My fellow visitors, I'm astonished. I had a look at the statistics of the last two weeks and was really impressed by the fact that I have around 35-40 visitors on this page every day. Wow.
I can only say thank you for liking my little Napoleonic figure world.
Or in other words: I salute you!
I just quickly finished one of my Strelets French staff set generals for this event.
Apart from that, I've finished a little (or big - it just depends) surprise for the Italian visitors which seemingly reach 100 new visitors in the next few days. ;-)
I just experimented a lot with face detail painting in the last days. I hope that you'll like it - please leave me some comments what you think about it. The way I have painted this particular face, is as well quick as it shows a good result. The basic coat is a Rayher flesh acrylic, then the face lines around nose, chin, mouth etc. are shadowed with GW OgrynFlesh washing. Then a small line of GW ElfFlesh on cheeks and chin and finally a highlight with a 1:1 mixture or Rayher white and flesh - done.
So what's next? To be honest: I have no clue. I still have all these Strelets French staff members to do, but after looking into 'Soldiers and uniforms of Napoleonic Wars' (Hourtoulle/Girbal/Courcelle), I decided to paint some examples of the Naples guard grenadiers in early uniforms - especially because the flag group from the Strelets staff set corresponds to that.
At least, I'm still painting and having fun with it - which is the most important thing, isn't it?
