I like both entries.

@Stevedaccs

I consider to get the copplestone British too for my east africa project. Can they mixed with brigade? Perhabs even in the same unit?

A lot of detail in those 15mm, good work Tomsche! Now learn to take advantage of sunny weekdays  ;)

@aeneas - both the brigade minis and the copplestone minis are lovely sculpts - copplestone is a little inconsistent with scale and his british are at the top end of the 28mm range so they are a bit bigger than the brigade figures, but not distressingly so. I personally would use them in the same army but might not use them in the same unit

@tomsche - that is a lovely entry tomsche - my own efforts at 15mm have been pathetic and I understand how difficult it is to get the colours and the detail to stand out the way you have done so - seeing those makes me think I ought to have another try. We have worked hard at the photography side this time (I am fortunate that my son, Edd, is very interested in photography so he has done the photos for me). A big improvement for us has been to use 2 desk lamps with daylight bulbs (11/12 watt equivalent, E27) - all of the photos are done in the evening and this seems to give a consistent light source (we use flash too). We do not seem to have many sunny days here!

Once the round is over, I`ll post a better picture of a single stand of british.  The technique is actually a souped down `dallimore` method, using only 2 instead of 3 colours on 15s, as the third highlight gets mostly waisted anyways in the `1 foot rule` for wargaming models on such small scale in my opinion

This is very true. Although I still use about three levels of highlighting even on 15mm minis, you can be a lot more brutal going about it. Actually you should be brutal otherwise it simply won't show.

When painting 15mm you definitely need to be bold!  lol
