French Napoleonic 18s #2 - Day 6

The day started with some work on the artillery pieces. The wood areas being re-highlighted with Heavy Grey(VGC), then further highlights of Camouflage Green(VGC).

Then it was back to the troops and their blue highlights, which there is a lot of, especially on the artillerymen. The first highlight was Intense Blue(VMC), further highlights were added with Ultramarine(VMC). These are lighter highlights than I have previously done. As they are in campaign uniforms I wanted the blue to be lighter, more faded looking and I am pleased with the overall look.

With all the major colours painted, it remains for me to highlight all the 'fiddly bits', more of that tomorrow.
