40mm AWI independence test figures, and 28mm Carthiginian test figures

When i start a new job i always do test figures to make sure that i'm happy with how the figures turn out but also to make sure that whoever i'm painting for is happy with the colour's of uniforms 
 With these guys i wanted to make sure that my style of painted was good for 40mm, i decided to do 7 layers of colour instead of my normal 3 -4 still only three colours but the middle colour has 5 layers of watered down to give a smoother finish and a better layering of colour

These are Victrixs figures they have great detail but i must admit i do love painting metal 
so will be happy when they are all completed and sent on their way

28mm Front Rank Napoleonic British light cav and life guards cav

 these guys are some of my favorite for some reason they just appeal to me the buff facings
just catch the eye, I hope that Reg is as happy with them as i am. So now i need to get them based ready to head to their new home

Here we have some British Life Guards i had so much fun painting its a shame that the photos don't show how nice the red came out, i gave it four layers instead of my normal three and they really pop.

28mm WarLord Games Napoleonic Russian command stands completed

 These guys have been sitting around in a box for far to long, thew figures are Warlord Games and even though they are not my favourite Napoleonic miniatures i thought they came out quite good , I added an extra layer of green to make them pop a little more, These figures complete the Russians for now next is British light Cav.

28mm front rank Russian Ulhans

 Well here we are again completed these guys  a few weeks back and posted them off was really pleased with the completed figures, Front Rank really do make wonderful figures

i have completely repainted them for Justin
 working on lava flow
 My son picked this figure up on  a trip to see his girlfriend he's was fun to paint

a blood angel figure that i though what the heck ill give it a try

 the next three photos are of a test figure i've done for my sons eldar army

 My son is starting to pile on the figures you don't want to see what i picked up for him for his birthdayso many figures this is just a tiny part of it they are all painted as blood angels or not painted at all so heaps to do i've started by air brushing some base coats.
