  5. It's not just the skill, it's the patience!

  6. That is some damn fine brushwork.

  7. Morning Willie,
    Its interesting to see how Dave's painting style is evolving. I have had this discussion with him a couple of times. Dave seems to be using the artists techniques which is almost impressionistic at times. God doesnt that sound pretentious. What I was trying to actually say he has done a great paint job on them.Especially the Green shield design. You are a very lucky person.

  8. Magnificent and inspiring! Thaks for sharing! :)

  9. Great troops. The hand painted shields are cool!

  10. Not just the shields but those flags as well look superb.
    You must have one of the best collections in the hobby for this period Willie.

  11. So mystical the composition with the light and the dark, brown tones... fabulous, indeed! You are a master in painting!
