Some Mar Quar

I finished the squad of Crusader Quar, half of which I posted earlier, and painted all of my Partisans.

First, the Partisans:


I had a blast painting these guys. The poses are good, and each one has its own unique character. After the last few projects I've worked on, it was super fun to take 8 related-but-distinct miniatures, come up with a different colour scheme for each, and take the time on each one to try and do my best work on it.

I had a few snags when working on these guys: the shoulder strap I added to the lantern guy's rifle (which you can't really see here) didn't quite work out as nicely as I would have liked, the guy with the green cloak was painted to look like he's wearing a curtain but the pattern kind of disappeared when I washed it, and the plaid I painted on the molotov thrower's vest worked out better than most I have done, but not as well as I would have liked. That said, I am very happy with them as a group, and I think they are some of my nicest minis.

Next, the Crusaders:

These photos include the five guys I posted earlier, plus the other five from the squad, and their ax-packin' leader. These guys were fun also, though a bit more monotonous to finish up than the Partisans. That's the nature of painting uniforms, I guess. I think these guys worked out really well also, and they look good as a group.

  1. My preferred ones are the Partisans! very good figures and awesome painting work!
    For me, it's impossible to paint many identical figures with the same colours, it's more fun to do different ones!
