I may have been a bit ambitious in my suggestion of what I would get done tonight. I did get all the highlighting done, but as I was - somewhat madly for 15mm - doing them using thin layers (two in the main colour, two in a highlight shade) for the uniforms and shabraques it took quite a while for each of the four colours involved to be done.
Here's how they're looking now - the reds, blue and yellow are popping very nicely :)
Tomorrow I'll kick off with all the lacing and cords. Luckily that's just two colours. Then it will be the other details, the metals and touchups. I'm pretty sure I'llbe able to finish them and maybe get them varnished as well.
