Early Germans - DBA II/47

First 4 bases of my Early German DBA army. The figures are from Caesar Miniatures. First attempt at speed-painting: 20 minutes each figure, including priming, matt varnish ans basing, which is a good result compared to my snail painting standard. First time I tried the Army Painter quickshade, which allowed only base colours (no washing, no highlights). The result is not bad at all and you really can get a good looking army in little time. The only flaw is the annoying glossy effect left on the figures, which needs almost two layers of matt varnish to get rid of it. I look forward now to complete the army and test it against my Marian Roman.

Napoleonic French cuirassiers

Painted almost an year ago. A classic. Not one of my best work. Yet, Napoleonic cavalry always rock!
