Jacobite Highlander Culloden Moor, 1746

This is a medium (scale 1:12) bust from Heroes and Villains Miniatures (ref. [1]) that portraits a Jacobite Highlander (ref. [2]). I am not fey happy with the face, I think I did the same mistake as the previous bust and used too many layers of colour, although they are thin. The real challenge here has been, of course, the tartan and the texture. It's really a nightmare painting so many line and squares and their shadows and lights, but overall I am happy the way it ended up!

English Man-at-Arms, Crecy, 1346

Another small bust (scale 1:12) from FER Miniatures which is very nice and represents a "Man at arms" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-at-arms) during the battle of Crecy in 1346. I wanted to represent a tired soldier after a battle, but I am not completely happy with the outcome about the face, I think I used too many layers of colour so the face ended up being a bit shiny... However, this is also my first attempt at painting a complex heraldry like the one painted over the shield and in this case I am much more happy with the final result!
