Anyway onto the post for today, here is a small unit of 30 years war Swedish Pikemen.
Again I have tried to imitate Greg's style, but am still disappointed a bit with the result. I keep trying to use subtle shade differences, and I know I have to go with harsher differences, it's just against my normal style, so am struggling with it. The figures turned out ok, there is nothing "wrong" with them, they are just no where near what I know is possible, and what Greg gets from his 15mm figs.
Your reservations aside, I think these look terrific Byron. Though I think 15mm figures often lend themselves to a more high-contrast approach, I think your work here is excellent. I especially like your larger basing scheme though I must admit that, personally, I'd cram more figures per base, but that's just me. Question: Are you adding banners to these units later? These lads need some Swedish colours or at least some IKEA cargo totes. :)
