Zinnfiguren

Post by Ilkley Old School »

I have started a new thread to record progress on my Zinnfiguren Project.

To kick off I painted these 6 figures over 11 years ago when I got my first Zinnfiguren. Yesterday I rebased them on my new basing as part of my restarted project.

Image

This unit is the Erbprinz from Charge. I have on 60 by 30mm and stuck two mdf bases together so the bases are easier to pick up and move.

Each base of Infantry will represent a battalion and I will paint two battalions for each regiment giving me the option of deploying 2 bases as a unit if I wish.

Image

I will probably do a few Imagination units as well as core Austrian and Prussian units. This allows greater flexibility as they can fight for either side depending on the scenario.

Image

Next up will be some Prussian Grenadiers which I painted 7 years ago. Once these are done I will start painting some new figures.

Oh so pretty. You've done a great job on the painting style needed for flats - they really pop!

I adore flat figures... I have several waiting for me to paint.

How thick is the doubled mdf? I can cut you some 6mm thick ones if you wanted to lose the join line.

They are 4mm. Can you do 4mm ? I think 6mm will look a bit too thick.

I can do 3mm or 3.6mm.

It is the offcuts and bits from laser playing. 4mm isn't a thickness I have used.

Drooling uncontrollably here. Oh, wait - that's actually caused by something else. OK, still very nice, though!
