Hello again all, carrying on with my WWI theme today, as I take a look at painting Musketeer Miniatures' WWI Russian Infantry. If you missed the last post, then check it out here: but the main point was that these miniatures are amazing! I really wanted to do something special for them, so I tried a few new techniques - namely more 'manual' highlighting and fewer washes.
Here's another one of my step-by-steps. It's meant for new-ish gamers so sorry if it seems a bit basic to you Longbeards! The inspiration for this technique (and a rough starting point) was Sydney Roundwood's 'in progress' posts for his British Infantry. Sydney really is one of the most talented painters I've seen and I'd highly recommend a look and a flow if for some reason you haven't seen the blog. Now, to painting! Before I started, I superglued the model to a 2p coin, PVA'd some sand on, and undercoated the whole thing white.
