Painting in the summer mainly concentrated on expanding my forces to use with BlackPowder; 28mm American War of Independence and 15mm Sudan. Now I'm back on track with the Imagi Nation of Fromagere. The third infantry regiment almost complete with just a bit of furtling and tidying up required.
I have to admit that I do like the light blue.
I painted the unit as quickly as possible without depth or highlights, just a wash of klear with a drop of dark blue on the coat and brown on the faces.
The klear works quite well on the coats but has smudged on the faces which I may get round to amending. From three feet you don't notice.
However yet another diversion has reared it's ugly head - damn those Perry people.
The first dozen of plastic 28mm ACW almost finished. My poor old eyes struggle to get details on the faces. Hopefully they'll be facing the opposition on the table and not running towards me!
They are very nice figures and being plastic a very reasonable price. I think they were about £13.00 for 36 figures.
