    Beautiful work as always but I really liked the way you’d gone about producing the Danzig Burgermilitar

    Cheers for you kind comment Jim, I am going to do a couple more city militia as I like the flexibility in the choice of uniforms as I can make them up.

    It’s not made up, it’s research.  Ancient armies have had army lists produced with far less evidence than you’ve got for Danzig Burgermilitar

    (Trust me, I’m probably as guilty as anybody 🙂   )

    I really don’t know anything about this period. However your brush work is outstanding. I’ve enjoyed looking at your painted miniatures. Thank you for sharing.

    Cheers Ian, I seem to be on a roll with these figures I find them quick and easy to paint and I am glad you enjoy looking at them.

    David at “Not by Appointment” blog sent me some excellent flags this morning, so I retrofitted both Irish battalions with new flags.

    Cheers for you kind comment Jim.

    Here is todays effort, Schaumburg-Lippe-Bückeburg Infantry using Zvezda 20mm GNW plastic figures.  Not a perfect match but near enough for me.

    All you need now is the big campaign to use them all 🙂
    They’re stunning!

    Schaumburg-Lippe grenadier battalion, 20mm Zvedva plastic figures.  Uniforms are my imagination and artistic licence.

    It’s only the knowledge that I couldn’t paint to anything like this standard stops me dashing out and buying the figures 🙂

    Gorgeous

    Thanks Jim for your kind comment and support, go and buy yourself some of the Hat figures.   As they have raised detail they are easy to paint, the Rot Wurzburg battalion was painted with white undercoat, then washed with a linen acrylic paint, ink earthshade and contrast technical mix.  After that it was just adding the details.
