I made a simple video on how I paint 10 mils.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajFeVol586k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajFeVol586k</a>

The regiment is 8th New York State Militia “Washington Grays”

I hope you find some of it interesting.

I’m about to embark on the fool’s mission of setting up Battle of the Auroch Hills with 10mm figures as well as building a scale model of the battleground. Maybe next year.

How good was that! Keep that going; it's looking fantastic. As I've said before, if I hadn't got into 15mm ACW about 20 0dd years ago I would certainly be going down the 10mm route.

Thanks for the kind words Smiley


As a sausage-fingered, rheumy-eyed, shaky-handed 50 year old, I had to find out a few techniques, over the past months, that enabled me to end up with  decent results in 10mm.
In sharing them I'm hoping that others might find a new trick or two.

*grins* The white primer and black pre-wash thechnique does demand crisply sculpted figures with good detail to pick out. Look at how well it works with the new "rifle on the right shoulder" figs   Tongue
