This submission consists of eight 28mm FIW coureurs de bois from AW Miniatures. These represent my painting contribution for the most excellent Bloggers for Charity project organized by James B and AndrewS.
These were painted over black primer drybrushed with white to provide some pre-highlighting. As the figures were all the same pose, I decided to use a wide range of colours to make every figure different. It also made for some confusion on my part when I went to do the final highlighting. It might have been better if I'd done them before I gave the figures a wash of brown ink - a lesson learned for next time!
I still haven't mastered the art of painting eyes, so I've just done the iris colour and ignored the whites. I have remembered one lesson I learned after painting my Norman Dux a couple of months ago - seal with Klear on its own rather than mixed with ink as the ink mix is very good at hiding all the effort put into the highlighting.
These have been left unbased as Andrew will be doing all the figure basing for the project.
Lovely work Tamsin and all for a good cause. I especially like that you've reflected the bead-work ornamentation that was a common feature of these intrepid fellows' clothes. Well done.
These eight Coureur de Bois will give Tamsin a well-earned 32 points. Nice job!
