Quite a while since my last painting update. But I do have a completed project for you.
These are all pics of my Venexias 18mm LOA war miniatures (http://www.venexiaminiatures.com/), I got from Olde Rivertowne Miniatures (http://olderivertowneminis.com/). They are painted as the Monferrato regiment of the Duke of Savoy. The painting is not my top-notch, but I am very satisfied. I used the CD "The Army of the Duchy of Savoy 1688-1713" by GianCarlo Boeri and Robert Vela, from On Military Matters(http://onmilitarymatters.com/pages/) as a reference guide.
Paints used were a mix of Vallejo and GW.They are based on 50x50mm GW squares(my basing for almost everything I have) and will be used for Beneath the Lilly Banners(http://www.leagueofaugsburg.com/shop/products.php?req=view&product_id=18). It took me 10 to 12 hours total over the period of a month, to paint the regiment. But it was worth it. This is why I love miniature painting, you take a greay lump of metal and give it life.
I have pictures with flash and ones without and it and would like input on which you prefer.
Here is how they come
And here are pics of the regiment in battle order
and of specific elements
Fortunetly some green stuff and super glue and TADAAA good as new!
My current ongoing painting is on a second Ottoman Janissary Orta for Winged Fury, and 8 Foundry Musketeers for my TYW project ( I am very near to the completion of my first 1644 Regiment/ 2 Victory without quarter regiments). On the pipe, is a Spanish LOA regiment, Morean SYW regiment, Spiahi Regiment, and Flames of War Soviet heavy mortar element.
I will keep you posted, and please have a great weekend.
