'Fellowship' from NoelW: French in Egypt

It's intriguing how Curt keeps coming up with themes that force us to delve into the unfamiliar regions of our unpainted collections. I found it hard to come up with anything like an original idea, but rooting around in the dusty recesses of the lead Alps, I found  this telling image of a wounded French Trooper being brought in for treatment. The figures come from the Perrys' Napoleon in Egypt range, which (pretty much like all their figures) includes some beautiful sculpts of some exotic uniforms.

I've painted the trooper in the Kleber uniform of the 9th Line Demi-Brigade (scarlet jacket, bright green facings). Here's the posed shot (using three of the palm trees I posted earlier this week):

  1. Very nice. Especially the chap in yellow.

  2. Wow, I really like this vignette. I've been meaning to start painting figures for this 'theater' and this provides great inspiration. Beautiful brushwork Noel.

    1. The Perrys' Facebook page has dozens of inspirations for this theatre, (around May 2017, I think) and I can let you have a short biblio, if you need it.

  3. Very nice work on this piece Noel. Well done.
