    colours On closer inspection the figure does lack shading and highlighting The shako is topped by a red pom pom which is only red to the front the shako plaque is brass and some black lining does give an impression of detail The back of shako is divide into three yellow panels with white lining the base of the shako has a red band with brass buttons The face and hands of this figure are better sculpted than the Napoleonic figure show shading and highlighting a brown moustache all neatly executed The plain blue jacket has red turnbacks and cuffs with brass buttons there is some over paint from the buttons and these are poorly defined and vary in size The buff waistcoat and trousers are block painted with the black undercoat allowed to provide a division between the two garments The plain black gaiters have a row of brass buttons up the outside seam and these are more consistently painted than the jacket buttons 18th century uniforms are quite plain and the painted figure reflects this Assuming our painter is paid at the national minimum wage level 0 85 this figure represents around 10 minutes of our painters time Eight or ten of these figures based in an element on the wargames table will look adequate Subject collectors Standard Figure British Napoleonic infantryman Figure is 15 mm from sole of foot to eye level Current price is 1 75 with no indication of next years price First impression is of a small figure crammed with detail As the two figures are of different subjects and different sculpting styles it is difficult to make a direct comparison we are concerned with the painting service and not the merits of the original castings The shako has a red and white plume

    they become grainy The only thing needed to wash thin and clean this stuff is water Yes the stuff that comes from the tap Now there are some basic colours that you must have and they are white black brown red yellow and blue You will need these to mix colours and these colours mean you can mix just about every colour you will need In addition to these various mettalic s gold silver bronze and steel Now if you want to really save some hassle buy three shades of each colour For example dark green mid green and bright green Deep red red and bright red This will give you a base colour first and second highlight Because mixing the same colour twice can be very awkward What brushes are needed Well you need a size 1 or 2 for priming and large areas 1 brush of every size available from 0 to 20 0 to cover small areas and fine detail work I also have brushes with one and two hairs on for super fine details Now dry brushing is a technique I shall explain later but it destroys brushes so never and I mean never buy expensive brushes to carry out this work it will damage your brushes beyond use and will be very expensive Use cheap camel hair brushes and size 1 or 0 are adequate for this work mainly TIP when dry brushes are worn out they can be trimmed to make very good super fine detail brushes When buying brushes make sure you get brushes with smooth tips that end in a good point and the sizes are right for the miniatures you intend to paint the smaller the scale the finer the brush needed to paint with How do I clean brushes Well this is dependant on the type of paint you are using Generally acrylics that are water based a gentle wash in warm soapy water will suffice remember to re form the tip into a good point though after washing For oil based paints you are better to buy the thinners made by the same manufacturer of the paints you are using When cleaning a brush while painting rotate the brush gently against the side of your water thinner container gently until the brush stops exuding paint A clear thinner water container is best as you can see when the brush is clean and just how dirty the water you are trying to clean up in has become There are 3 things never to do with a brush 1 Never scrub your brushes on a miniature or the blotter 2 Don t let the paint dry on your brush especially when using acrylics This will render your brush useless 3 Never leave your brush sitting in a pot of water thinners resting on its tip you will lose the fine point needed to paint miniatures What other equipment will I need Not much really A palette of some description 2 water

    multi part models there is plenty of spare metal but removing and cleaning up wasn t that much of a chore as the detail on these pieces are excellent Once cleaned up and undercoated what colour to do him This took some time in the end I went for the green body him being a sweaty Ogre an all The painting was fairly painless this model practically painted itself the detail was picked out easily Once painted it was time to put it together This is where super glue doesn t work having run out of drill bits small enough pinning the heavy arms was out of the question It was resin time after sticking it together dropping it on the floor repainting and re sticking and it was then ready to be based Not sure what anyone else thinks but I feel that a leader should have a bigger base so that s what I did got rid of the square base that comes with the model and stuck it on a 2 round base Oh lord praise the Resin again I then based it up giving him a dead Hummi to lord it over The one thing I
