    Hi guys,

    Just finished this 54mm figure from Andrea miniatures, all by Acrylics. This figure's chain mail is pretty much plat, I spent much more time than usual to deal with it. Hope you like it.

    Cheers

    You have done a great job.Especially considering the piece(part of my GA too).The chainmail on this one is almost non existent.Nevertheless you managed to make it visible.As for the rest of the figure,top class painting.

    Hi Paul, thanks for your comment. Louis XIV figure is in my country house together with most of my grey army, will take the photos this weekend or next.;)

    Hi Oda, thank you for your nice comment. It seems you got the same problem on this figure, this is the first Andrea's 54mm figure I painted, don't know if this is casting issue or the problem of original scuplture.

    Cheers

    At some point Andrea made a turn.It started producing far fewer pieces than it did in the past.The new ones were generally smaller,flatter with much more "subtler" sculpting and rather more expensive than before (to make my point compare Henry the 8th-a masterpiece of sculpting-with the matchlock-ashigaru that came after or the master of St.John).Back in the day,Andrea was a veritable giant not only producing many pieces every month but also producing monumental figures and dioramas(Viking longship,Holy land castle,Trebuchet,U-boat to name a few).Nowdays it's a shadow of it's former self.I don't know if the downgrading of its quality(sculpting) and quantity of output were the causes or the consequences of its "fall" but they are there.I think that the grandmaster is a faulty sculpting to begin with.Nevertheless you can find in Andrea's range some fabulous pieces to paint (for Instance try the Norman with the hawk on his wrist and the hunting crossbow in his other hand, mighty inspiring stuff).

    Hi
    Black is a colour not easy to paint, but you did a great job

    Some fantastic work there. The blacks look great, and I like the subtle weathering on the bottom of the cloak/tabard.

    I like the work on the black cloth. But I don't like his yellow-greenisch hair.
    It gives to much attention, and distracts the eye for the beautifull painting further on the figure.
