A comparison and pictures of my 2x100 piece League of Augsburg 15mm Irregular Miniatures armies. With tutorial how to speedpaint the figures so that they can pose as Bavarians, Irish, Dutch, French or English units.

Great post, OP. I don't care for painting either. When I paint small figures I need to remind myself not to get bogged down in small details that no one is going to see.

Very effective, the Irregular figures are good but ‘impressionistic' compared to many ranges but it means they look better with a more impressionist paint-job. I think your approach is well suited to the figures.
I like ‘nostalgia' figures for this very reason, i.e. if the detail is not all cast on the painting can be much looser yet still create a good look. IMO Highly detailed figure sculpts demand a highly detailed (and accurate) paint job.

Great post and much appreciated. I have LoA armies in 6mm, 10mm and 15mm scales. All unpainted. I've tried to selloff the 15mm armies unsuccessfully and have been painted to just speed paint them to sell or game with. Your post is an inspiration.

Great post.

My mantra is I paint to play, not display!

Thanks for sharing.
