I'm pleased to say the May Painting Challenge is going well and today I put the finishing touches to my AB Prussian HA. If you are interested in the video progress you can find the latest over on YouTube here:
Or if you prefer there are pics below . . .
I'll admit right out that I maybe went a shade light on the uniform but they are 18mm so do need a little help on the table. My final highlight was foundry Prussian blue highlight with a tiny touch of Coat d'Arms horse grey. I really like the colour so went for it. Craig sorry buddy as I know I should be keeping it dark!
It goes without saying that the AB figures are lovely, these are some of the nicest I've painted and are far better detailed than the regular rank and file Prussian infantry that I own. I would guess they were sculpted later?
I added flowers and turfs from MiniNatur and I'm pretty happy with the effect they give the bases if a little artificial they do brighten them up a bit. Maybe they should be crushed into the ground but that's life, artistic licence and all that.
A huge thanks to Darren who I purchased a large amount of my unpainted AB Prussians From a few years ago. Darren kindly sent up a load of AB Prussian guns he found long after our transaction and I'm really grateful for that Darren, definitely saved me a few £'s!
So that's me for the moment, sorry for not getting around everyone's blog I've been busy with the video a day MPC. Hopefully everything will be back to normal 1st June.
Happy wargaming and painting!
