Here's a selection of close ups of the mini's that I've painted thus far (I know, not too many!). You can read about how they were painted as well as seeing many 360 degree pics (or sorts) on my Just Add Water blog here: http://justaddwater-bedford.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/1st-madras-fusiliersneills-b...
