Revell 2605 French Knight and 2606 English Foot Soldiers

After painting all those Natal figures, I wanted to paint some bigger figures, so my eyes could take a rest. By getting older I can't see that good anymore. I'm getting more and more problems to see the little details like buttons and so on. That's why it is good that I have some of these scale figures. And it is very relaxing to paint these.
Lovely sculpted figures and a joy to paint. The knight is the first one of this set, the others are still in the box, but I hope I can paint them later on. The English Foot Soldiers are the last ones I have. Maybe I find the others back when I have a look at the attick, but at this moment you'll have to do with these.
For the English soldiers I took the same colour scheme as the archer I painted some while ago. If you had missed it you can have a look here: Revell English Archer.
The knight is painted in a colour scheme I liked. Nothing historical, so don't start looking for this heraldy.
Enough blabla, time for the pictures.










I hope you like them!

  7. Very cool Peter! I especially like the shading you managed to get into the joins in the Frenchie's armour. How are you going to use them?

  12. oups... missed this post !!
    When I've read "2605 French Knight and 2606 English Foot Soldiers", I can't believe that you've painted so much figures in a so short time ! Or that it was a joke ..
    It was a joke ... :=)

    Excellent painting work !
    poor frenchie : alone against 3 english men !!
    but he's french .. (1 French Soldier = 3/4 English Soldiers)

    first figures of the year ?

    1. Thanks Pascal! As you maybe know I always put the manufacturer and the number of the set in the post title! Sorry I confused you! But no it was a joke! And 3 French for 1 Flemish! (see year 1302) :-D
      Not the first figures of the year, you missed one post! ;-)

  13. Nice work. The armor is great; I will try the silver with black wash. Two washes?

    1. Thanks Mike! One or two, that depends how you want him to look like. If you find one layer enough you can stop there. Some do a drybrush with silver after adding the wash. It just a matter of taste I think.

  14. Yip! I like E`m Peter. I know just what you mean,by resting your eyes. I likewise paint larger scale figures too,and these figures from the Revell Set you`ve made a good decent job of work on them. I have lots of these in both scales,but none painted as yet. I have been collecting these for years ,but can never find time to paint them.Far to busy elsewhere. A Castle might motivate me. BB

    1. Thanks Paul! It works relaxating for me when I paint such figures. Less problems as with the smaller scales!
