protip: if you're posting pictures here from imgur, instead of posting the link, click on the dropdown in the top right of the image, click on "get share links" and copy and paste the bb code where it says "forums" then the image will embed here and people will see it more easily.

That’s come out quite nicely! What paints are you using?

Thank you!! And I used for Eccleston and Tennant these cheap acrylic paints I think it was £1 for a box of 8 tubes but the paint job came out well in both so I’ll probably keep using them! 😃

You might want to look into citadel paints. Slightly more money, but worth it.

Nice job! For cleaner lines on those shoes I'd recommend picking up a paint pen from somewhere like Hobbycraft. They're only a couple of quid and they allow you to sort those fine details. It helped me to get smooth lines when I painted a waistcoat on my B&M 12 and had to tidy up a little bit
