Welcome to Jacksarge Painting
Beautiful work. Must get me a dispatch rider - my grandfather was a dispatch rider for NZ 2DIV in Italy.
Thanks mate.The AB riders are brilliant, I've still got another one to paint up yet.Not sure if there are any in plastic?
Breathtaking work John!
Steady there Paul, now just sit down and take slow deep breaths...... ;)Cheers mate.
Excellent work! I can never get the faces to look as good as yours.Keep up the good work!FF
Cheers FF. I reckon the faces have alot to do with the quality of the original sculpts myself. My faces are done in four stages i)Deep flesh colour for base coat. ii)Wash with Vallejo flesh wash. iii)Go back over with Mid tone flesh, leaving some darker areas in recesses. iv)Highlight with pale flesh- put a highlight on the nose and top of cheek bones.
Love'em, love'em, love'em!!!What a nice bunch of models John! The truck, the bike, the commando...mate, you made my day! :)
Glad to hear I made your day T.I'm really enjoying following your current projects.
The only dispatch rider I can think of in plastic is the escort rider in the Airfix RAF recovery set. You get two
Now there's a thought, I wonder if Nick knows?
Lovely work. I particularly like your groundwork - beautiful finish on these.
Thanks Curt, glad you like 'em :)
looking good. now send a message for more pies I am hungry over here.
Pies? No, these chaps only take orders for army rations and of course plenty of tea ;)
Stunning work! Really like the basing.
Cheers Rodger for you kind words.
Lovely work on the faces, Sarge.
Thanks FMB- getting the faces right is really important for miniatures I reckon.
