Jacobite Painting

Welcome to Jacobite Painting!

I have been involved in wargaming for many years and my face is well-known on the Scottish wargames show circuit…

My own interests range from ancients through to present day conflicts and several ‘what-ifs’ so I have probably already painted figures from your era.

Early Medieval (so-called ‘Dark Ages’!) and Medieval are my favourite periods along with Jacobite risings and post WW2 conflicts.

I offer a table-top wargaming standard – personally I am not comfortable with museum standard, collectors pieces viewed en-masse on the wargames table.

At 28mm (1/56th scale) we are effectively viewing figures at the equivalent of 200 metres so many smaller details (e.g. eyes) are lost at this distance.

Please take a look at the gallery for examples of my painting…
