The painting has started


 I started putting the brush to work last night and have decided to do all the figures i have in their base coats and do all there skin that's nearly 300 figures, i have a batch of about 100 that i m working on at work in my lunch times, It's going to take a while but at least i'm underway, i have about 80 ready to base and about 60 still to glue up. they should be ready to undercoat on the weekend so here's a couple of pic's of the progress,  I've done the skin the first of three layers of dark blue and two layers of the lighter blue still haven't decided on the third highlight yet so if you have a suggestion let me know. 
I've added a pic of some Sash and Sabers that i did about a month ago i had quite a few comments on the pants not being light enough

  1. Batches of 100 at a time - that's impressive. What do your work colleagues think?

  11. I am a bit worried that you have a lot of Union troops being shot.

    10 bases at highlighting stage. I should have them highlighted with a coat of varnish tonight.
