Remember way back when I was talking about painting some Essex figures? Well I haven't forgotten. They're amongst the ever growing hodgepodge of a pile that it my painting table. I've previously posted one from a set of four and here are the other three in the set.
These are 15mm horses from Essex European Armies 1660-1745. They came with a limber, which I painted but can't post because I lost the bloody wheels.
Too show the difference in scale between a 32mm and a 15mm I thought I'd show this picture.
It is finally getting easier for me to work with different scales. I now paint 15mm, 18mm, 20mm. 25mm, 28mm and 32mm. That leaves 6mm, 10mm and 54mm for me to learn one day.
And I'd like to say
To Thanos over at Mininiatures and Terrain for nominating me for a Liebster Blog award.
Those of us that follow Thanos know how talented he is and we know how creative he is when it comes to scratch building terrain. I've gotten to know him through comments and through Facebook and was surprised to discover that he does not consider himself an artist. And those of you who know me know that this kind of a response generally prompts me to do something.
I've written a character into my story called Thano's Muse. She's a stunning figure sculpted by the renowned Tom Meier and I'm putting my heart and my soul into her. Perhaps she can help all of the great painters that I follow and learn from understand that what they do is art.
Well it's Sunday folks and that's the day I give thanks for the life that I have, the roof over my head and every scrap of food that's on my plate. So get up off that couch, turn off the telly and do something that makes you feel alive. I know I will.
