American war of Independence 40mm Front Rank British officers and Continental infantry & command

 Just a small batch here this is my second to last batch of figures for this commission , 
Last to go are British light infantry and 2 cav plus some fences and that will be the end of painting 40mm
It was quite hard painting 40mm to start with but in the end it helped my with my brush work and lifted the level of my skill, it will be a bit sad to stop, but that is the way of commission work, the exciting part is you never quite know whats around the corner
 painting so much red means that i have that colour down 
and will never need to change the 4 paints i use




 I really like these guys for some reason

28mm Victrix Greek Hoplites first batch complete


Ok so this is my first batch, iv'e actually done a few more but i have a few thought on basing
Hail Caesar say i must have 4 rows of figures 24 figures and maybe i will do this but i quite like three rows myself ok i might add another 3 figures into these guys which will close them up a bit but 4 rows just doesnt do it for me, oh and these figures are not glued onto this base.

For those that don't know and are interested i have been posting on you tube for the past few months
if you subscribe to my channel that would be awesome,
Channel name is 15mm paint shack or type in kent Galpin both will take you to my videos

Really happy so far with the hand painted shields it might take me longer to do but in the end might just end up with 300 completely different shields, i have a few to many red shields in this batch so will swap a few out before a glue down with some green ones that i have started




so i have to put these aside for a couple of weeks and get some figures done and on there way to their owner.

28mm Sea People By Warlord games

This is the beginning of my Sea People army but at this stage it is my egyptian Allie 
there is a command stand and 4 stands of medium infantry i've mixed the armoured nd unarmoured figures on each stand to give a better look well i think it is.




1st stand
I layed 4 colours instead of 3 on each figure as i really wanted these guys 
to stand out i also did the skin tone slightly different to the Egyptians 


2nd stand



3rd stand

28mm New Kingdom Egyptian Chariot boxset


Hi Guys back here with the next installment of my Egyptian army this is the three chariot boxset
really pleased with the way they came ouy . I still need to to the reigns on two of them the red chariot has them done. To do the reigns i used a hot glue gun touched the glue to a piece of cardboard and dragged it along and touched cardboard again, this gave me thin thread of glue. Once dry i cut to the right length and with a tiny bit of super glue glued them both in to place doing the hands end first

 If you have any questions about the chariots or colours used please ask






 Here you can see the difference with the reigns i personally think its worth doing
