4 days off 'real' work and hoping to get a couple of good painting sessions in over Easter weekend. The wife is away so its time to stock up on food and hole up in the loft tomorrow. Here's a shot of recent brush activity, couple of marching Prussian infantry. You're probably thinking the basing lets them down a little. Looks luminous in the photo but its not like that in real life. Its a flocking (flocking not f*cking! )formula i've been using since 1990 (when I started these Franco-Prussian armies) and for consistency i'm sticking with it. I envisage some kind of wargaming with these boys later in life and the bases needed to be sturdily painted so thats why there is no static grass that could get mangled up.
