Real Madrid 2011/12

If you don't know who this team are, how can you call yourself a football fan?

There's not much I want to say about this team, just enjoy the painting :D

LA Galaxy 2011 MLS Cup winners

I appreciate I'm a bit behind the times in painting this up, but better late than never!

I really like this kit; the yellow, white and blue combination works really well. Hopefully the painting has done it justice. Getting the club badge and the stars and stripes patch to resemble the actual badges was quite tricky on such a small scale, not all detail could fit on.  It looks ok though and gives a good enough impression of the team badges.

It's a game of two halves.....or is that quarters?

I know I've been a bit slack recently not updating my blog.  If I'm honest I've not had much time to paint teams over the festive period as I've had far better things to do.........such as eating lots and being merry!

Saying that, I did get one or two opportunities to paint a few teams up.

First up I've repainted an old ref 7 West Ham that had seen better days for my solo league. 

Here's the new home kit for WestBurn Villa

It was my first attempt at painting quarters which are easier to do than what I had initially thought. 

Next up I've been commissioned to paint up a team in the colours of a well known banking firm and a team GB kit.

The well known banking firm's kit is as follows:

For the Team GB kit, I went with the National Anthem tracksuit jacket rather than the football shirt for no other reason than the football shirt looks awful

I've got no idea if the shorts / socks are correct, but it works as is.
