Hessian WIP

As promised, here are some pictures of the Hessians done so far. Above are the officers. The centre figure is from Foundry, a Prussian Freikorps figure sculpted by Mark Copplestone. The rest are all Perry. Below are the drummers and standard bearers and the bottom shot is of some firing musketeers. The latter need their overalls finishing off with some thined paint to smooth out the highlights.
Most of the shading has been achieved with GW washes.

This unit should be finished ina couple of weeks, depending on how things go.

Since first using the GW Washes, they have become a regular and staple part of my painting, the black and sepia are my main two with the Ogre flesh, being the least used pot, even less that the purple one!

I have also watered-down the washes without any problems, and I think they work better on lighter colours rather than darker ones.

I also enjoyed seeing the British command base - they look very good.
