And it will probably be very infrequent  lol

I got the Perrys infantry boxed set a while ago now but as reward for getting the Chinese commission done I painted one up that I had built before Christmas  ::)

Pale green and pale blue will be the retinue colours of Sir John Aspley of Guilford and one of his household is below  :)

I've gone for a darker armour on these to try and give the impression of blackened armour that's seem plenty of action, seems to have worked but probably not the best figure to try it on.




I've got a free picture editor on the pad and had a play, turned out better than the original so I'm happy for now.

Obviously they are never going to be as good as Richards (talented git) but they'll do for me  :D

cheers

James

That's really nice though- it would more than do for me :)

Looking good. Quick question; how did you do the wood? I'm trying to get that effect with a light brown wash, wondering if your way was easier.

Really very nice James, but I think you'll need a couple more.  ;)

Thanks chaps, very encouraging  :)

It's the leather brown triad from Foundry but then with a thin coat of Base Sand on top.

Really very nice James, but I think you'll need a couple more.  ;)

I know, I know...  lol

Nice work, but don't think I didn't notice that you'd waited until Richard had said he'd finished  :o

A cunning plan is hatched:
Let the other boys finish theirs first and they wont notice how slow you are because they have already moved on to something else.
Genius!
 ;)

And a great start.
Lovely jobbie, Jibbly!

Shit, I was hoping no-one would notice  lol

Nice! But what has happened to the castle you were working on a while back?

It's in the same state as most other stuff I've started for myself, in a state of in-completion  :D

cheers
