It took quite a while to paint these miniatures. The sculptor Frank Germershaus created in my opinion gems which are a pleasure to paint. The amount of detail is incredible, correct loading poses, well sized cartridge boxes, correct cut of cloth, like the folds on the coat tails of men and officer alike, tool pouch on the open cartridge box and so on. There I dislike the monstrous GMB sized colours I chose an Adolfo Ramos paper flag which in my view suits much better in size.

Beautiful. That level of detail must have taken forever to paint.

I remember you mentioning at one time that you were painting figures using water colors. Do you still do so and if yes can you provide a basic rundown of how you use water colors?

Thank you.

thanks for all the feed back, as for usuing artist water colours, I pre paint with acrylics, as for example with the cartridge box, a light fleshlike tan, and then I use the water colours as sort of glaze /wash – a bit like Contrast paint over it, in of course darker hue – adding a small amount of flow improver, than take of the water paint with a damp brush where I like to create highlights. It is slower than Contrast paint but the effect is better, I replaced however this technique as much as possible using Contrast paints, there it is just faster, so here on this miniatures, I used Contrast paints, for the shoes, hats, facings, hairs, muskets, the water colour technique for cartridge boxes, musket slings, scabbards.
