Stollenian Dragoons Muster for Parade

Next, you'll see the entire regiment assemble for a "painting parade" with the first squadron of eight troopers and one officer, together with the regimental staff of three, in the foreground of the photo.

If you look carefully, you can also observe the various steps of my painting process: White Liquitex artists' acrylic gesso at the far right, black Liquitex acrylic undercoat on the second squadron in the middle distance, and of course the first squadron in the foreground, who are being issued their uniforms, mounts, and equipment first.

So far, the acrylic mediums I have used are holding up well with no flaking of paint to speak of -- even when I bend swords and flag poles quite a bit!
