The devil is in the details!
I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours late Wednesday evening, to begin on all of those little details too numerous to list. So, here are a couple of photos, showing where we are now with the second batch of RSM grenadiers. I’ve included an unfortunately blurred shot to show some of the detail on the rear of two figures, including the white whale bones on the mitre caps and the brass scabbard tips and badge on the cartridge pouch. I’ll try to take a better shot of this tomorrow evening BEFORE I begin painting – It’s now very early Thursday morning here, and I’m bushed. I must say, though, that I'm amazed at how much I've managed to paint in a little over a week with just a few hours most evenings. Ok, off to bed then – Good night!
