Now that I've gotten my more serious title of the day out of the way, I can move on to puns and segue back to AWI Redcoats (anyone remember May the Horse be With You by Reliant K?)
To fill a bit of a leadership gap in my AWI British Marine force, I have been working on officer and his equine mount. The figure is Perry, and quite finely detailed, though the horse needed a little extra work to remove the flash. The legs felt a little on the weak side so I left one of the sculpted grass supports for the front feet in place. Unless it is silhouetted, it does not stand out too much.
The officer is painted using a glazing technique of thinned paints building up to the darker colors. I love the smooth finish of the method, though doing it well is labor intensive. I will have to try it on a larger group of figures to really see if it can be done efficiently enough to be adopted as my primary technique or not.
