Historical Minis Dot Com is my blog where I will post photos about projects or articles that I have written for the new online magazine "Historical Minis Dot Com." The main articles will be posted on the magazine but extra, full sized photos are kept here for reference.
If you have any questions about projects that I have done or about techniques I have used, please do not hesitate to contact me. I love the hobby of wargaming and enjoy trading tricks and tips.

Above: white equipment straps blacklined with a charcoal wash.
Below: white equipment straps blacklined with a dark brown (bittersweet) wash.
COMPARISON: The backpack of the figure above had not been lined. The figure below has had the white leather on the backpack blacklined with a dark brown wash, making the details more striking and realistic.
