Landsknecht Painting Guide
« on: September 15, 2012, 11:24:51 AM »
Some of you may be aware that I put together a Landsknecht Painting Guide a few years ago, i've been using it myself recently to help with a few Almains for my Tudor army and have added some more updates to the gallery pages and have added a few more hints and tips to the homepage.

It's nothing too special and a bit rough and ready if i'm honest but i thought i'd advertise it here for anyone who is a bit intimidated by the prospect of painting these troops or if you've ran out of colour schemes.

You can view it here;

I make periodic additions to it and will let you know of any big changes.


All the best

A really exceptional piece of work mate. Thanks for taking all the time and trouble to put this together and then for being so magnanimous as to share. Exquisite as these figures are, they are a challenge for me to paint.  And with painting time at a premium, your post will certainly help me cut out some of the trial & error with hit & miss, dodgy paint schemes. Thanks again.

I had seen your guide before and thought it excellent.  My one request would be to please note what manufacturers made the various examples you painted.

There's a 'disclaimer' of sorts on the front page which mentions the manufacturer;

'The miniatures I have used in this guide are from Wargames Foundry’s Renaissance range. I also use their brushes and, in particular, their paint system; this is specifically designed to work in up to three stages from dark to light and suits my painting style exactly. This is not an intentional advertisement for Foundry, merely the use of figures and materials which I find work well for me. '

All the best

Stuart
