Here is the reulst of some experimentation as described in the previous post. The first picture shows some French cuirassiers with the basic colurs blocked in:Then after 2 coats of a 50/50 mix of matt varnish and GW Devlan Mud wash
Then after highlighting
This has been much quicker than the previous method of blocking in dark shades and then highlighting with lighter colours. I think this is because the amount of highlighting is reduced.
Next up are some hussars. This time round I'll paint the horses brown and shade with neat Devlan mud before blocking in the riders and washing with one coat of the 50/50 mix.
