"Nothin' but blue skies from now on. . ."

After three separate hour- long (or slightly more) painting sessions, the blue coats are finished on this, the final batch of RSM grenadiers. They’re really starting to look good now, I think. If I’m not too wiped out later this evening, I might start on the next step – THE WHITES! Not my favorite part of figures painting, but necessary. And one can’t argue with appearances after things like shoulder straps, belts, musket straps, etc. are done. Stop by tomorrow to see where we are in Oberfeldwebel Klatchen’s BIG Battalion Painting Process!

Coming along nicely, Very neat work.

My painting method is somewhat 'sploshy', sometimes when all the colours are on the figs a rather a long session follows of touching out all the mistakes I make.

I expect my own painting will end with a long session of touching up mistakes as well. I don't know how you manage to make some of the things you paint so neat, Stokes!

What I'm really dreading is when I finish with the 30mm figures and actually start painting my 1/72 scale plastics again. 30mm is hard enough to paint cleanly, I don't know how I'm going to manage the inch-highs.
