Bob from Nottingham commissioned me to paint some Essex figures for his FoG Turkish army and his early imperial Romans.
I found the Essex figures a little tougher to paint than Old Glory ancients. The OG figures are sculpted with deep relief, which really helps my painting style. The Essex figures were much flatter, and I had to work harder to make the shading and highlighting pop.
After painting 64 infantry and 24 cavalry for this commission, I feel like I have a good idea of the quality of their range. The figures are nice, but the detail is a little too fine for my taste. Painting them is hard work, but they do look nice when they're done.
