Front Rank 28mm Spanish Tercio of Toledo "Old Blues"

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!

Front Rank 28mm Spanish Tercio of Toledo "Old Blues"

Post by chema1986 » Wed Apr 16, 2014 2:03 pm

Hello Gentlemen, I have recently painted another "Tercio" for my Spanish army, The "old blues" from Toledo. These are Front Rank figures, like the majority of my forces. The basis of the Spanish infantry of the war of the League of Augsburg on the Catalonian front were 5 veteran tercios: Seville, Madrid, Leon, Cordova and Toledo.
I hope you like them :)

Fantastic. The Officer with the half-pike is giving me an evil glare from the corner of his eye - that's awesome :lol:

Hello Gunfreak, I used GW Paints for the blues and reds. In particular "regal blue" as a base, and later highlighted with "enchanted blue" and normal white. Sadly these paints are now out of production... so when I run out of them I'll be in a trouble :cry:
