ALY MORRISON'S "BUTTERFLY" ADVENTURES IN THE WORLD OF WARGAMES AND TOY SOLDIERS

Sunday, 31 May 2020

A Song of Drums and Shakos... Yet more Chasseures de Montagne.

Greetings...
Here is yet another addition to this project...
This time it is some rank and file Chasseures and a few command types...










These chaps are pretty much straight from the box... the only thing I have changed is the cuffs.






An Officer, a Musician, a Sergeant and a Sapper...
The only one that has had any real work done is the Officer... He has an elite company head from the Hussar box set and I altered the boots to fit in with the light infantry look...


The Uniform is... Citadel... Doombull Brown... With a Diluted Contrast Gore-Grunta Fur wash.
The Facings and Piping are... Wargames Foundry... Sky Blue 21B.
Plumes and Cords are... Citadel... Warboss Green... Citadel... Evil Sunz Scarlet... or Wargames Foundry... Sky Blue 21B.
The White Bits are... Citadel... Pallid Wych Flesh.
The Water Bottle and Bayonet Scabbard are... Citadel... Skrag Brown.
The Pack and Musket Stock are... Citadel... Mournfang Brown.
The Greatcoat is... Citadel... Administratum Grey.
The Water bottle Strap is... Wargames Foundry... Buff Leather 7B.


As usual everything was given a wash of Aly's Brown Liquid and was highlighted with the original colour...
The Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, Red and White were all given a further highlight then the leather goods were gloss varnished.


The miniatures are Perry Miniatures...

Paints from...

The bases are Warbases...

I would like to add a sergeant for the Voltigeurs and the Grenadiers and I think they will be done for the moment...
The next addition for this collection is going to be a few British Light Infantry...


All the best   Aly.

    1. Thank you Keith...
      It’s one of my favourite colour combinations...
      I have to be careful or the whole project will consist of troops wearing different variations of brown clothing...

      All the best. Aly

  4. Like Jonathan, the sky blue just pops. It great to be able to use the busby for the officer too.

  7. Beautiful work Aly. Can I ask about the back-drop? It's extremely effective.

    1. Thank you...
      I found my backdrop by doing an image search for photographic backdrops...
      I found one I liked and did a save image to file...
      It is printed out at a high quality on A3 paper....

      I think it was this one... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cassisy-1-5x2-2m-Background-Photography-Backdrops/dp/B07R2LR13W

      The real item is quite a large affair ...
      I hope this helps.

      All the best. Aly
