I removed the previous interim video post, with apologies to Phil who left a comment. Fact is that I was far from happy with the aesthetics, the grid lines are way too heavy and the hills require a lot more work. Overall, that is not what I envisage for my ECW games, I want the terrain to look more natural, don't mind at all something a bit Old School, but if I am to play in a gridded table then the effect must be far more subtle. Plenty for me to think about.
Meantime I'm bashing on with my painting, the 12 Strelets cavalry for John, some ECW clubmen, a couple more field guns and starting a new regiment of foot in off white coats.
The cavalry are not finished yet, more detail work and finishing off the horses, but I like it when I get to this stage of all the main colours in. The flag will be hand painted of course, probably more an impression than a detailed flag but should compliment the regiment OK. There is lots of yellow lace here which gives them a nice lift and I have tried to vary the horse colours while keeping the overall look hopefully in balance.
The new chair was a Fathers Day present from my youngest Daughter and her partner, as chocolates and alcohol are out for me they thought I deserved a comfy painting chair, quite a surprise I must say, unusual but very welcome.
