|Grrrrr, off with you Frenchies!|
Phew, it's hot! Just to prove that I have not been idle on the commission painting front here is the latest batch towards Graham's Edgehill project. Really enjoyed painting these, some great character pieces in there from Peter Pig plus a few Matchlock Miniatures. I think there a few more to finish this project yet!
This weekend I will be prepping up more 10mm fantasy figures for Simon, again some wonderful pieces to be painted including Lizards with spears and shields and what looks like Goblins riding huge Boars, delightful. I also have more to do for John that I hope get started on later this week before turning my attention back to two 20mm WSS foot regiments for Tony. I also have a new commission for a couple of 2mm scale Ancient DBA armies and I'm very keen to see what I can do with these. There are also some Napoleonics in this scale which came about as a result of my posts on the 2mm FB group. I have no wish to blow my own trumpet but they were described as the 'Best painted 2mm figures I have seen anywhere in this scale', so yep, I'll gladly take that!
Yesterday I settled down to paint these six Scots Greys, a very nostalgic experience for me and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Again there are areas of soft detail on the fronts and back but they still paint up very well and I'm certainly very happy with them. I'm happy plodding along with these in the background, just being able to quickly paint a couple of strips to make a 20 man base is vert therapeutic and I have so much choice from the sprues in the drawer. I think next I'm going to try a base of Dutch line infantry using French strips and head swap officers as seen on the Epic FB group page, most effective.
