WOW! Beautiful miniatures. Perfect colours and the “white man” has much character.

Thanks fellas! :) I sure know how to lift my spirits! :D

The Khaki is based around Vallejo Green Ochre by the way, lightened up with Iraqui Sand and Darkened with German Cam. Medium Brown or by washing it with a watered down Devlan Mud.

By the way, RJ, the Adventurer is painted using your skin tones... I quite like it.

Thanks fellas! :)

I wouldn't usually make such a fuss over a cow, but I count this as an achievement. :) On the one hand, this cow kicked my arse back to painting... On the other it is the very first horse-like animal I've ever painted and I do consider this to be a horse painting exercise. I am glad to say that it turned out quite well.



Last time I took some pictures for a friend, he told me, he thought they were darker than usual. At first I thought it was the outside light not playing along, but now I know it was one of my lamps. I've since bought new light bulbs and I must say that they are doing their work quite well.

These did not take as long as the last post might suggest, but I moved really slowly from tiny painting session to minuscule painting session. Still, finally another 4 are done and now only one or two remains for my first T&T group.



So here is the little group so far.



Photos are not that great, but I'd rather post something again than succumb to my I-can't-be-arsed-eness.


Comments are always welcome. :)

Slow progress is still progress, you have to tell yourself that (that's what I do, anyway). Keep at it if you can, even if it is only in small doses.  We'll not lose you to the can't-be-arsed-ness. I won't have a man left behind. I won't let it happen. Not on my watch...  lol


Looking really good. I especially like the expression on the bugler's face. And there's nowt wrong with the photos that I can see.
