Two shots of the freshly glossed Sachsen-Coburg contingent. Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but they don't look half bad from about two-three feet away. Just the final 20 to do now, and then the 80-figure regiment is DONE. Whew!
Well, little by little as the great Robert Plant once sang on one of his early 80s solo albums. Here they are with the first coat of acrylic gloss still wet. I'll apply the second, faster coat tomorrow. This evening, I've got a bunch of civilian camp followers to apply a basecoat or two of white acrylic gesso to. Giddy up! Hopefully, more of my Litko bases will arrive this week,
Thank you for the kind words, everyone. The infantry standards come originally from a blog I stumbled onto a few years ago called The Torgau Project (a very interesing 6mm SYW project) where I saved them onto my computer for future use. More recently, the pdf was resized down to 31mm square (roughly the height of my RSM95 and Minden figures) thanks to the graphic designing efforts of a wargaming friend (or, more correctly, his female half) on the other side of the world. I then printed and cut them out and held my breath for the 2.5 days it took me to paint over the computer ink. I've done this before with simpler flag designs, but these are easily the most complicated 'paint by numbers' standards I've ever attempted. Saxon flags are not for the faint of heart let me tell you!
