I cracked on with these tonight…
The peach collars and cuffs was originally meant to be a base coat for a bright orange, which when mixed with white came out this colour. The thing is, it has grown on me, so much so I painted the lolling tongues a darker colour to distinguish them from the peach.
Really just the weapons and some highlights and they will be done, well apart from the bases and the varnishing.
I might splash out and get these chaps a standard bearer. But then again the mountain of lead I have to paint may mean it takes a while.
I have decided that I am going to try, really try to avoid anything else that requires painting. This is for a couple of reasons… first being cost. I am wanting to buy some new re-enactment kit, every penny counts when kit is involved.
Second is a more pragmatic reason. I have so much unpainted stuff sitting around, that I actually don’t have the time to paint it all. Everything from 10mm up to the 28’s. Not to mention from ancient through to sci fi.
I reckon I could paint a 28mm figure a day and I wouldn’t be finished by Christmas.
