Heavy Dragoons

Posted by FredG on 15 Jan 2018, 21:19

I was waiting for paint and glue to dry so out came the files and I started preparing another Newline set.

These fellows look very dashing but that's a tease as I'm only posting the horses for now. :-D

That shows where they're from anyway ;-)

One set of Heavy Dragoons well and truly impaled.

They show better detail when primed.

Onward with the Heavy Dragoons. I painted them Mocha and then coated with a semi-diluted black ink. I now have a varied set of brown to brown-black horses which is where I was aiming.

The shiny bits are still wet.

More work to the horses. The manes, tails and hooves have been further darkened. Harnesses applied and a sepia wash. I've got the effect I wanted so I'm happy with the bodies. Then just for a bit of fun I saddled them up and added a little more colour to three of them.

The Dragoons were looking very grey so I brightened them up a little.

I also gave the Dragoons a coat of grey on their breeches so they still look exactly as they did yesterday :eh:

I`m sure with good imagination that the trumpet will work to sound recall or indeed the charge. BB
