Miniature – 75mm scale

French Line Infantry Lieutenant-1870

This is the first painting job of the year. I insisted a lot on painting with the mixed acrylic-oil technique and I am very satisfied with this model, although more practice is needed. This is a 75mm scale model from Fer Miniatures, named "French Line Infantry Lieutenant-1870". The model is beautifully casted and I do love the posture that is very relaxed.

English Grenadier 18th Foot – 1751

Very popular miniature from Romeo Models, the English Grenadier 18th Foot – 1751, 75mm scale. It's indeed a very nice model to paint, since it's a lot of details, like the hat. The painting technique is what is now my standard process, that is the mixed acrylic-oil. Of course, to remove the satin/glossy effect that often oil colors are about, at the end I spray a super matt varnish (by AK) with the airbrush.

Roman Legionary

Another very popular miniature from Pegaso Models: Roman Legionary - 75mm scale. This is also my very first miniature related to the Roman period and of course it's also the first time I painted a "scutum", the famous roman shield. Overall I am rather happy with the outcome. The painting process is mixed acrylic-oil, as usual.

Hostus vs. Ennius – 215bc – 2nd Punic War

This is a 75mm scene built with two miniatures by Romeo Models. The scene is about the fight between Hostus (or Josto) who was Ampsicora's sone (Ampsicora guided the rebellion against Romans in Sardinia in Punic War period), and a Roma (here names Ennius), where the latter killed the former. Technique is always mixed acrylic-oil and I used it for any element of the miniatures. The 'dirt' effects were made with pigments by Andrea Colors (they have a nice color selection)

European Knight IV Century

sdfgds fgasfgad   Another very popular Pegaso Model figurine in 75mm scale. Many painters opted for a red coloured vest, this time I opted for a blue one. I used a mixec acrylic-oil paint, also for the vest. In general oil simplify the painting process of shades and highlights. Yes, eventually they are a bit glossy, but I used the super effective matt varnish by AK using airbrush and this makes everything very matt (including metals...) For the first time I decided to include some water in the scene. It's not easy to work with the resin, in general, but overall I am rather happy of the final outcome.

Hussite Infantryman

This is a nice 75mm figurine from Masterclass. The base is scratch-built, including the bag which I modelled using a standard putty. [ngg src="galleries" ids="7" display="pro_mosaic"]
