    Well done, Roger! I particularly like the shaded folds at the back of the coat and the well-weathered looking uniform. :)

    All the best,

    Hi Christos. Thank you. I find that the Citadel paints dry to a satin finish so I'm very careful to what items of clothing and equipment I apply them to.
    I find they work well in conjunction with Citadel ink washes on the wooden funiture of firearms, leather euipment and boots, if you want them to look new and polished of course. The metallic paints are very good. "Brazen Brass" was used on this figure for the belt buckle and the other bits and pieces.
    I also mix them with Andrea colours that gets rid of some of the shinyness.

    Roger.

    Wow. You are very quick. And, what is more important, a very good paint-job. I like, same as Dan, the weathered clothes with the dirty look.

    Thanks Ulrich. Not really quick. I spend a lot of hours a day at the table painting, ask Jane:)

    Roger, nice job. I really like the tarred haversack. You got that just right. The pants could have been lighter. They were "sky blue," officially. A good match for that color is Vallejo's Union Blue also Model Master's Navy Blue Gray, Other that taht, you have nice depth to a really dark sahde of bule inthe coat and great detail work on the brass.

    Thanks very much Al. I appreciate your comments. The trousers did actually start as being the "sky blue" you describe, however I've lost that original colour due to the amount of weathering I applied. I will bear this in mind when I paint the Michael Roberts 100mm 6th Wisconsin figure which I've got in the pipeline.
    Thanks again,
    Roger
