2 Warfare Battalions...After

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Lovely work from both artist and gardener! Who are they going to be?

Bob,
that looks fantastic :D

Bill,
It looks for me that he does not hiding behind the gravestone but instead scribling something on it :wink:

Andy's style is really nice. I particularly like: flat but warm tones on the large clothing areas, soft flesh tones which appear very natural in the day light of Bob's shot.

Toggy's now own's more painted Warfare stuff than I do! Meglomaniac!

Shucks, thanks guys :D

I think the basing really helps here, mainly because it distracts your eye from my mistakes! And the figures are also very easy to paint with good details where necessary and nice flat bits to work on too. So, I wouldn't dream of taking all the credit here.

Thanks for posting them Bob.

I painted them as Embdy's Dragoons - as in, whose Hob-nobs are those? Oh, Embdy's :lol:

Good bases make well painted miniatures outstanding! You both did a spectacular job.

Very nice Andy and Bob, you've both made a fine job of the dragoons.
Now we just need someone to produce the dismounted command :wink:
Cheers
