It is nice to see that your painting skills live up to your sculpting skills. On another note, any chance of more modern french figures from you?

Really nice figures indeed.

May I suggest a number ink wash to bring out the facial details?

Best wishes,

Good Morning.

Mr Crynns got me into this and it is initially tricky.

Less is more as they say.

A light inking brings out the details in the mould.

Do not use a lot and preferably watch out for eye sockets filling up. I flick it out of them.

I use Game wash 73.203 Lavado Sombra , umber wash.

I like dirty soldiers, so filthy hands etc look good to my way of thinking.

Practise will make perfect.

Best wishes,

Chris

Now the 90 soldiers of my compagny... 9 groups of 10 men, (1 man is missing, in one group, I will create him soon).
For me the best french figures in 1/72... I used some of my production in white metal, and some of conversion of caesar and pegasus.
