A couple more DA Explorers

Hi all,

Yep you guessed it - more Darkest Africa. This time a Foundry mini (left) and Copplestone mini (right). Followers of the blog will notice the Foundry mini is the second i have painted and i can say this one is a marked improvement.

Based on coins this time for the purpose of pleasing Doc :)

These will be destined for eBay or private sale, send me a mail if interested.

I also have a mini on eBay at the moment so please take a look:


Having a bit of free time recently has meant my brain is on over drive with wargaming projects that i want to get started. This is dangerous for the wallet... Last night we played some Dystopian Wars at the club and i have renewed interest in painting my fleet. Darkest Africa is at the fore front of my interest but im looking at other colonial periods as well. Boxer Rebellion is interesting to me, lots of bright colours as well as a Napoleonic skirmish game with naval landing parties and native islanders. Its good to froth :)

Back to the brushes

cheers
Rob

Beautiful work, Rob. Any hints on that nice grimy white? And yay for the coin bases. They look much nicer anyway! :)

Thanks Doc, I used P3 for the off white / Khaki:

- Beasthide
- Beasthide + Hammerfall Khaki
- Hammerfall Khaki
- Hammerfall Khaki + White.

Then i just added white to get a finish i liked.

Hope that helps? Hows your varnish issues?

Thanks, rob! I need to get off my behind and buy some of these colours.

As you might have seen on my blog, I've hopefully managed to solve my problems... For now! :)
