Very nice! Shouldn't you be working? ;-) I should. Simon
very nice cavalry...re above comment I should be too!!
I'm working on two books at the moment at home so my time is quite flexable. It just means I end up still working at ten at night and the weekends. Also the morning light is not to be missed for photo shoots.
I'm going to grab a sneaky half hour's painting at lunchtime...:) Simon
Very nice - I do like the effect you get on the buff coats...
Thanks, I use the Foundry paint system for the colour. Luckily they actually produce a Buff leather three colour paint set. To add a little variety into the unit, I paint some of the coats in the Drab scheme. There are also a few half and half mixes in there as well. I find the Foundry systems really handy and have just bought a few more, they are exspensive but do save a lot of time, which is handy when you have an army to paint. I am really happy with their horse colours (see post) as they take a lot of strain out of painting time. I have just tried the Palomino scheme which worked great...I recommend them.
Second the comments - impressive unit and a good choice of colours. Reminds me of my finished harquebusiers who are still in need of proper basing...Love to see 17th century stuff, always good to get some inspiration.Cheers
