The Vth Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge is over now, congratulations to Curtis for his mastering management of the event and thanks to all the entrants for their participation and comments!
Visitors please follow the link below to see all the marvels presented this year!
now the pics of my last submission:
a pick and mix of the figures I needed to participate at some tournaments.
the Gladiators From Gripping Beast for JUGULA:
to continue my " Give them a second life " project (yes a freaky long term wish!), the pictures of the old figures I have painted many years ago; I peeled off their bases, "re-undercoated" directly on the varnish and repainted them before rebasing and flocking them.
The 15mm Essex Miniatures Sumerian with few Chariot Miniatures mixed were painted in the late 90' on a black undercoat, after a white coat spray and a short time in "thefrenchjester's bath" (a brown wash bath in fact), some paint work later I have the command bases and all the carts done, the infantry will take more time, ;-)).
The final words are for the special troopers of the Thematic Byzantine 15mm Essex Miniatures range, the command figures are from Outpost Miniatures range;
I firstly undercoated them in white, tried a test figure painting = unsatisfied by the result!
then I undercoated them in black, tried a drybrush painting on one figure = still unsatisfied by my work!
so I tried a brown coat on the figures = No comment!!
after a break I decided to get back to a Black coat (after a fourth coat of spray I cannot still continue to speak of undercoat now!) and paint them in a more classical "Base+Highlight" painting.
This weekend my "Mathias Corvinus Hungarian black army" will fight in the German Open at Braubach near Coblence.
Be seeing you;-)
