Here's a selection of close ups of the mini's that I've painted thus far (I know, not too many!).

You can read about how they were painted as well as seeing many 360 degree pics (or sorts) on my Just Add Water blog here:


In the meantime here are some pics to hopefully whet your appetitie:

Very nice!

Those are awfully good! I use a warm,medium grey for the base ,then a very light khaki and finally off white--all craft paints. I love the figures but the weak bayonets give me fits.

Lovely figures.

Really like the blue colour, is it a Foundry Blue?

Also, what length did you go with for the flag-pole?

Great paint jobs and lovely figures. But weren't flag poles too unwieldy to be held with only one hand, especially when the colours were fully unfurled? Full disclosure, I have several one handed flag bearers myself.

Isn't the colour upside down ?
