As usual, remarkable painting at this scale!
I note the Foot Artillery crew figures appear to have ‘white’ buttons on coat fronts and cuffs, rather than ‘brass’ ones. A case of artistic licence necessary to render sufficient ‘contrast’ at 6mm scale? (I’m curious, as I typically only paint 28mm scale.)

You are correct the horse artillery had green trousers so I used a gold colour for buttons but the foot artillery white trousers distracted the eye to much and the gold buttons looked dirty and wrong! So I used white 6mm is all about contrast or these little extra details are totally worthless , as invisible at distance16/03/2016 at 16:06 #39602GreystreakParticipant
Thank you for the clarity, sir. Working in the 28mm scale, I have to wrestle with other difficult choices to get the ‘effect’ desired, and for my sins they come out looking like so:
