I just don't know how you can be so precise – every black line, every button, everything …

it's only an opinion- but just too pale a blue sorry.

Many thanks for the comments

@SHaT1984 They are 18mm figures and you have to highlight the details with a lighter tone.
I'd be delighted to see some of your figures ;-)

Yes , Rafa, that is definitely the point. Smaller figures need lighter colours if they are to be seen on the table.

Nicely done

very nice colour control, nice miniatures, but some of the cannons look kind of odd, maybe it is the perspective, but very wide frame – wheel to wheel distance and rather mall wheels.
