Prussian WIP 5/3/15

A few Prussians that are showing a good bit of progress.

Von Lutzow freicorp fusilier battalion are on their bases with sand applied.

However after the recent game of plancenoit I vowed to increase my landwehr in my army. 4th battalion of 6th Silesian landwehr 6 figures shy of completion!

I'm taking a break as I maxed out on them over a 1-2 week period. I plan to have the brigade finished by the end of March, I've cleaned up most of the other battalion and have a few ready to paint.

Also a wee bit of conversion fun, I switched the heads of the 2 AB prussian ADC and it worked pretty well, creating an infantry ADC or staff officer full dress and a hussar Officer with bicorne.

The other command is only one conversion, a Shako head added instead of cap as I already had the figure used in cap and the other guy will receive a satchel and become a Feldjaeger officer.

So that's it for the moment

Happy wargaming!

Best Paul

Nice work, Paul. Lutzow's is a fun unit to paint for some relief from the Prussian Blue!

Michael Mills said...

I'm always impressed by the level of character and detail you can pack into a 15mm miniature. Absolutely wonderful.

Thanks Ken, I think once I get to the end of the landwehr I'll do a prussian parade to see how far on I am?

Carlo said...

Every nice Paul. - every time I see your work I yearn for 15 mm again!!

Chasseur said...

Beautiful work, these are just lovely!

John (VonBlucher) said...

The Lutzow's are fantastic, and very hard to make black look this good. Exellent job on the conversions. Setting a completion date is wise as it helps you stay motivated.

Rodger said...

Awesome work Paul!

paulalba said...

Cheers Jamie, yip we should do that.

paulalba said...

Thanks Carlo, I do really enjoy 15's however if I had the money and the space I think I would do 28's. You can see so much more on a figure.

paulalba said...

Thanks chasseur, I wish I could bump out as many troops as you to the quality you get! Your a machine!!!

paulalba said...

Thanks John, I'll get better pics when they are finished. Yeah I've marked a star on my painting calendar when I want to have both done by. I'll let you know how I get on.

paulalba said...

Cheers Gary!

Glad you like th tarty,
I used the AB landwehr figures with heads swapped. A lot of pain on the figures cutting and drilling the heads and adding backpacks etc but they came out well. You can see the ongoing conversions here:
