after hitting the books and writing War and Peace several times over I decided to take a short break. I couldn't resist painting up one of the Perry's French hussars - the officer figure of course! I intend to do the command stand in between uni work this month. The officer is about 95% complete, save for basing etc.
The officer's red leather cartridge belt was done with Coat d'Arms 'Brick Red' with a GW 'Crimson Gore' over the top followed by diluted flesh wash.
The photos turned out OK but I had a bugger of a time with very bright sunlight and a fogged lens. Trick is to make the bright light indirect and a dull background, preferably in shade to avoid the auto-focus problems. Remember to click on the images to see the enlargement and please leave a comment if you like (or if you don't like!)
