From JuanM - Low Velocity Painting (15 Points)

Hello!
Here are three new figures I have been able to paint, with a more common speed, now that my Christmas holidays have finished. 

First one, this is a Roman Auxiliary Centurion from Aventine Miniatures H4H Charity Figures range.



This is a fantastic miniature, really good, and one of the models I am painting as a part of an old, project, II Century Romans of Marcus Aurelius reign.




I would like to use "War & Conquest" from Scarab Miniatures, a rulebook descendant of the, for me, cherished "Warhammer Ancient Battles" ruleset. This Centurion can be the representation of an Strategic Point for the Roman player or as an additional officer for a Legionary unit.



Next one, is a Roman Auxiliary soldier from Aventine Miniatures too with a LBMS shield transfer. He is a test for the first unit of Roman infantry I expect to paint.



I like a lot the helmets of these figures. They add a lot of character to a really limited range of poses. I think I´m going to put the figures in individual bases, the ones the ruleset recommend.





And the last one, another Red Box Games miniature. This time, an Aelfar, Mordred Wyrmsbane.



What can I do about these figures? They are wonderful, a pleasure to paint. This time, I wanted to paint this figure as a sophisticated warrior, a Prince in full armour to mark a difference with the wild Barbarians I have.





And this is all for now. 15 points, I think.
Now, this is time to paint faster; Phil is approaching fast too!


Fantastic work Juan. Your paintwork is so clean and precise, while your colour blending is no slouch as well. I'm particularly impressed with the armour on all these figures, especially the leaf scale on the Elf warrior. This may be low-velocity painting but with 'high impact'. Just beautiful. 

15 very well-earned points.
