Panoceania Knights & Characters - 28mm - Infinity

Hi All,

This week I continued a commission for a growing (painted) army of Panoceania Knights from the Infinity range by Corvus Belli. Some conversion work had been completed be my customer & all had to be stripped of paint prior to painting. The final mini below (torso) was a piece of touch-up work (shoulder pads, including decals I made & NMM sword).

I always enjoy working on these minis, I love to add the OTT contrasting colours & NMM their known for.
The commission didn't include painting the bases (customer will do that) & the colour scheme was chosen to match current minis in my customer's range.

10mm Pendraken SYW Prussians & French

Hi All,

This week I’ve have some special 10mm minis on my commission table. ‘Old Fritz & Staff’ along with some of his finest Cuirassiers. Also some of Frances finest guard cavalry plus a Louis XIV coach & horses (painted as a birthday gift to a longstanding customer). Free-handed 3D curtains on the coach, love those!

As always you can see more of these on YouTube!

10mm Pendraken SYW Ottomans

Hi All,

This week I have some more 10mm minis on my commission table. Ottomans being the focus of the week. After NMM training last week (with Tommie Soule), I was fired up to get some painting done. I really enjoyed these, as a lot of the colours I could use my artistic licence on.

This week I have some more 10mm minis on my commission table. Starting out with some Scottish Jacobites (inc., the bonny prince, from Irregular Miniatures). Also, more regiments of Ottomans.

Panoceania Magister Hospitaller Knights - 28mm - Infinity

Hi All,

This week I completed a new commission for a group of Panoceania Magister Hospitaler Knights from the Infinity range by Corvus Belli. This range of minis is currently (for some time now) my favourite miniatures on the market & one I love to paint personally.

The commission didn't include painting the bases (customer will do that) & the colour scheme was chosen to match current minis in my customer's range. I think the combination of blue/red/green looks great though!

I'll let the pics (below) do the talking!

10mm Pendraken SYW Prussians, British, Austrian & Ottoman

Hi All,

I hope you've all had a great Christmas & New Years!

I started back to work this week with some 10mm Pendraken SYW (great start to the year).

A few things to note, I've redesigned the look of my pics (see below). I've edited out the cork I use for holding the minis while painting & added in a black background. I have also experimented with pics of different scales, some only having 5 minis in to make them larger.

I did experiment with some washes with many of these minis, mainly in areas like the skin. The results are good but take longer. I think the wash is best kept for a higher level of painting, were an additional highlight can be added on top.

As always please check out my YouTube update of these minis!
