Re: My latest unit

I am the lucky man who commissioned this unit plus the 2 Guns of position which Paul has put photo's on elsewhere. This is painted as Churchill's Rgt on campaign using Front Rank's early period figures. What Paul has not shown is the wagons on the 2nd bases that go with the guns, and put together th...

Re: Sri Lanka Painters

Thanks for that Joe, food for thought. I have had a quote from Fernando and Philgregg and both seem very thorough in their dealings. The prices are very good for large quantities of figures, a great advantage when you are keen to get started on a new period. Seems quite a battle of words going on th...

Re: Sri Lanka Painters

I'd certainly go along withy Gunter's feelings on the topic. If you want a professional job, choose a professional! I would say that though..... :wink: :D Darrell. It comes down to cost at the end of the day Darrell. I suspect (or hope!) the painters in Sri Lanka also see themselves as professional...

Re: Sri Lanka Painters

Hi Gunter, nice to hear from you again,.
These are my concerns as well so I suppose the only thing to do is give one of them a try with a small order, certainly the photo's on their websites are impressive.
Take care

Sri Lanka Painters

There are a few websites advertising figure painting at very reasonable prices from Companies in Sri Lanka. I wondered if anyone had tried any of these and if there are any pitfalls, such as hidden costs with customs etc; The pictures on their galleries look good, so hopefully the quality of work sh...

Scottish uniforms

I have a unit of Scottish infantry ready to paint from the Front Rank range for 1685-1700 in bonnets and plaid. The question is, did any infantry units wear this dress for the Williamite wars in Ireland or Scotland? I cannot find any reference so far and may have to use a bit of imagination (I can g...
