Well, I think I finally managed to get closer to the correct colour for French artillery pieces. A few days ago I posted a question on the TMP forum asking about the Gribeauval artillery system. I wanted to know if the carriages were all standard sizes with interchangeable barrels. In the course of many detailed and useful replies (plus a few sarcastic ones, why do they do that?) I discovered that my shade of green was completely wrong! Actually I learned a fair bit about French artillery of the period generally. Here are the repainted guns plus crews complete with new basing style.
I have just completed re-basing all 350 figures in this new style and I really like it. I think it represents the Waterloo muddy ground far better than the old basing style. Hopefully tomorrow I'll post some pics of the infantry and cavalry. I have closed up the infantry (now 15mm frontage) and based them in fours WRG style. I think they look much better this way.
I also made 2 little command bases using leftover infantry figures, again I think the new bases work well.
3 batteries of artillery, 1 guard foot with 6 pounder (non Gribeauval carriage I'm told!) plus 2 foot line manning 8 pounders.
