I will be providing these troops for the game coming up labor day weekend and am very excited to get them painted...they should paint up pretty quick.
For the crews, I primed them Ultramarine blue and have washed them in a light black/brown wash to pick out the details against the blue figure. My next task will be to paint flesh on the hands and faces, followed by the red on the cuffs, turn backs, collars and shakos. Once that is done, my work is almost complete! I will then add the white to the belts and straps and finish the model off with black on the boots, cartridge and fuse boxes and finish them off with a final coat of wash. I also will need to paint the details of what each figure is holding, cannon balls, caisson boxes, swabs and buckets and trail spikes.
Hope to have pictures of the crews soon!
