Hmm lots of food for thought there.
Thanks for all the advice guys. Very much appreciated.
I will buy a few more shades and have a play around.
Ive got some spare Hat limber/caisson horses I can test on plus some of the riders who will become guinea pigs!
I will give them a basic paint job rather than go whole hog of doing all the details. Have a try on that and then if im happy, have a go on a soldier or 2 of ones ive properly done.
With all the mud, smoke and powder burns during Waterloo, im not wanting figures looking too much like they just came out of a parade ground!
Many thanks again guys, stay safe in these troubled times.
