Elite Miniatures Early Napoleonic Russian Jagers - Painted by Ben Fiene


OK I'm back again after two weeks away - sorry about that but work sometimes has to come first. Anyway the images I have placed up today were painted and photographed by Ben Fiene, a customer of mind. The figures are from the Elite Miniature range which I cast here at home. They are the classic Peter Morbey style - well animated and designed for table top gaming. However now days they are finding it hard to compete with some of the great figures now available on the market. But when painted well, as Ben has shown here, they make for a great little army. The figures seen are Russian Jagers from the Early Napoleonic Russian range and I will have to thank Ben sending the fine images through and allowing me to place them up on the blog.

Lovely worked displayed here. I originally found your blog during a search for pics of 15mm Sea Peoples.

I'll be checking in often and I hope you don't mind me adding a link on my own blog.

Thanks,

Why? The Elite figures are great especially the new British Napoleonic range you recently recieved. Great paint job Ben!

Wonderful work. The painting style provides enough detail for the fanatic but is well suited to wargaming. Always a difficult balance to achieve.
