95th Rifles

The models I am using for the 95th Rifles are very detailed and one of the aspects of a white undercoat I do like is how it brings out and shows off the detail.

Though there aren’t many models in this unit I’m painting, there are a number of officers.

I am thinking that when I do finish painting them and have a game, the scenario would be that a group of officers are separated from the main force, or are on a hunting trip and are then attacked.

I still don’t know which opponents to get for them, probably French Voltigeurs.

Undercoating the 95th Rifles

Having based my 25mm 95th Rifles I gave the models a white undercoat.

I like how the white undercoat certainly brings out the detail.

I really enjoyed both watching the Sharpe TV series and then reading the Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell. As a result many years ago I bought some 25mm Napoleonic 95th Rifles, mainly on impulse with the intention of painting them at some point. Found them the other day…

The first thing I did was base them using two pence pieces and Citadel Sand.

I will be using them as they were in the Penisular War, so will be giving them gravelly bases with some brush grass.
