The Painting Process (2)

The batch of figures I'm going to paint undercoated with black spray paint.
Hands , face, hair and musket painted dark brown.
The cuffs ,waistcoat and trousers painted red.
The knapsack and strap painted brown.
The cartouche strap is lined in with white.
The coat , turnbacks and hat lace are painted white leaving a thin line of black to define the straps and turnbacks.
The musket barrel is painted  and the hands and face are painted in leaving a touch of brown to suggest facial features and moustache.
The lace work on the waistcoat and trousers is painted in.
Poly-filla is applied to the base and given time to set .
When dry they are painted a nice bright green .
The new recruits march off ready for varnishing . Only another 24 to do !


  1. Wow, thats a great unit - I am happy to hear that you are also suffering sometimes - as me! Counting the next part of figures to paint...
    I will follow the next 24!
    Best regards
