Hi welcome to my Figure painting and basing services blog,,(The Hart of War Painting and Basing services) or the ramblings of a figure painter.
I have been  a professional  figure painter for 9 years now (though I have been interested in Wargaming for much longer now.....Ive been playing with toy soilders since I was a young boy and I am still palying now I am a young(ish) man!
We are a Family business - I work from home, I paint the figures and my Wife does the basing! (though I am sure she would like me to point out that she will never, ever be caught playing Wargames lol).
On this Blog I aim to dispaly my work for anyone interstead to have a look. Its not just for work, I also want to show some of the things I am doing for myself as well.
I Will be adding some pics so you can see the kind of things I do and have painted for other people.
Here are some pictures to start the ball rolling...(or dice maybe?)
