    I have to keep reminding myself what scale you are working on .You make it seem so easy when it is not.Remarkable work as usual.

    I have painted the Bear fur Bags, jist need to add last lights and paint the white tassel.
    Swords and scabbards are done, i generally use Testors enamel Gold for Brass, once dry i give it a wash of Vallejo Sepia and then highlight with the base color some edges.
    For silver swords i use Testors enamel silver and vallejo black wash or Army painter Dark tone wash.
    Scabbards are done as well as bayonet holster.
    I did add a strong dark blue/ black shade and outlined some areas of the uniform, tomorrow i will add the last Blue lights.
    Red turnbacks are almost done, i need to add the lightest red/orange paimt to accentuate the edges of the turnbacks.
    Muskets had a base of Vallejo Iraqui Sand, then a couple of Vallejo Smoke for the wood grain, i normally add a little bit of water and build up the color gradually.

    Hi there, yep it seems better - I think my old bottle with it getting to its last drabs in it and age - over Three years old, was probably the reason it was not working, with my new bottle I put just the one light bruhed coat over my latest figures and it covered and flat quite well - will need a few more light coats though (and adding your advice about adding it to my paint layers in my wet pallet - I will deffo do.
