Here are two likely looking lads from Wellington's infamous army. Again the plan is to dip one in strong tone (black) and one in mid tone (brown) from Army Painter. I think with army painter the trick is to put the time in before the model is dipped, therefore I have added a few highlights on the black equipment. Black is really tricky to highlight afterwards and I think it's easier to do before the dipping process. I've also given the faces a quick wash of black to bring out the details and that goes for the sash as well. Hopefully if all goes to plan I won't have to do any highlights after the model is dipped. Well, maybe just a few...I probably won't be able to help myself.
To help speed up the painting production line, I always try to source the right colours straight from the pot, this is easier said than done. For example I found the perfect dark grey from Tamiya. All the other colours are from the Foundry paint system and are the 'B' pot in each colour. Foundry do a fantastic Napoleonic colour range amongst others which does save hours of sourcing and mixing...recommended.
