First Blood - Father Christmas

OK, lets start this blog with my latest project. I bought this mini during the summer at the Eastbourne Redoubt games show. The aim was to paint and photograph the mini for use in a home made Christmas card. I left it a bit late but was able to complete the project just in time for Christmas.

The Mini is a little over 28mm scale so the toys were a challenge to paint. I'm particularly happy with the face and eyes. Maybe not as jovial as St Nick should be but I was still happy non-the-less. This is the first time I can say that I felt using a 'wash' improved the model. This is definitely an area of technique that I need to work on.


  1. Nice stuff mate, as usual.
    One small thing, you've not titled your post.

  2. Still learning mate, still learning. I'll be playing with this over the next week and get things tidy as I learn more. Thanks for checking in!
