More From Siggins








More splendid Connoisseur personalities from the brush of Mike Siggins. Mike uses oils for horses and acrylics (mostly Vallejo) for everything else. Lovely stuff!

Whilst we're on the subject of acrylics there are some very useful painting guides available online that i should have mentioned a long time ago - the Rapid Fire site contains three articles (Painting Plastic Figures I, II and III) that take you through their 'Wash and Line' method that is near as damnit to my own (you may be forgiven for thinking i nicked it from them ...ahem...). Highly recommended, as they say.

Amazing, I love that painting style!

Excellent painting, thanks for the pictures.

Am I right in guessing that, from top to bottom, these are Gneisenau, the Prince of Orange, Bagration and Barclay de Tolly?

Steve, I think so! I stupidly ditched the packaging some years before painting them.

Thanks for the compliments gentlemen.
