Having finished some 350+ figures, I thought I would post a review of what I have painted.

Very very nice, very commendable.
I seem to notice several variations from historical colors and standards. Are these Imagi-Nations?

Cheers for you kind comments Otto, yes some are imagination some are historical. My imagination is the Kingdom of Tiberia, who’s uniforms are remarkably similar to the French army 1720 – 1760 or the Army of Savoy or Austria or Prussia.
Here are some more Otto, as you can see a mixture of historical and non historical.25/10/2015 at 13:24 #33286Otto SchmidtParticipant
Once again EXCELLENT WORK. I am especially impressed with the conversions you have made, as I find I do that a lot myself. I have Imagi-Nations also almost exclusively, and I do a LOT of conversions. Somehow for me I can’t seem to make a Cavalry regiment any more without putting in two or three special figures like Musicians. I love to lavish detail on the drum horses.
What I am especially gratified with your work is how good the Spencer Smith’s look. These are I believe plastic versions of the old SAE figures, of which I have a large American Revolution war Army fragment left to me by an old wargame buddy who died many years ago. I have been reconditioning them to be put back into service alongside my usual Stadden and Surens. They are old, rounded, poorly detailed, and badly painted from the factory and I am touching up the paint here and there. However, I have found that in my view, once you get them on the stand they look just as stirring, martial and military as any minis, and your work has proven it again.
I wish I could send you photos of my own Imaginations but I’m too cheap to do a photo server and don’t have the energy for a blog. If you send me your e-mail at [email protected], I’ll send you photos. Also guides to the colors of my regiments.
Once again, excellent job! Now I have to look for the source of these to get some of my own.

Exactly what I was going to say Mike
Otto here is the link to Spencer Smith Miniatures, they are metal now but basically the same figures. They are not that expensive to buy.
If you want a good source of 18th century material and information, I can highly recommend “John Rays A Military Gentleman” purchase the book and you can join the forum.26/10/2015 at 15:55 #33341Henry HydeParticipant29/10/2015 at 16:45 #33488
Cheers for you kind comments Henry.
