In an effort to thin the lead pile a little I sent some 6mm figures off to a painting service. I already had some 15mm ACW being painted at Miniature Lanka and had been happy with their service but for the 6mm, I thought I would give DJD Miniatures a try. The price was good so I made an inquiry to Richard there, got a formal quote and sent two 6mm armies off to him.
The figures were Baccus 6mm and were Romans and Numidians (see the last post here). I did not send any painting instructions (too lazy to spend the time researching for this) – just sent the figures. I must admit that I was really looking forward to see how these turned out and how near or far from my own painting style they would be. Near my style and forces would look consistent on the table.
I was quite pleased with the result. The two photos here are taken with a Macro lens and so get you much closer to the figures than your own eyes can.
DJD Minis runs their service out of Phuket, Thailand and I will happily use them again for painting – in fact, I am looking at a pile of unpainted 6mm Napoleonics even as I type
