Back to the Brushes 248

Started on the next group of Confederate infantry for Fire and Fury and the like.

Additions to the growing Confederate force are coming on at a steady rate with artillery and cavalry planned for the future.

Cheers for now.

With a Rebel Yell 14

Cheers for now.

Back to the Brushes 247

Recently started a 30 days 30 miniatures Painting Challenge and these will be finishing up soon.

Gripping Beast Caetrati are the last skirmishers for the Caesarian Romans and the first for the Carthaginans.

Block painted over a light grey undercoat (Halfords grey primer to be correct) then washed with Army Painter Strong Tone.

The final stages will be to highlight the figures with the base coat colour before basing.

Cheers for now

With a Rebel Yell 13

Confederate infantry advancing from Old Glory. The command stand was painted earlier this year. 

The other five bases were painted during the first 30 days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge or was it the second.

The Old Glory figures have great character amd paint up well. There will be more of these sooner and later.

Cheers for now.

Fury of the North 23

So the figure is not a Norseman or Germanic Tribesman, nope he is a Briton or perhaps "the" Briton; Merlin. 

From Footsore Miniatures and to be honest a bugger to paint. Not because of the figure itself; the choice of colours picked just didn't sit well on the first run. The grey of the cloak had too much blue in it against the bone colour used.

So, repainted the cloak in Foundry Granite B, a murky grey/green colour. The whole figure was then washed in Army Painter Strong Tone and there you go.

More finished figures to follow shortly.

Cheers for now.

Back to the Brushes 247

Starting another 30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge tonight, 2nd November. Opting not to have a theme in this challenge as the free flowing approach suits better at present

The outline of the challenge is detailed below, however the main point being to have fun with your hobby.

  • To paint 30 figures of all shapes and sizes in 30 days
  • The figures can be partly painted at the start as the main point is to complete figures that have been forgotten
  • Basing is not necessary to count as completed
  • Any scale is good
  • Too have fun
  • The end date is set by your start date - 2nd December will be the end date of this challenge
  • To post updates as often as possible
  • Lastly to show a round up post with a group picture of everything.

Nothing to show yet, although the round up picture from the last challenge will be posted soon. 

Cheers for now
