First painted figure in maybe 3 years

Conflict between the Swedes and their various neighbours between 1670s and 1721. Including topics on Danes, Saxons, Saxon-Polish, Russians and anyone else the boys in blue were mixing it with!

First painted figure in maybe 3 years

Post by raggedroyalist » Sat Jul 11, 2020 5:46 pm

I've sat down and got to grips with the loss of my painting mojo and think I have broken the back of it.

Here is a Warfare Miniatures Prussian Musketeer, converted into a Sergeant with a Crann Tara Spontoon. I used Foundry, GW, Valejo, P3 and Army Painter paints in the project. More to come I hope.

cheers

Chas

That’s a nice way to find your mojo!
I’m sure we all go through phases of can’t be bothered, except for Hilton but he’s not human so doesn’t count.
