Meanwhile back in the SYW

Readers may remember that I occasionally play 25mm SYW games with my friend Ron and sometimes paint a few of his figures. To that end here is a sample Minifig Scots Grey.

  1. Minifigs do have a charm all of their own (especially the horses for some reason) - unlike you I have never been able to capture it when I paint them! Very nice.

    1. Thanks! I take little if any credit for the charm as it is merely realizing last year that they respond better to block painting without shading. Luckily I've never taken to black undercoat.

    1. Mine too although when they switch from the S ranges to the fat figures I switched to Garrison.

  6. Nice brushwork Ross -- a wonderful looking figure too.

  7. I'm afraid the days when I could do a detailed grenadier cap on a nicely shaded 15mm figure are long gone, luckily those old 25mm Minifigs respond best to a simple style.
