LoA 10s #3 - Irish Infantry - WIP 32h 00m & Studio Addition

Hi All,

Let me start with my new(much needed) addition to the studio, in the form of a height adjustable(electronic) table. This is the type designed for draftsmen enabling them to work sitting or standing. For me as a painter, it means I can get into an ideal sitting position with elbows on the table & hands on the mini at eye level. This avoids leaning over a table or both bad postural habits which lead to inevitable strains/injuries.

As for todays painting, not only have I completed all the Heavy Brown work, but also all the Buff highlighting!

Hi All,

It's been a long day in the studio. This morning was spent in front of the spray booth, applying the basecoats then highlights and finally brown base colour to all the Irish Infantry.

This afternoon I got the Vikings' metallic, dark leather/wood painted and washed; they look very dark.

LoA 10s #3 - Irish Infantry - WIP 2h 0m & Arabised Vikings

Hi All,

I hope you've all had a great weekend! I spent a lot of my weekend getting to grips with iMovie(film editing software), the result being that later this evening(once uploaded) I should have a long overdue video available on my channel, so keep you eyes peeled for that.

With the video, two new projects and organising more, its been a busy day in the studio. Following on from the Lesser Irish Infantry, the regulars are now poised for painting. I spent a large part of Friday and today prepping these for painting. Today I also got them undercoated, so they are ready for their basecoating tomorrow.

I also started an after hours project - 12, 25mm Arabised Vikings for use in the Saga wargame. These should be fun to paint, as they will be very colourful(in all senses of the work).

Below are some before/after pics of all these mini & some close-ups of the Arabised Vikings.
