Redstar Vietminh

here's a pic of my first Redstar Vietminh  figure; I really struggled to get the green right on this figure and think I'll paint a more olive tone for the rest of them as well as darkening the flesh a bit. cheers Pete

Great Northern War

Painting Danish flags for the Scanian War has rekindled my interest in the Great Northern War so here's a couple of pictures of my command group for the Preoprasjenski guard that I painted over 7 years ago and have been in a box wrapped in tissue since then. The flag is hand painted on linen and was taken from the book by Hoglund, Sallinas and Bespalow and published by Acedia Press in 2006. I'll probably put these up on ebay over the weekend  as I'll be painting a new command for this unit  soon . cheers Pete

Here's a couple of pics of the regimental colour , i'll probably do a  bit more work on this before being happy with it, cheers Pete
