Black and red all over
Posted by Martin on August 18, 2010
I’m making steady progress with the figures for my first Prussian horse artillery base and now I’ve started to work in detail on the fourth of the five figures for it. I have a target completion date in mind and if I can keep up the current rate of progress, I might just achieve it. Apart from the face and hair, everything so far is shades of black, grey and red but that’ll soon change with the grey-blue of the ammunition box plus this chap has a nice leather satchel for me to paint too (though you can’t see it in the picture here because he’s holding round his back with his left hand).
No particular painting notes except that Vallejo Carmine Red is now a permanent fixture in my red palette. It’s a really red red, if you see what I mean and fits nicely as the layer before the more orangey red of Vallejo Scarlet.
