Here they are varnished and based the latest addition to the Prussian order of battle, a six figure squadron of the 6th Naumarkisches Dragoons. The figure used is PN.81 Prussian Dragoon (mounted) charging.
The bases are painted with Humbrol Matt 80 Grass Green. I’ve had a lot of trouble of late with this paint as it was drying streaky with yellow patches so I bought some new pots direct from Humbrol because various bloggers had mentioned that they are now produced in the UK to a new formula. The new paint does dry to a consistent colour which is good but the coverage is poor (requiring 4 coats) and the paint dried to a satin finish not matt! A coat of Testors Dullcote eventually did the trick.
I’ll be leaving the Prussians for a while now to start work on the Black Watch. I’m expecting the Highlanders to be a bit tricky to paint so we’ll have to see just how quickly I can get them done – by the anniversary of Waterloo I hope.
