I've cracked on and got the first batch of Prussian Fusiliers painted and varnished . They were relatively easy to paint once I got the first two or three done . I spray them black then paint the figure a darker shade of the required colours - ie a mid grey for the white straps , a buff colour for the yellow etc. . Then I overcoat with the correct shade trying to leave the darker colours for shading , I gave the yellow an extra lighter coat as it's so hard to get yellow right I find .
Prince August have a done a good job with these new wave of figures and they still match the older ranges in style and size . I will have to cast more figures up myself to form the next company so hoping to do that next week.
A close up of one of the Fusiliers , the heads are separate 'plug-in' and you can build Fusiliers , Grenadiers or Tricorned Line Infantry from this basic figure. I enjoy painting 40mm figures , probably because my eyes find it easier to see the details and also they look like 'real' toy soldiers .
