To start the photos, here is a shot of the first 28mm figure I ever painted a few years ago and the one that began the blog. It's the January pirate of the month from the Old Glory Army. My son loves how I did this mini. It was also my first try at eyes, which are a bit off. As I mentioned several posts ago, I would abandon eyes until this year, when I began working on the Black Tree Design Soviets. Hmmm....this week, I noticed that I have several preacher figures: a couple pirates, a couple cowboys, and some Deepest Africa missionaries spring to mind. Got several nuns as well.
