so having recently had a crazy busy new year and a big old family one at that, i have spent the last week and a half catching up on painting and personal projects.
Below, first, is my latest completed commission. these two cool cats are as gangster as my imagination gets, i originally intended to finish these in sports tops but the extreme curves and waves in the top made it a little hard to paint the logo's etc. so instead i finished them with just a red color.
Next is one of my favorite and most challenging commissions to date. This commission consists of two small later war (ww1) forces. given the beautiful details on the miniatures, and the plethora of different straps, flasks and bags i had to limit my creativity here (due to the job being a troop standard paint job). I decided to use a simplistic representative theme for both force.
i literally struggled pinning down the color of the German uniform for days, lots and lots of googling and looking for authentic uniform photos. eventually i found a website with many definitive photos confirming for me it was not a grey green but in fact almost a catachan green. let's just say i was glad to find those.
a group shot of the germans and the british also. (one german has been dipped, see if you can spot him!)
Expect more updates before i finish these guys this week. i have also been working hard on personal projects, and that will be in the next post.
