Hi All,

I hope you had a great Easter!

As a shameless plug  Embarrassed (& hopefully something you guys would like to see), I present my weekly commission showcase YouTube Vlog (primarily Pendraken SYW minis ATM).

This week Iíve been working on mostly Spanish with some Austrian artillery. The Spanish Hussars are from an earlier period (WAS), which look great, so were included (my customer's words not mine)!

These are painted to my basic standard (basecoat, highlight or wash, varnish). I hope you like these regular updates. I'm considering adding more painting tutorials  :-. If anyone would like to see those, please show me some encouragement.

Check them out on my YouTube channel:

You're right, Mickey - absolutely shameless!  Tongue

And as for the standard of painting - absolutely nothing to be ashamed about! These are very good! Thumbs up

Now let me see, too late for my SYW collection but perhaps I could start another period ........  Undecided

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Hi Mickey,

Some really nice figures.   The one thing that stood out for me in particular
was the finish you achieved on the Austrian guns.  The whole colour scheme
(yellow brown with black metalwork and bronze barrels) works very well.

Are you able to tell us how this was achieved or is it a trade secret ?
