Well, having decided to try a black undercoat on the Highlanders I quickly realised that it was going to be a struggle to get that red coverage, the reason I changed to white in the first place. I just could not get the Foundry red to cover well and found it frustrating. So what to do? I walked away from for a couple of days before deciding to drybrush the black u/coat with white to highlight them, leaving some black shadow in shadow areas. I don't know how this is going to turn out but I reckon it will be Ok and certainly the red has covered well in one go. If this does work out I'll use it on the rest of the highlanders. Just wanted to post this picture here for comparison when finished. You never know, it might turn out to be a useful method :-)
Back in a few days with the finished figures hopefully.
