After looking at the voting, I can not contain my excitement even though I know the result is not in... I don't care. I decide to start working on it anyway LOL~
British Rifle is one of my favorite unit in Napoleonic era and I'm glad I finally paint one.
After careful consideration with his posture, I decide to give this gent an arrogance look. With the British long and proud history of military tradition, this fellow is defiant and contempt of the mighty French empire.
As a clinical painter (I love clean work), This time I decide to add some mud to the trouser. Mixing baking soda and paint, I paint it to simulate mud with texture. However, I decide to only paint mud on one knee. Logically, we humans usually kneel on the same knee. Afterall, we are creatures of habit.
Offensive Miniatures did an excellent job on their figures. IMHO they are good is because the animation of the sculptures are believable and natural, not to mention interesting. However, if you want to push the even further then watch out for the missing details such as buckles and cuff buttons. Also, this figure is a tad smaller than Perry and Victrix figures.
As you can see, the Offensive Miniature figure is smaller next to Victrix plastic.
How ever, I don't think it makes too much difference for gamers. But you can clearly see the difference. Since I only have one set from OM, I can not speak for other figures from their company.
The reason I have not done the base is because I decide to custom order them. Once they arrived I will build them.
Anyways, rambling on again. but hopefully this explain my train of thought. Whether plain or complex uniform, there is always a challenge waiting for us.
