Hi all, Today I started were I left off yesterday, in front of the spray booth. I completed the basic colours for the cavalry then applied a gloss varnish layer to all the Bavarians.
Then my first dilemma, do I work on all the Bavarians at once or concentrate on the cavalry or infantry first? If their colour schemes were the same or very similar then I would do them together. In the end I decided to work on the cavalry first and get the horses/equipment completed. This way the horse troopers and infantry should paint well together. Then I remembered that the cuirassiers have white tunics!
So, today I have concentrated my efforts on the cavalry. The horse flesh and equipment is completed, as are the blue and wood areas. I also couldn't resit dry brushing the infantry, this simple step really makes them pop.
Here are some pics(now in a new larger format), which due to there early stage are a little dark(except for the infantry, wow):
