Full Steam Ahead!
Finished the next five musketeers a little while ago before supper, the rearmost rank in the background of the photograph above, bringing the total of fully uniformed and kitted 6th (Luebecker Musketeers) Infantry to 26!
No time to rest on my laurels though! With slightly less than a month to go until the January 16th painting challenge deadline, I've got just over half of this unit to paint. So, I plowed ahead with the next ten figures after supper and K.P. duty, applying the second coat of white acrylic to the basecoat and then a wash of green to the figures' bases. Tomorrow, a glaze of fleshtone and black on the hats, shoes/gaiters, and cartridge pouches.
