I like how you do all those figures and about all commercial books about book paintings- I am not sure they are any better in final results from what Verlinden publish decades ago ;) so keep on your way

I totally agree with you my friend.
More than that: the universe of figure painters is the more hard you can find (at least here in Belgium): how to apply the light; how to paint some uniform colors (having served in the Belgian army I can affirm that there are not two uniforms that are exactly the same!)... I've chose to paint figures for myself; not to show them in expo or contest (exception: figures painted for RetrokiT, like the tiny Star Wars rebel pilots, that Dominique shows on his stand). As I'm painting figures for myself, I just want to paint them a way that is pleasant for me...
So I have tested acrylics for skin; I prefer oil even if I'm not mastering the technique of oil painting

I've decided to transform the blonde gladiatrix into a red one, because I think I'm mastering red hair now  :))
The 4 figures received a wash on the gray clothes

Finished!!!
To paint the helmets, I've used the AK True Metal paints. Don't like how those paints smell (it's just annoying, not unsupportable), but result is excellent.
