Pour l'Empereur!

Salut à Tous,

un tutoriel pour l'Empereur qui me demandait il y a quelque temps comment récupérer des figurines peintes il y a fort, fort longtemps!

j'ai donc repris quelques figurines d'hoplites que j'ai barbouillé à la gouache à mes débuts dans les années 90
voici le processus de remise à niveau en images pour lui et aussi pour vous qui passez me voir. 

Hi all,

here is a tutorial about a question that "The Emperor asked me sometime ago: " How can we repaint our old toys?"

So I returned in my lead mountain, took some old ugly hoplites I basically painted in the 90', you'll see it in pictures below with some explanations.

I took some old hoplites from Essex Miniatures I did'nt use for ages:

I peeled off the spears I put to replace the lead spears, then the figures were cut off from their bases.

 I directly sprayed the figures on the cardboard where I glued them, firtsly with a black coat then with a mournfang brown spray coat of Citadel spray cans.
Edit: I forgot to write that I have washed them in the Jester bath
of course I have prepared the same number of new hoplites to drown the old hoplites in the new ones.

 A brushwork on all of them (you can recognize the good old toys by the static grass hidden with some paint) and the help of the Little Big Men Studios transfers.

a long time spent on basing due to the necessity of mixing the old ones and the new ones.
( few close up to see how it is in the end).

I'll be happy if you can leave your comments on this tutorial.

Be seeing you;-)

then another batch of steppe cavalry for my project one hundred horses and one donkey to guide them on the field!", this time it is the mongols from Essex Miniatures and Donnington Miniatures, I'll paint many more of them very soon
