Last post of the month, I promise!!

I have speed painted a Napoleonic Spanish Line infantry battalion, and there are many pictures on my blog for those who are interested in that kind of thing.


Feedback, comments and criticisms welcome as always

Very nice. Did you thin the GW Nuln Oil, or straight? Also, for the white uniform areas, was it the same highlight colour for the straps as for the trousers etc.?

Thanks for sharing this.

Evening Fred

I used the nuln oil straight from the pot. I didn't highlight the jackets or trousers at all. I used Foundry Austrian White light shade for the straps

Many thanks. The black lining effect on the white seems superb. My few tries seem to leave the large white areas quite blotchy on some figures.

How long did it take to paint the figures?

About 8 hrs painting time, but due to family commitments I had to spread over 2 days at 4 hrs each

That didn't include the spraying and drying time obviously, I did that the night before
