I love this unit...when I was younger I spent a lot of time in the regimental museum in Edinburgh Castle.
If you ever get to Edinburgh try and make time to pay the castle a visit...
I was enjoying painting these dismounted troopers so much that I forgot to take any WIP shots... I will make up for this when I paint the mounted troops...
I thought that I would add my short but sweet face painting tutorial to this post...
The paints that I have used are...
Foundry... Flesh 5B
Foundry... Flesh Light 5C
Citadel... Dryad Bark
Citadel... Pink Horror
And Aly's Brown Liquid... https://alystoysoldiers.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/the-war-of-spanish-succession-prussian.html
Everything is first blocked in with flat colours...
Face... Foundry... Flesh 5B
Hair and eyes Citadel... Dryad Bark
Lips... Citadel... Pink Horror
I have only painted the pupils of the eyes...no whites... on most miniatures I don't even bother with this stage , but it seems to suit Front Rank Miniatures.
A wash of Aly's Brown Liquid...
I have shown this because its what I would wash the whole figure with anyway...
Looks a bit rough at the moment but don't worry.
Next up... Reikland Fleshshade...
He has a bit more colour now...
The flesh is now highlighted with Flesh 5B slightly diluted with water or as I prefer Citadel... Lahmian Medium.
I think I use about 70% paint to 30% medium... don't worry if you make it a bit thin as you can just pain two coats.
I highlight the Forehead, Cheek Bones, The bridge of the Nose and if needed the Eye Lids.
I have highlighted the Flesh again with diluted Flesh Light 5C...
I put a spot of colour on the Forehead, Cheek Bones and the bridge of the Nose.
The final stage is a further wash of Alys Brown Liquid to represent 5 o'clock shadow.
As a rule I like to leave the hair a dark colour as it helps frame the face.
Six stages my seem like a lot but if spread out over 18-20 figures you quickly pick up a rhythm.
I hope this has been helpful... as always any questions or comments
All the best Aly
