They were sold with the passing of the owner of Western Miniatures.  I see them EBAY Germany and I am sure someone can name the new owner, i.e. they are available.

Gallery / Capturing of General Horn at Nördlingen 1634
« Last post by Christoph on June 18, 2021, 04:17:19 AM »

here is a brand new set of flats from Thomas Beier. It shows the capturing of an higher officer in the thirty years war. I painted it for the capturing of the swedish general Horn at the end of the battle of Nördlingen in 1634 by croatian horsemen.

Mr. Beier edited some more figures so you can add some horsemen in western european dress insted of the croations to create a different scene. If you are interested in the figures have a look here:

After the gray is painted on, are the colors then glazed over the gray or do painters match a valued color or chroma to the gray then blend the edges of paint?

My Gosh Mark, You've painted a velvet red and blue  I"ve never been able to paint with oil, nor acrylic paint, so rich and magnificient !!
Good recovery also of the boots, although your should not be so shy in using black and dark.

The face = you have the base colours in use, which needs to be improved is the sculpering of the face, and give more details to the eyes, but skin, reddness in lips and face are present.

I must congratulate you for this first flat, undertaken with a lot of tenacity, time, never given up.
Time to stop and keep in your museum anyway, and learn from this one for the next ones.
It is important to set objectives and not willing to reach the prfection on the first time, because you would never finish it and still remain unstatisfied.  I find this first work VERY good and nice and congratulates you !!!

The progression will be motivating, and welcome to the club of the flat painters now, thanks ti this first work!
