New post:
Transylvanian Ally Finished
Here they are at last! Thirteen elements to make up a small allied contingent for my latest 15 mm Thirty Years War (TYW) army. The original plan back in August 2016 was to morph my Danish TYW army into a Early TYW German Protestant army with the option of a Transylvanian ally. Amazingly that's what has happened:

Nice figures. Would the Transylvanians have a bat on their flag? ;)

I keep thinking about doing the TYW as an adjunct to my ECW figures but so farchave got no further than a bit of reading. One day...

Very nice paintwork! The flag looks good too. I'm sure they will look great on the table.

Nice, crisp painting.

I found a blog- in Spanish- which had some posts about Bethlan Gabor's boys. He had some flag illustrations too. I can't speak for their accuracy, but they look cool. 8-)

BTW I was fascinated by the bit in your article about adding talc to the paints. I may experiment...

Thanks for the link. Shame there's no reference to a source but they look plausible. The one you posted does contain many elements of the coat of arms:

Arms of Gabriel Bethlen, Prince of Transylvania, 1613-1629, King of Hungary, 1620-1621 (1580-1629)
See http://bit.ly/2skVL9d for details.

Been doing this for quiet a while now. Really helps when it comes to varnishing. Let me know how you get on.

That's one complicated flag to do in small scales, yikes!

New post:

These are early Thirty Years War (TYW) Protestant infantry. My plan is to morph my TYW Danes by painting fresh command stands with different flags. Until recently I was hand painting the flags but these are the first to use some of the recently updated Electoral Saxon Infantry flags I released through vexillia.com.

I really like your painting style. Nice, well-saturated colours and crisp execution.
