Presenting the First 16 Luebecker Musketeers!

A simpler paint job than I have been used to doing, but I must say I like the look. . .  although the black-lining is a killer!  Certainly not museum quality painting, but it's a trade-off I'm willing to make after those Minden hussars.  And guess what?  I have chosen to ignore minor mistakes, figuring (ha, ha) that if I don't notice it, no one else will either.  Liberating to say the least.  It's amazing how many photos you must take just to get one that is not blurry.

Next in line, a couple of officers on foot, a standard-bearer, and an NCO, who still needs his two-coat white basecoat.  Afterwards, I'll address the mounted colonel by himself before continuing on to the next company of 16 musketeer privates.  Rock and roll!

Splendid work Stokes. The red works extremely well and I love the black-lining.

How are you doing your black-lining? I was always a Koh-I-Noor Rapidiograph man myself, but recently tried and started using a Pigma Micron with a .20mm line width. I got mine at Hobby Lobby, but you can also get them from Dick Blick's, which is where I get my Koh-I-Noor supplies. Also, in a slightly thicker line (.25mm I think), Pigma also has their pens in numerous colors, including a very nice Sepia which works well for facial detail and some colors.

Merry Christmas to you and the Family my Friend!

Stokes - I've tried to ignore tiny painting mistakes in that way but my OCD always sends me back to correct them eventually so good luck with that! They do look faultless to me though.
