I managed -- almost -- to finish applying thinned alkyd oil Prussian Blue to these figures last night, but Father Time marched on rather more quickly that I was aware given the fun I had while painting. Just after 11pm, the Grand Duchess informed me that she had chocolate milk prepared and another episode of Inspector Lewis all cued up on Amazon. I know, I know. We live out there on the bloody edge here at Totleigh-in-the-Wold. Avant garde bohemian libertines and all that. So anyway, I had to stop and clean my brush with only three more to go.
This evening then, I'll give the officer, musician, and company NCO their blue coats, apply a dash of thinned black to a few cartridge pouches that I somehow missed the night before last, and then touch up a few turnbacks with white before moving onto applying a thinned coat of yellow to the breeches, waistcoats, cuffs, turnbacks, and shoulder wings of the drummer. Then, it is on to the various details during the next several evenings.
If all goes well, this batch of figures should be done before you know it, and then I can base the entire 80-figure composite regiment. Waiting in the wings, 10 or 12 Minden limbers, about 48 limber horses, and drivers, and I'm eager to get started with those.
