Sergeant Futty Nutkins and the stalwart chaps of the Honourable East Valonian Company are almost ready to set forth.
I love these little guys. Once again really great to paint. Some tricky flash to get rid of between the legs, nothing a modelling knife couldn’t get rid of. Still wondering whether to put a coloured band on the hat or whether to leave it black. The Foundry Bay brown triad has eventually been used as a skin tone. Probably had the paints 6+ years. I am rather pleased with the results. I can see I am going to have to get some more of the HEVC because they are awesome. Naming the individuals is going to be the tricky bit.
I finished these this evening, another lovely trio to paint. I am a bit miffed that the back of the kilt is better than the front😱. For some reason I went with a red base coat ( had some spare red from the chaplain’s tunic) it limited the colours to use. In hindsight I should have gone with a green. I might put a light wash over it to tone it down a bit.
Next up is the HEVC halflings, an Ostarian general and some fairies to finish off.
