Before I proceed with the rest though I want to paint some samples from Fife and Drum. I'm thinking those are going to paint up quite a bit faster. I'm not terribly happy with my brush work or technique on these four but I haven't really been in full blown paint mode for a while either. I hope everything will really speed up once I dig in for the long hall.
There are a couple of things to distract me though. I need to finish the Lt Winters miniature for ReaperCon, try and get the M4A1 76 finished as well. I would still like to get a diorama together but I'm just not sure I can pull that off on top of everything else. Also I have all those Americans and Germans from the Brigade Games kickstarter to get done. I'm going to work the Germans first and try out some airbrush techniques to achieve a faster tabletop paint job.
So here are the results of my first AWI miniatures:
|I was well into the painting and they were looking pretty rough before I remembered to snap a few pictures.|
|For the Breeches!|
|A slightly different take on the flesh|
|A bit farther along|
|And finished, still need to be based but good enough for a mug shot|
|I think they will rank up pretty good. I also think the blue needs to be quite a bit darker.|
