Not great pictures I know and I apologise ( I am going to work on improving my photography skills, I think I need to light them better) ...... but here are the finished 8 cuirassiers. Again a standard that I am happy with overall, and standing back a little the effect is already reminding me of why I loved Napoleonics so much. I know that they don't have the depth maybe of 'darker' styles over black undercoats but this is a 'retro' project so its a retro style..... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! I am seriously considering a gloss varnish effect, any thoughts on this?
I have run out of figures to paint now until my Perry order arrives. What I do have left are 2 metal British line, a sergeant and a pioneer so I'll use these 2 figures to show how fast this wash method over white undercoat works. Both can form part of my next line battalion when I get the figures. Colour by colour guide coming up, with paint codes etc.
Improved quality pictures next post!
