Bavarian 9YW 10s #1 - Day 1

And now for something slightly different! This is a small sample order, which all being well should lead to a larger one. 10mm Pendraken League of Augsburg or 9 Years War minis. two regiments of infantry, one of horse and one of Cuirassiers. First a note on the minis; the infantry and horse are from the new range and look amazing. The level of detail for a 10mm minis is fantastic, you can clearly see an improvement from the older and stumpier Cuirassier minis.

Other than the airbrushing which I completed on all the mini, I've concentrated my efforts on the infantry. I think, if I had the whole day to paint, these would have been completed. They are a joy to paint, quite simple to do, with great results.

Here's what I've done so far:
Cleaned the miniatures and attached them to temporary bases
Superglued the pikes to the minis
Apply an undercoat to the minis with the airbrush using a 1:1 mix of Black Surface Primer(V):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Airbrushed/dusted the minis to create zenith highlights with a 1:1 mix of Cold Grey(VGC):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Airbrushed the Infantry with two coats of a 1:1 mix of Deep Sky Blue(VMC):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Airbrushed the Cuirassiers with two coats of a 1:1 mix of Charred Brown(VGC):Airbrush Thinner(V)

Airbrushed the Horse with two coats of a 1:1 mix of Flat Brown(VMC):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Airbrushed the whole mini with a 1:1 mix of Gloss Varnish(V):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Drybrushed the minis, using a large drybrush with a coat of unthinned Sky Blue(VMC)
Painted the skin with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Skintone(VGC)
Painted the hair, muskets (including stand), flagpoles, pikes, drumsticks  & spears with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Sienna(VGC)
Painted the white areas with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Bluegrey(VGC)
Painted the red areas with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Red(VGC)
Painted the yellow areas with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Goldbrown(VGC)
