ALY MORRISON'S "BUTTERFLY" ADVENTURES IN THE WORLD OF WARGAMES AND TOY SOLDIERS

The War of Spanish Succession... Dutch Artillery.

Greetings...


I have finished a new light gun and crew...


This one has been painted up as Dutch and with be used as a battalion gun or simply a light gun on its own...








The Coat, Waistcoat and Socks are... Citadel... Kantor Blue.
Which has been given a wash of... Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade.
The Facings are... Citadel... Evil Sunz Scarlet...
The Belts and Straps are... Foundry... Buff Leather 7B.
The Gun is... Citadel... Evil Sunz Scarlet.
Which has been given a coat of... Citadel Contrast... Blood Angel Red.
The metal work is... Citadel... Abaddon Black


Everything was then given a wash of Aly's Brown Liquid and highlighted with the original colours.


A nice workman like uniform I think.


Next on the painting desk... More Artillery.


All the best  Aly

      They did like their guns to stand out in the early 18th century didn’t they.

      Clearly as a wargamer.... there is no such thing as finished...
      Once I have enough toys for a game... I will be taking a pause... there is still plenty of lead under the bed...

      All the best. Aly
