    I’ve been playing again:

    It now takes me less time to do militia than Continentals! I’m sold on this method now, so will do a step by step guide on the next unit to show that painting militia is not that difficult. You just have to… ‘let go’…

    Very nice,  great shades on the hunting shirt.

    Cheers! It’s just Army Painter spray primers with a thin wash of Vallejo Smoke. I used Desert Sand, Skeleton Bone and White. Although I painted over the latter with Vallejo off-white, I’m not sure it really needed it. I need more militia so that will give me the excuse to try more shades!

    Absolutely lovely figures you’ve done!  I always somehow feel guilty over such “cheating”.  I’ve done the same thing for WW1 Russians – coloured khaki primer and wash and pick out the various bits of kit and they’re done and look great.

    Perhaps it’s my innate thriftiness – if I take longer painting castings the “proper” way, then I might buy less figures!

    Which, of course, is completely a false presumption.  My unpainted pile would perhaps be smaller, but I think my credit card would continue to be as abused as ever.

    I like both the end product and the simplicity of the process.
