out the way I planned.
However several YouTube videos convinced me that this was indeed the way to go, so I made the magic mixture again and put the paste on a few test figures. This result was a lot better, so the next day I started to base all the minis. In truth I ran out before all the figures had been based, so it ended up taking two evenings work. I have left the edge of the base in a light grey as the ruleset I plan on using, makes use of facing and it will be a lot easier to see with a light grey edge.
For the paint job I looked at the lovely painted minis on the Perrys´website and found other pictures via Google. My knowledge of the different uniforms of the different type of troops is limited, sp I needed the images to make sure that the minis look as realistic as possible.
So here you have my Grand Armée figures. I still need to paint 3 French Cavalry figures, but with another 3 figures on my Christmas wish list I decided to wait with those figures as you never know what Santa might bring.
