|Glorious Empires - 54mm|
The TYW musketeer is from Glorious Empires. I liked the look of these and bought of few samples from The Little Tin Soldier. These are 54mm, designs originally 30mm and scaled up. I have no real aspirations of switching to flats in this larger scale but was curious to see if I could pull off a passable paint job, as the shading comes in for closer scrutiny than what you can get away with in 30mm. He came out well enough I think and I somewhat regret choosing the faceless guy here for the test paint as the personality is definitely lacking.
Upcoming posts, I've finished a Peipp 45mm general which has been primer coated and ready to go for many months. Just waiting to apply the varnish. The real exciting thing for me is a set of classic old Heinrichsen Thirty Years War set in 40mm. These designs date to 1883 ! They arrived from Nürnberg a few days ago and I've started painting some. I really look forward to sharing these with you, masterful designs for the most part with a number of mounted generals and leaders of the TYW.
