Wow, this is a monumental task. I wouldn't be able to do 160 figures at one time. I'd have to break it up into 4 groups of 40 at least.
Looking good! :)In the same period of time I've primed 5 Prussian Generals and painted the first color on 2 of their horses. Whew! am I tired. LOL
Interesting Scott, you actually do hair before flesh?
I thought that was strange too (i almost always flesh before anything else...but Scott seems to know what he's doing... ;-)
Just finished my first blog update in 5 months (I'm nowhere near as prolific as Scott on that front either)...a replay of the battle of Ligny using my new Prussian army and my C&C Napoleon rules.http://tropical-games.blogspot.com/
I do hair, hats, and socks first because they require drybrushing. I find it much easier to be neat with the flesh than with the hair.
Nice variety on the hats BTW. :)Is the Troinai book useful, or was it unnecessary?
This might seem like a silly question, but I noticed you paint the metal parts on the muskets before the wood, do you usually have to go back and blackline afterwards to touch up? I ask because I've been painting the wood parts first and then the metal but usually have to go back and touchup with some blacklining. Again, a silly question but I'm curious if you've found a better way.
I don't have to retouch the muskets once I'm done, no. I find that doing the silver first lets me leave the blacklining when I paint the wood stocks.
Makes great sense, thanks Scott. Will have to do that with my next vikings right after I do the chain mail. Thanks.
Thanks for the tip, I'll give that a try on my next batch. I'm anxious to see these painted up!
I can't wait to see these when they are done. If I can be so bold please check out my blog, I am just starting it back up after a bit of time off from it...http://miniature-junkie.blogspot.com/Cheers,Eric
