My First Perry British Napoleonics!
Well, I've had a box of Perry British sitting around for some time... they came as a bonus when I got a subscription to Wargames Illustrated from my inlaws.
So, I figured that with the Wargames Factory Vikings on the way, I should get a bit of experience with plastics, since it has been a LONG time since I worked with them!
Above are the four Greenjackets that came with the box... I figured they would be a good place to start, since they are fairly simple... not a lot you can do! I tried to focus on the heads, making sure that they were looking in the best direction, and hopefully adding a bit of life to the figures. I did do a slightly conversion on one chap, having him holding his shako... I figure that I can paint him with some bright blond locks and it will look fairly sharp against the green.
I also have done up two officers... one is a fairly stiff chap, the other, a veteran sergeant, with a bushy moustache and a bald head... clearly a big, beefy fellow you would NOT want to mess with, especially not when he is holding a bit nasty pike! The head is from Wargames Factory and BIT oversized, but I think once it is painted it will look just fine.
Anyway... I might work on a few more, but that is what I have so far!
