First post, and already I am recycling, I feel a bit like BBC2, but here are some artizan 28mm landsknechts that I painted for the Analogue painting challenge.

They are very nice figures if rather larger than I am used to, I like to base my figures on 45mm x45mm bases and I can get 6 Old Glory Foundry or Perry but I can only fit 4 of these Artizan chaps,there are 20 Artizan and 4  large unknown types obtained from ebay with no history.
Old Glory on the left and Artizan on the right, I was not happy with the basing, I have since come up with a finish that looks somewhat better and I will be applying it to the Old Glory pike (who will then get their own post) and also reto fitting the Artizan unit.
 My main aim with this blog is to document the figures I have and also to use it  as an incentive to finish units and forces. I have already benefited from joining the challenge,not just focusing on painting figures, but basing them. I realised I had not based any figures for over 3 years! I've been  painting figures and wrapping them up and storing them away , it's almost like Christmas as I get to unwrap figures I barely remember painting.
 So there will be figures based and completed and I will stick them on this blog and if nothing else is achieved I'll be happy with that.
All the best Iain
