Painting Roundheads

It was now time to start blocking out the Regiments colours. Rather then just covering large areas with paint I tried to leave spaces in the breeches and uniforms that let the black undercoat show through. This will add depth to the figure once it is glazed with the Army Painter stain. I also tried to leave black spaces around places where hands met cuffs, bags, collars etc. This is an old technique and well known, but for me I'm still just getting used to training myself to leave these areas and not cover them.
I used the middle shades from Foundry's paint range to colour the uniforms. This mid range should have the best results once darkened by the Army Painter stain.
