Austrian Napoleonic Ordnance


I recently painted one of the very nice 28mm artillery models from Leopold Diez. These are very hard to find outside of Germany. This is my attempt to produce the yellow-ochre colour used by Austria. It is washed in Seraphim Sepia from Citadel to both shade and darken the ochre.

I was trying to match the Caisson painted for me by Leuthen Studios who also painted the 6-horse team and the Perry 6 pounder and crew.

Dr Stephen Summerfield has just posted on TMP that the ochre is correct but the barrels should be unpolished bronze metal.

  4. Wow! Perfect Ochre color. Love the paintwork on the crews as well. Yes, the barrels should be bronze, but otherwise, these look absolutely authentic.
