Here is this month's task - get cracking on this square - I started a couple of companies ages ago but my painting has got better in the interim and I want to go back and redo most of them.
The vast majority of the figs are the very excellent Victrix, bolstered with a few Perrys, and a smattering of Eagle to make up the front row (any leftover kneeling figs anyone?).
This weekend I really feel I made a breakthrough with painting faces. Previously, in every hundred figures maybe 4 (by fluke) were ok, 50 were passable, and the rest were poor. Now, however, I feel I have finally cracked faces and, though they are still miles away from the likes of Oniria (whose tutorial was key), I feel much more confident and am very pleased with the improved consistancy.
The grenadier company serjeant below is a conversion - adding a pike to a grenadier arm (neither Victrix nor Perry make a plastic grenadier serjeant). The offiicer to his right is another hybrid - Perry head, Victrix body, Perry right arm, Victrix left arm (from the Highlanders set).
