Another member of my Tercio skirmish force

 Hello guys,

It has been a while since last time I updated this blog. In August it was too hot to paint, and also some summer trips abroad prevented me from grabbing my brushes, but here I am again.

These past weeks I am in a World War 2 mood, so I want to re-launch my Bolt Action force for Sicily, Normandy and Far East, but in the meantime, I wanted to finish a miniature from "Tercio Creativo", a sword and buckler man, in heroic 28mm scale, so more 30mm than 28mm... I have a lot of these miniatures and really like its sculpting, but they are little bit too big compared to the rest of my collection, so I use them separately, in skirmish mode.

I painted him using the Foundry Triad system, and then matt varnish with brush... sadly I used a dirty brush (with some plaster from a terrain project) when applied the matt varnish, so there are some traces of plaster in the trousers of the figure :( but anyway, I am happy with the end result.

Now all the miniatures of this range I have already painted, plus Alatriste, from Anno Domini 1666. the difference in size is slightly noticeable.
