More Anglo Danes/I'm back!
« on: April 24, 2022, 02:17:49 PM »
Some how, somewhere I have managed to find the strength to start getting back into my painting. As I have mentioned before I am battling real demons in terms of mental health and it is no exaggeration that it took a heck of a lot of effort and determination to pick up the brushes again!

This post is both a small celebration and a reminder that it can be done. Are the miniatures painted to the exact same standard as the last unit of Anglo Danes I managed to paint up? Probably not. I am still feeling a little tentative with my brush work to add borders to the tunics and shirts but that will come back with a little time. I have left these unvarnished for now as I'm hoping, as I get back my confidence with the brush I will be able to add patters to the borders with my usual skill.

More pictures from various angles of the mini's can be found on my Just Add Water Blog here:

The next batch of six!

These are fantastic. I am still learning about miniature painting, and these really inspire me to keep at it. Great work and know that you spread light and strength to people all over the world with your post.
