First, the Partisans:
I had a blast painting these guys. The poses are good, and each one has its own unique character. After the last few projects I've worked on, it was super fun to take 8 related-but-distinct miniatures, come up with a different colour scheme for each, and take the time on each one to try and do my best work on it.
I had a few snags when working on these guys: the shoulder strap I added to the lantern guy's rifle (which you can't really see here) didn't quite work out as nicely as I would have liked, the guy with the green cloak was painted to look like he's wearing a curtain but the pattern kind of disappeared when I washed it, and the plaid I painted on the molotov thrower's vest worked out better than most I have done, but not as well as I would have liked. That said, I am very happy with them as a group, and I think they are some of my nicest minis.
Next, the Crusaders:
These photos include the five guys I posted earlier, plus the other five from the squad, and their ax-packin' leader. These guys were fun also, though a bit more monotonous to finish up than the Partisans. That's the nature of painting uniforms, I guess. I think these guys worked out really well also, and they look good as a group.
