I completed the initial airbrushing of the 'lesser' Irish infantry today. This included a black undercoat, basecoat, then highlight colours and finally base painting.
These troop are divided into two main groups - the raw recruits and levy/rabble.
Following my customer's request on colour choices, the raw recruits are to have red or white coats with muted tones for their remaining clothing. The levy/rabble to have various pastel shades for their coats with muted colours for their other clothes.
The results so far from airbrushing the main coat colours (see pics below). From top to bottom blue/grey/off white, light blue, beige, pink/grey, red, mustard and light green.
The final base painting was a customer request, basing over vibrant colours can be problematic, so there now brown. A happy result of airbrushing the bases is that overspray creates a muddy effect on the coats. This can be see in the last (extreme close-up) pic. Maybe not noticeable in the grand scheme of things on the tabletop, but I like it all the same.
