I recently commissioned some 15mm Marshalls from Old Glory to top off some of my command stands for 15mm Napoleonic gaming. When I originally visited his website, I mainly saw 28mm sci-fi/fantasy painting. Still, the guys brush work was excellent. So a quick note later and agreeing to terms I sent off 22 mounted figures for his attention.

-turn around time was less than two weeks.
-communication was consistent, timely and informative. Pictures were included
-brush work was EXCELLENT
-Included at no cost extras (handpainted flags, scratch-built flag topper, etc)
-basing was included in our agreed pricing

-Really none.

Minor overspray on basing/flocking easily fixed. Its close enough to the rest of my style but *when* i next use John to paint some additional figures, I will just ask to omit this step so I can match what I already have.

If you are in the market for quality paint work I can heartily recommend The Battle Brush

Just happened to be passing through this site, but can I just second that?

I know "everyone does" Facebook, but some of us want nothing to do with what can result and will avoid it like the Plague

Hello Chaos, just stumbled on this thread, I remember well the 15mm Napoleonic Marshalls. Lovely figures, pleasure to paint. I'm British by birth, but live in the USA, moved here a coupla years back to marry a beautiful local girl, waaaaaay outta my league!
I'm ‘the Battle Brush' ‘Battle Brush studios is another company, they do lovely stuff. I chose battle brush, coz it sounds like ‘Basil Brush' a much beloved tv puppet show from my youth! Hahaha!
Thank you for the kind comments, I try to balance quality, turnaround time, and price, have a lot of work, and, most importantly, repeat customers, so it must be going well. This is my job now, done my first year, paid my taxes, I'm all legit.
Hunt me down on fb, or instagram, or mail me on;

Hahaha, I meant to start the above reply with ‘Hello Chaps' not ‘Hello Chaos!' Damn auto-correct! The fact it corrected ‘Chaps' to ‘Chaos' says more about me, than it, I suspect! Lols.
