Round 1 - Saw 5 units getting worked, it took a while for me to match in the colours used by the original painter, It took many hours sifting through various shades and combinations till I had them all sorted to be able to commence work. Too complicate matters further and I had to use techniques that I have not used in a long time to match the painting style of the original figures. Apart from destroying several brushes in the process I managed to replicate the style as close as was possible for me.
Round 2 - This was the turn of the 2 light battalions and the full battalion to be painted. You can see in the background a unit of Bavarian Dragoons that I am currently working, and I also have another one of chevaux leger to order and then paint.
The customer has already based stage 1 and informed me that he can hardly tell the difference between the old and new figures. He visited on Friday to collect the rest of the infantry, so that just leaves the cavalry element and 2 officers to complete on this project.
