Greetings! I recently finished up painting my first cavalry figure using the base–dip–highlight method.

I thought the Bicorne figure turned out pretty well and I wanted to share it. There's more on the blog. Thanks!

Looks good. One thing I have found with blackened and russeted armour is to varnish them with a satin finish after the figure's all over matt varnish. Really helps give it a bit of a sheen, like surviving armour has. Might be worth a try on a test figure?

Beautifully done.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I realized that I wrote the incorrect process in my description: it was Base–Wash–Highlight(s). I followed some paint recipes from El Mercenario's book: Painting Wargaming Figures.

That's interesting. I've only applied gloss on figures to try to achieve certain effects… and most of the time I've regretted it. I've never done a satin before. Maybe it would be worth a try. I do like a nice, dead-flat figure, though. Ha ha!
