Another fairly productive day today. Early this morning I added gunk to the bases of the horse grenadiers and dragoons. It's almost fully cured, but I'll leave them overnight before drybrushing and flocking them.
After doing some chores, this afternoon I cracked on with the "hussar" general and his staff. Lots of fancy detailing, shading washes and highlights later and they were done by 8pm. I had them fully varnished by just after 9pm. It was quite good fun painting up this trio.
I between varnishing steps I decided to stain the wood of the wagons. I still need to do the metal trim and hubs of the wagon wheels - maybe tomorrow morning. So, with the wagons stained and the hussar command group varnished and a couple of hours spare, I decided to paint up the two wagoneers - I've done them in the (ex Observation Corps) fusilier uniforms. Despite it being just two figures, they still took me two hours to complete (including varnishing) as I needed to let various steps dry before doing the next one.
Well, I guess you want pics...
The wagon horses just need the brasses done but I'm still waiting for the bases I've ordered to arrive. I also need to buy some more pumice gel as I'm almost out.
I'm back to work next week, so will only have the evenings for painting. I should manage to get the hussars done by the weekend, ready for basing if all goes well.
