I immediately returned to painting the four 40mm Chasseur figures that had been sitting in drawer for quite some time with just the black undercoat. You see below some progress shots and the finished squadron of eight including an officer and trumpeter in reverse colours. I spent a fair bit of time on the horses. gradually building them up to the highlight and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. With these done I set to bringing the basing of all the British so far to a consistent look with more static grass and a buff dry brush on the stones. Took a few pics of course, the French are next up so that the basing right across the collection is consistent. More will follow.
Who knows whats next! I really fancy painting something different.
Figures by Sash & Saber (USA) available in the UK from Andy at Old Glory.
|Unit at rear awaiting colours, I might try to hand paint them.|
A quick shot to demonstrate the packing method to the BM's new owner on the journey back to the UK. Lots of business card boxes, a perfect tight fit for 6 x 30mm square bases. Strong outer carton.
