Company C of Stollen's Leib Grenadiers Underway
Well, for the last two evenings, I've been hard at work on the thrid batch of RSM grenadiers. So far, I've managed to complete Step #1 of my "BIG Batallion Painting Method" -- I ought to bottle this and sell it ;-). Nothing exciting yet, just green bases, faces, hands, mustaches, wigs, and the pompoms on the final 19 figures. These early parts of the painting are always kinda slow and, to be perfectly frank, rather dull. Or maybe, I'm just fighting the tedium demon? Sigh. Anyway, tomorrow evening will see us working on the bottom halves of these fellows because I've decided that it's best to work from the bottom up. Until then. . . Keep those brushes clean, men!
