WIP: My First Historical Mini

So this is the result after 1 hour of complete panic during a speed painting challenge that our local painting club held. It was so much fun and hilarity ensued. Suffice to say: retarder and speed paint - not really good friends o_O Anyway as a break after Helion Rain I am going to strip him and have another go, but without the time limits! This will be a shorter post, BTW.


After some simple green...
As you can see the color palette is very simple (read limited) and I'll lay down some NMM since he's so small.

Here he is primed and based and ready to go. My first historical mini :)
This should be a nice little project.

Next post: Colors and cursing!  Thanks for stopping by, have a Merry Christmas and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :)

    1. Perry miniatures I believe, The Zouaves were a class of light infantry regiments of the French Army serving between 1830 and 1962 and linked to French North Africa, as well as some units of other countries modeled upon them. I believe this chap is an american.

    3. Yep 28mm. I swear i am having trouble with 28mm now if it's not GW proportions. I have my glasses on and even my magnifiers out...
