Tim,

Your Mojo would seem to be in full flow with these little guy`s , they look great star. Interesting point about the Cannon paint, even more surprised that there is that sort of info available. Have hunted out the Mithril Hobbits well three of them, bear in mind though they were painted a long while ago and have been bashed about a bit as well. Will send a picture later in the week .

John.

Hi all

Thanks for the support, the comments are much appreciated.

Hi John

The paint mix info would be dictated by order as a standard to be followed, much like uniform regulations, so would be archived in much the same way. I'm not sure when "ready mixed " paint became widespread, but I don't think it was much before the Second World War. Railway colours, such as GWR green, were mixed in much the same way, and those recipes are also easy to find. It's one of the reasons I don't get too hung up on exact colour.....

Cheers

Tim

Hi Jon

Glad you like the handspike.....I thought it was better in iron, but then, how on earth would he lift it

Hi Steve

Glad you like them....here is the reveal.

His nibs, in bling and finery....thought the lace came out well. I used 941 burnt umber with 913 yellow ochre over it, then sparingly highlighted with Darkstar classic gold.

The lads in brass and pewter buttons. All metallic were Darkstar. Basing was home made static grass tufts and crumb foam leaf to give contrasting texture.

_j3a8030.jpg

Lastly the big bang stick. Barrel was again Darkstar metallic, bronze highlighted with brass and then silver/brass mix.

_j3a8033.jpg

A coupl eof shots of them all on the base. Two similar shots with different focus points to get depth of field. I couldn't be bothered to get the tripod out.....and one more to show how the base works in gaming....

_j3a8034.jpg

If poor old spongebob squarehat takes a tumble, you just remove him from the base.....simples.....

I hope this was of interest...if you have any questions please ask away.

French line troops next...

Cheers

Tim
