I have started painting a 15 mm Spanish WSS army. It is a white uniform regiment and I have posted a video on youtube with the painting process, maybe you want to take a look at it and maybe give me some advice for the next ones. Greetings!

Wow. Impressive. I'm going to try some of your techniques.

Nicely done! I have taken to starting with a light grey undercoat and then highlight; I like your approach

I have enjoyed your painting very much.
(For next Spanish unit I propose Boccherini to you, only for variety).
Many thanks.

@jdpintex Thank You! This is very flattering

@Frederick Thank You! In the next video on the subject, I start with black primer… :) I hope you also find it interesting because it gives very good results.

@Dschebe Very good suggestion, I did not know this composer! Thanks for pointing it out. Also I think it does not violate Youtube's Copiryght rules, so I'm sure I'll listen to it while painting and include it in some video. Thank you!

allTMP Thanks to everyone who took an interest in the post, and to those who visited the video afterwards – you can tell there's a great community of participatory miniatures players here!

Nice work. You have much more patience than I do and it shows.

Thank you all for your comments.
I have uploaded a new video of a similar unit, this time approaching it from a different perspective; priming in black.

very interesting, you could apply your metals after you varnished the miniatures, would save quite a bit of time, you put a huge effort into your painting which is showing, I am using less care and prefer a more warm white instead of a cold one as you do.

Yes, it would save me time, but I prefer to put the metals in two sessions because that way the previous layer serves as a shading layer. In the second coat, already varnished, except on large surfaces such as the guards of the swords, I try to put only the necessary points to give brightness.

Your choice of colors is superb!
