Towards the tail end of 2015 I started to do something new, commission painting. I've always thought about doing this but the idea never went beyond that, an idea. Then one day I was looking at some figures, which I do a lot now that I think about it, and meandered over to the Black Tree Design site. I've been eyeballing some orcs and goblins (see previous post) and some Crusaders for a while now and decided to take the plunge and buy a pack or two....just to test the waters :) While on the site I saw that they were looking to update their store to have colored pictures of their figures. Now I don't think I'm a great painter, but I don't think I'm bad either. At least my wife tells me they look great :) So long story short, I threw my name into the bag and they sent me some figures to paint. My first commission.
They sent me some WW2 Russian Sailors and some Naked Viking Beserkers. Which I unfortunately forgot to take pictures of in my rush to sent them back when I was done. The next batch I was sent were some WW2 British Commandos with Bren guns and a Fantasy mounted Shadow Elf. I have to admit it is a nice change of pace to paint something completely random. I did remember to take pictures this time.... I'll let you figure out which is which :)
Any C and C is welcome.
