Not quite an ouch today, more of an "aaarrggghhh!" - my lower back had seized up when I woke today, which caused me to stay in bed until late afternoon when it had eased a bit. So, an unexpected day off work, but not able to make a great deal of use of it. I did get some bits done though.
30YW Foot, the Red-Green Regiment
Oberst Niklaus Wenzel, Graf von Nordpol and his "Yuletiders" are now finished - matt spray varnish and flocking all done, so here are some pics for your enjoyment:
The big question is what to do as the next Regiment - the Red-Blues or the Green-Blues? I think I'll let you lot decide for me!
Donnington 30YW Cuirassiers
Armour dry-brushed with Gunmetal Grey 863 then given a thin wash of black ink
Horse base colours* painted
Bays and greys - muzzles, tails, cannons and manes washed with black ink
Blacks - all over wash of black ink
Greys - thin wash of black ink all over
* not-quite-wash-thin coats of:
Bay - Chocolate Brown 872, German Camo Medium Brown 826, Flat Brown 984
Chestnut - Mahogany Brown 846
Black - Dark Grey 994
Grey - Pale Greyblue 907
The bays and chestnuts still need to get their shading washes, which I might do later on along with a Yellow Ochre basecoat on the flags, saddle cloths, plumes and jackets for the Red regiment. Tomorrow I should be able to get a decent amount done - horse markings, horse tack, holsters, pistols, flag-staffs, gloves and boots I reckon. That is if I don't pop along to the club after work (I haven't got a game arranged, but might fancy a curry and natter).
