At any rate, I spent a few minutes getting the ol’ painting desk straightened up and organized yesterday evening for the coming painting tasks.

At the top, you see the 80 man Zichenau Garde Grenadiere, all lined up and ready to go. I’ll base- and under coat them “en masse” and then follow with painting in roughly 20 figure batches, much like I did with Stollen’s Leib Grenadiere last May.
Finally, here’s a photo of Stollen’s Leib (Grand Duchess Sonja’s Own) Grenadiers, now removed from their temporary painting bases and all lined up waiting for a coat of two of shiny, clear varnish. Still have not done this step because, well, painting on clear varnish is about as exciting as watching paint dry! Joking aside, I’m toying with the idea of trying some kind of urethane spray varnish. Maybe by Krylon? What do you think? Any of you regular Grand Duchy Stollen visitors have any suggestions?
