So with no time to lose on my mammoth task before Badab War I'm going straight back to some models that have been haunting me for the past few months, the Highland Guard!
Now I say haunting because I converted the squad and painted the first before Christmas and undercoated black the rest have remained for some time. Here's the starting point.
These have been like this for a long time. But they aren't like that any more here is the work I've managed tonight!
Photos are pretty poor as I don't have any good light here yet (it makes painting an abolute nightmare!). Still plenty to do but a good start.
The fully painted guardsman was done a while ago and has the Black Watch Tartan. I'm thinking of changing the kilt patern along with a few other bits of the colour scheme, heres a photo of the model and I shall explain what I'm not a fan of.
So firstly I think it has too much going and consequently doesn't fit with the rest of the army. The epaulettes shown here are the wrong colour and have since be repainted to match the rest of the army.
So here is what I I'm considering changing - the tartan
- the band around the helmet
What do you all think? any ideas of regarding what I should change?
Its good to be back painting again.
