Third instalment of First World War French

I have posted twice before about the Scarab Miniatures WW1 French that I have been painting, today is another update on my progress. There is still much to do, so expect to see more in the future, including artillery.
I have painted eyes on these most recent efforts as I can now see fine detail a whole lot better using my new headband magnifier. I wear glasses for reading & painting normally, but was finding that for especially detailed sections they were just not enough - and yes I have a well lit painting area too - so I have invested in magnification. I only use the magnifiers when I have to do really fine stuff, my glasses are fine for blocking in & stuff like that.

I hope you enjoy this latest batch of French:

  1. Lovely work as usual. I don't think I could survive without my Optivisor nowadays.

      Yes, I'm very glad I have the extra magnification now when I need it :-)

  2. Yep, have to concur - I am of the age where the Optivisor comes in handy just to read the texts on my phone! ;) (Much to my wife and daughters embarrassment!)

    Absolutely wonderful painting.

      Hehe, yeah I sure need that magnification in my late 40's.

  3. Really effective painting work
    I need to remove my glasses for painting but not need yet a magnifier... being 53 won't too long though

    1. Cheers Anibal :)
      Yes I've had glasses for the close up stuff since I was a teen - having hobbies that involve detail, along with spending a lot of time in front of computers, probably hasn't helped ;-)
