Beautiful painting. Really top notch. Out of interest, what size bases are you using?
Hi Paul, i was going to use 60mmx 40mm bases with 6 figures on a base so with 36 figs it
will be a 120mm x 120mm square, not sure about other units yet but i have 200 of these to
paint from various manufacturers so that will keep me busy

Beautifully done - I'm painting the same at the moment and getting nothing like this level of detail or character.

Look forward to seeing more
Hi Khartoum2, i have used mostly GW contrast paints with a fine brush which gives
a great result, the detail is there, will see when the metals show up what results i can get

Brian: sounds good. Those are the same size bases I use for 6 figures. In my opinion, they give a good density of figures. When I saw your first pictures I was afraid that the figures were on their finished bases, and I thought that they looked just that bit too far apart.

Looking great! Loving the variety!

(And the Contrast paints are a lifesaver when painting Renaissance figures, aren't they?)

Lovely work,

but can I ask why only two at a time? I have not used contrast paints so is it a quick drying ink?

Cheers

Hi Matt, i have decided to paint one or two at a time so i can finish as i go so to speak as
the patterns can take quite a while to paint,up to 1 hour per finished figure, i usually paint between 16-20 figs at a time but this
can be quite boring like painting 20 faces followed by 20 swords for example so i decided to
change my way of painting for a while
the contrast paints take maybe 5 mins to dry depending on how thick you put it on, maybe longer
painting over white gives a great pastel colour and over grey a more muted colour but only stronger
colours will work properly over grey i found like browns and greens and medium to dark blue
hope this helps

What a great thread and very nice looking miniatures. Not only that, but this thread also serves as great inspiration. I find that I always spent a ton of time figuring out what colors and combination to use when painting landsknechts.


Cheers

Fine looking landsknechtes.
Can't wait to see them form up their Fähnlein.
