Having spent yesterday recovering from Congress, I managed to get a fair bit of painting done today:
Hats (including dry-brush)
Touch up breeches and boots/shoes
Ground colour on bases
Ivory wash on matchcord
Touch up jackets (well, more of a complete repaint of jackets as it happens)
Touch up musket stocks
Collars and other trim
There's now very little to do on the troopers - collars, hat feathers, stocking ribbons, metalwork then the Klear/ink coat and they're ready for basing.
Basing will have to wait until I've finished the officers. I need to do some touch-ups then do the trim and metalwork.
I should be able to get them all finished as far as the Klear/ink coat tomorrow. Once they are done, I'll be making a start on Andy's ECW dragoons as the first part of his painting prize.
Speaking of painting prizes, I now know what I'll be painting for the Dux - a squad of 28mm WWII British Paras. He's ordered them to come direct to me, along with a single mini for me as thanks - apparently when painted up he thinks it will make a good avatar for me. Intriguing, not to mention very generous :-)
Ahhh, I know what you're thinking - "where are the pics? We want pics!"
Well, here you go:
