Hi guys, for various reasons I have been in a bit of a hobby slump lately, and have been uming and aring about what to work on to get out of it, and have decided on painting my 15mm Bavarian collection, I have painted a few of these AB Bavarians before for my mate, and did a good job, but I want these ones for my collection to be the best I can do, these are about 60%-70% done, I have never done Non Metalic metals before, so was thinking of trying it on these, but to be honest I get a little nervous trying new techniques. These will be for the 2nd infantry Regt, with yellow lacing. I think the details on the faces are a little soft, I may need to do some more washes, to bring out the details, these are all ABs except one of the standard bearers, and the sapper, all comments welcome

Great looking figs, if i could paint face,s as good as you i,d be very happy, i carn,t even get near to that standard on 28s.
Not used those paints before but it,s always worth experimenting. Will watch your progress on these,

Very nice work. Some of the best 15mm I have seen. But I have chosen 6mm for my nappies…

Gunner – Nice job; always been a big fan of your work since I saw those AB Peninsula 95th Rifles advancing through a doormat wheatfield. I particularly like the fact that your cornflower blue is not too light (a common error among wargamers and artisits); yours appears to have a bit of dark grey in it, which I suspect this comes from the black basecoat, and is close to surviving uniforms and bolts of unused cloth from the period.

Thanks SM, I chose that shade of blue after long consideration, for its accuracy, I did resist the temptation to use a lighter blue, artisticly, I really do like the lighter blue, but as you said, this shade is more accurate.
