Another busy day in the studio with the Frenchies. Here's what's been done:
Paint the brass areas(including the guns of the artillery) with a coat of Brassy Brass(VGC)
Airbrush the whole mini with a 1:1 mix of Gloss Varnish(V):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Wash the mini (including the train/cannon) with two coats of 1:1 mix of Hard Body Black(MM):Airbrush Thinner(V)
Highlight the artillery/train with a slightly thinned coat of Heavy Grey(VGC)
Re-highlight the artillery/train with a slightly thinned coat of Camouflage Green(VGC)
Paint the flesh areas(inc. the horse’s muzzles) with a coat of Heavy Skintone(VGC)
Paint the hair & sheepskin with a coat of Heavy Brown(VGC)
Paint the breeches, gloves & highlight the ropes with a slightly thinned coat of Steel Legion Drab(C)
Wash the hair, sheepskin, flesh, breeches, gloves & leather in-between the ropes & bay horses with a coat of Agrax Earthshade(C)
Highlight the breeches, gloves with a slightly thinned coat of Zandri Dust(C)
Highlight the hair, sheepskin, ropes & re-highlight the breeches, gloves with a slightly thinned coat of Rakarth Flesh(C)
Highlight the tunic’s facings/turnbacks with a coat of Intense Blue(VMC)
Paint all the white cloth, webbing & reigns with a coat of Heavy Bluegrey(VGC) I only did this on the horses and riders as it dawned on me that painting the white after the blue whould be better in the long run.
