10mm Risk Pieces painted up for Napoleon in Europe

There was a recent thread on TMP about using 10mm Risk Pieces for Napoleonic Gaming. I painted hundreds of these up for the old Eagle Games “Napoleon in Europe” about 8 years ago.

Our games club had a great deal of fun with NiE. I painted up all of the nationalities using the 3 poses available, even the Ottomans. Of course, I had to fudge on the headgear as the standard shako is a stretch for several of the nationalities, but thats the best one can do with only 3 poses available. They were an inexpensive way to dress up NiE, as I hated the look of the larger plastic figs for the game. The plastic risk pieces were primed white and then painted to their proper colors.
