These Eureka figures took me the better part of a month to finish, but I lavished some extra attention on them. These are three battalions of German line infantry c. 1798.
The canteens start with Delta's brown iron oxide. The straps are Detla's latte and the main canteen color is Delta's toffee brown.
Musket barrels, banding, bayonets, and locks are all Testors Model Master steel.
Faces and hair are all craft acrylics. For flesh I start with Delta's dark flesh, paint everything but the recesses with medium flesh, then hit the raised areas with fleshtone. I only used five different shades of hair in this batch.
All told, I spent 25 days on these 60 figures. That's a pretty slow pace for me, but I had to allow for a lot of drying time for oils and enamels. The optivisor took some getting used to, and I know it slowed me down as well.
Still, worth it. Totally worth it. These are some of my favorite figures I have ever painted.
