Capitan painting competition: Milicias Provinciales Ciudad Real
My entry for the Capitan Miniatures painting competition. I went for the classic Spanish 'Milicias Provinciales' in their white with red facings. Given it is a competition entry, I even did the eyes. I've not done eyes for years, these aren't perfect but a passable effort.
The standard is hand-painted and an approximation of the design for the Milicias Ciudad Real. Though Capian offer free downloadable flags on their website (which is good of them), my printer just wouldn't give out a decent colour, so I had to make my own.
I find the Capitan miniatures a bit slight compared to Perry. These were test shots, I've seen a few minor things which I might tidy up before I enter him.
