The Lorraine Knights have had their Klear/ink coat and been transferred from painting sticks to their final bases. Looking at them now, I probably could have used my normal black/brown ink mix, but they'll do as they are. I was going to do the basing gunk this evening, but realised it might not have fully dried overnight and I'm going to need them for my FoG match tomorrow evening. I'll do the gunk on Friday instead and hopefully will get the basing finished on Saturday.
Instead I cracked on with the handgunners:
armour and gun barrels dry-brushed with Oily Steel
brigandines painted in various leathery colours
handgun stocks painted in Mahogany Brown
sleeves and leggings painted in cantonal colours (I've done one base for each of the first 8 cantons of the Confederation)
Once I've posted this, I'll do the hands and faces, and the ground colour on the bases then call it a night. On Friday I'll be doing the turbans, hoods, boots and equipment.
I wish Donnington would add a couple more sculpts for these and the crossbowmen to add a little more variety - at the moment there are only two sculpts:
chainmail and sallet, firing
brigandine, hood down, advancing
