The big forthcoming event at the moment is the big Cold War Commander game in April so I should be preparing for that. Of course, I'm not. As soon as such a project comes along my brain decides to go of in several other directions...
First up it's 20mm Napoleonics. These guys are a first attempt at doing a dip type of approach. I've added some chocolate brown paint to a jar of Humbrol acrylic matt varnish and applied with a brush over figures that were roughly block painted (OK I couldn't resist a bit of highlighting on the coat sleeves).
I'm not sure about the effect. Do I need to add more brown paint? Will I like the impression more when I have a mass of figures?
And, yes, that's an old Humbrol Authenticard in the background.
Next up are a group of Arab light horse for my 6mm scale Ottoman Turks. Irregular miniatures. They're halfway through having their bases painted.
Finally we have some 6mm scale Cossacks for my Great Northern War collection. These guys are from Baccus 6mm and just need static grass and other vegetation adding to the bases.
