A sneak peek at the painting table...

Hello all,
I have taken a few pictures of the hireling armies I recently acquired and of my own painting efforts for Syldavia itself. All are 15mm Eureka figures, most of mine still need touch ups and are still glued to their painting bases. I just now realizing that I am not so proficient at macro shots with my digital camera, so all of this goes down as practice. I like the Eureka figures, the Austrians seem to me to be better sculpted than the Russians but after a long time waiting for SYW in 15mm to 18mm scale (a dearth oft bemoaned back in the heyday of the Spanner and the Yank website, god rest its sainted soul) I am extremely pleased to have these to work with. The Russian hirelings are painted nicely and I am pleased with them, the Austrians (white blocked over black) are less subtle and my photos weren't flattering, so I left them out.
Enjoy! Jim
