Gaining Mass

With my choice to double my previous SYW unit size and go with 72 figures in a unit, I think I am getting the effect I started out to achieve.  With a nuber of units on the board, it is starting to look more like a battle as opposed to some unit markers.

I have 7 units of patriots painted, that’s 525 figures.  Even if these are 6mm, they still look great ranked up in a group. Here’s two of them together.

You can see here that they are really starting to look like a mass of men on the field.  Perhaps a shot from the side allows you to see them better, they are 6mm after all!

I’m pretty happy with the results.  I will try to post another unit in the group every now and then.  I’m not sure my camera abilities will allow me to get an effective picture of these guys in a line.  That would be the best way to show them.  Pete from Baccus Miniatures had a picture of a napoleonic regiment in 1:1 on his site in the new section.  Quite worth a look.

I hope to be getting some scenery to make my pictures look a little more “realistic”.  I would like some trees in the background and some grass underneath them once in a while.

  1. Nice stuff again. Been contemplating 6mm for 7YW but have a shed load of 15’s to paint still. Could always go 10mm, some of them look nice.

    Thanks for the update.

  2. These look fantastic!…Nice paint job too. I’m more of your ‘as little effort as possible to get the best result’ kinda guy. So long as my 6’s look good when ranked together I’m happy. I do have a lot of admiration for a good paint job though…..keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks Steve, I’m getting back to it but taking things more slowly at the moment.
