I didn't do any painting yesterday (hence the lack of post) and not a lot this evening as I've been feeling pretty lethargic. This evening I got the following done on the two units:
Collars, hat feathers, drum skins and side ropes, officers' trim - Off White
Stocking ribbons, sashes, troopers' cuffs - Vermillion for Green-Red regiment; Dark Blue for Red-Blue regiment
This leaves me with the metalwork details and touch ups to do tomorrow evening before giving them their Klear/ink coat and basing them.
To make up for not posting yesterday, I've included some close-up shots:
I did do a bit of plotting and planning last night - working out what additional figures I need to buy to complete my Medieval Swiss army. I'm going to go for a final army consisting of 48 bases of pikes, 12 bases of halberdiers, 20 bases of crossbowmen, 20 bases of handgunners, 4 bases of mounted crossbowmen, 2 bases of light artillery, 8 bases of "enfants perdu" and 4 foot command bases (plus my Lorraine contingent - 8 bases of knights and a knightly command base).
I'm also a little bit peeved. Last September I went to Colours, which was my first ever wargames show. I was planning to go again this year but spotted the date this afternoon - 8 and 9 September. Drat! I can't go. I'll be down in Brighton as part of my union's delegation at the TUC Congress. Grrrr!
