Friesland and Friesham

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!

Friesland and Friesham

Post by Gunfreak » Wed Dec 09, 2015 3:39 pm

So I've now used up all my Warfare miniatures figures, in the end 96 was painted, with 50 beeing Dutch and the rest being Swedish. Here are the Dutch, Friesheim I've posted before, the new unit is Friesland.

I had two conflicting sources for Friesland, one had them in dark blue and red, the other in sky/cornflower/Bravarian blue and red, I chosed a light but not quite sky blue, blue, Mostly because I've had this blue triad from foundry laying around and never really got to use it(It's actualy Napoleonic Prussian gun blue)

I liked the resault is nice I think, even if It's not 100% correct.

These are beautifully painted. A lot of work - well done.

The only suggestion I would make is perhaps to paint up the base edges as these draw attention away from your superb painting.

Looking forward to seeing more of your figures.
