TEMPLARS CONVERSIONS (STRELETS)

Recently, I've done some conversions on STRELETS horses (see here: link ) but I wanted to know  exactly how they look painted.
I've chosen  to paint 2 Templars Knights: I'm not very satisfied with the white (humm, that's strange.......) and honestly, I paint more easily black than white..

Récemment, j'ai fait quelques conversions sur des chevaux Strelets (voir ici: lien) mais je voulais savoir exactement ce à quoi elles ressemblent peintes.
J'ai choisi de peindre deux Templiers: Je ne suis pas très satisfait avec le blanc (humm, c'est étrange .......) et honnêtement, je peins plus facilement le noir que le blanc ..

I'll continue my review of the blogs that I follow but another day: my pc is dying  and it take  too many time for doing something good!
You can always have a look at my blog-roll.... thanks!

  1. Looks good your conversions and your painting, and I agree with you, white isn't easy to paint. I can sing a song from that.

    1. thanks Bruno!
      the "big" problem with white (for me!) is the paint itself!
      too diluted, it's catastrophic and not enough it's the same!it's crazy!
      I would like to hear your song!

  2. Maybe the white is too white? Maybe the cloth is new... ;)

    2. I was just wondering... Wasn't that the problem?

      Paint them black, that will work! :D

    3. That's a good question, David! I'm sure that there's a better way for painting white than using ... white!
      I've paint some STRELETS black Hospitalers, and it was better than the Templars in my opinion !

    4. Those are good! I remembered the dio. Don't know if it is from the photos, but looked diferent (errr, yes, better) from these new guys.

      I think yours are good. Maybe what you need is some shadows, as the clothes don't fall straight... That would make some diference!

  3. Le blanc est effectivement toujours très difficile à peindre. Ceci dit, il y a peut-être aussi la gravure, non?
    Bref, l'effet d'ensemble est quand même très sympa!

    1. ... merci Phil !
      je trouverai pour le blanc !quand j'avais fait les Teutoniques d'ITALERI,je m'en étais pas trop mal sorti, donc c'est possible!
      Mais tu as raison, les STRELETS + ma couverture ne donnent pas un très bon résultat avec des couleurs comme le blanc et le noir...

  5. Of all the colors, I have suffered the most with white (well, technically it isn't a color, but still.), especially when painting with oils. Your painting, however, seems great and the red crosses just add more to it.

    1. ...thanks Andrew! I use Acrylic but the paint is never good for the white:
      I tried 3 : CITADEL, REVELL, and another cheap one and it's always the same! Maybe Michele (Michigentile) is right : very light grey could be better (like very dark grey for the black, sometimes with a point of dark blue...)

  6. I like them. The Strelets's lance could be better ...

    1. thanks...I know for the lance, but like it was just a trial, I didn't change it, or if I'll use for another project, I'll add a flag.

    1. The quality of a work is not a problem of scale, you know!
      it's just a question of work with a touch of talent, and a touch of love too !

  8. Bravo Sam, not an expert, maybe you can try to veil the white uniform with a very light gray. But still I am surprised every time your progress.Ciao

    1. Thanks Michele... I don't think that I progress at each figure I paint!
      I try to do something different at each time..
      light grey ? I'll try, but in fact I use it for the shading...
