Took advantage of the nice weather this afternoon to get some spray varnish on a load of figures painted and based over the last several months (at least)

Renaissance Irish




Elizabethan English and single based fantasy




Sengoku Japanese





Blackgate Ogres

Good work, I always end up having a big backlog build up before I get around to varnishing.

Thanks all

Yep, not quite sure why, maybe itís needing to wait for the right weather to spray things Iíve moved mainly to brush undercoat and varnish. But a good spray varnish coat helps to seal in the flock as well as give another layer of protection to the figures.

Yeah that's probably part of it. I did try a brush on varnish for a while but it was just too much work for doing a lot of figures. I tend to use brush on primer myself, or airbrush. I can't generally get aerosols delivered to me so would have to go to a physical shop and to be honest, air/paint brush is handier. Will have to give airbrush varnish a go once my physically purchased can of varnish runs out.

Good stuff - I might have to try printing sashimono and banners for my 15mm Samurai when I get around to doing them.

Thanks Dave. I highly recommend printing the sashimono, they go on very easily, much simpler than decals.

Got some figures based up

Sohei and Samurai



It took an age to do the 8 cavalry. Iíve got 15 yari armed mounted Samurai in progress, they might take a while to finish...

And some WWI Trailleurs Senegalese



These are a few extras to round out a Regiment for GWSH.
