Back to the Brushes 281

 A few work in progress pics of what is currently getting some painting time. 

The first pic is of Foundry Caesarian Romans and a Gripping Beast  Cornicen from their currently out of production Caesarian range. 


More from Gripping Beast this time with Norman or Christian Spanish Crossbowmen for El Cid. The figure at the far left as viewed on screen is now complete. 



Lastly there are the first of the Compagnie Franches de la Marine from the moulds of AW Miniatures and lurking at the very back are Warlord Games Prussian Landwehr. Three of the Landwehr are now finished. 

 The blues on the Marines have been done in two very different ways. 

 

On the left, the blue has been painted with Citadel Contrast Ultramarines Blue and highlighted with Calgar blue and on the right with Foundry Napoleonic French blue triad in layers. The jury is still out on both colours and methods of painting and will trial the Contrast paint again on another two figures with a the wraith-bone under coat. 

Hope that this has been of interest.

Cheers for now

You have a lot on your plate. AW Miniatures FIW figures? I need to investigate.

A heady mix of periods and uniforms. Coming along very nicely indeed.

Wow - you certainly have a lot of irons in the fire, Ross! Looking good.
