In what seems to be becoming something of a litany, wow, have the last couple of weeks been busy. I suspect it's about time I recognize that the new level of activity is less an anomaly, and more status quo, and just roll with it.
That said, I've managed to do a little painting, I've made some progress on both my ork Warboss and a Lord for my Bretonnians, but mainly managed to knock out some test figures for the Acadian project.
These are Blue Moon 18mm American Provincials, done up as Massachusetts provincials. They're in the pre-1750s uniform, with red trousers, which makes them appropriate for Le Loutre's war and the Expulsion. Apparently, once the 7YW got going in earnest, they switched to blue trousers instead. No idea why.
I tried something a little different with these guys, using a wash for shading rather than just working up highlight layers. Not 100% sold on the effect, but one thing I'm going to try and do with this project is experiment a little with techniques.
Next couple of weeks are liable to be equally short on time and progress, but I'll try to get in at least one post over the period, even if it's just a WiP.
