Mounted 7th Cavalry

Painted up these guys over the last couple of days.



Any suggestions on finishing these guys off will be welcome.

Not sure if you're planning to do it already, but some texturing on the base to hide the integral base of the figure would work well.  There are lots of tutorials on the web if you need some ideas.

I'd also experiment with a flesh wash on the face to darken the recesses and add a little depth.

Photos of my recent efforts are at www.littleleadmen.com

Yes the bases need some work still - I was waiting till I had the foot figures done to do them in a single batch.

I’ll have another look at the faces - I thought I had put a wash on already, but the eyes and other deeper areas aren’t that dark.

More MDF - Blacksmiths Forge

Another Sarissa Kit - all of the yard items are dry fitted, to allow access for basing and detailing

A very nice thread here- you seem to be on a roll with all the painting and modelling! I'm currently painting up my own Shadow Dragons- at a much slower pace, it must be said...  lol

Looking forward to seeing more of your work!
I now have a Blog, like an actual modern-day human!

Thanks, you rules have really hit the spot with us as a group, and we are all busy getting or extending our Wild West collections. Fortunately one of our group already has an extensive range of old west buildings and lots of figures, so we are able to concentrate on adding in extras.

Painting progress has been going well - made good progress on the foot 7th Cav last night.

7th Cavalry Foot



Got the first pass of colours on to these chaps, and a few highlights. Need to work on flesh, hair and highlights on the leather. And probably a brighter highlight on the jackets.

More highlights and details added - realised that I still have hair and beards to do

What with the transition to the new server, and various other things, I've missed a few updates.

The 7th Cavalry are now all finished, and based. Here are a couple of photos of the troopers, again the Mine Tower. They were quick snaps at lunch time, in the surprisingly bright sunshine.





After taking the photos I realised that I'd forgotten to include the werewolves in the group photo.

Thanks - must get some game reports up, as we’ve had several cracking ones!

1. You did a great job on the wolf. The nature pic you showed makes me think it’s too complicated to do light brown to grey to black as you graduate upwards, and all drybrishing... so a great job.

2. I love your sarissa kits. Particularly the half built warehouse.

3. I second mixing up some Devlan mud, badab black and the medium stuff and then doing a highlight over it. You do such a great job on the base colours but more depth would make them even more brilliant.
