|"Dead -- All eighteen of them!"|
Initially undercoated using some "Vallejo" Dead White, the figure's opera hat, white buttoned-up trenchcoat and white gloves were sporadically shade in Pale Grey, before being dry-brushed in a mixture of "Vallejo" Dead White and White. The mass murderer's semi-automatic machine-gun was painted using a combination of "Citadel" Abaddon Black and Nuln Oil.

The pair of Intellect Devourers then had their 'clawed feet' treated to a mixture of "Vallejo" Iraqi Sand and Strong Tone Quickshade by "The Army Painter". Whilst their pulsing brains were given a couple of layers of "Vallejo" Squid Pink, generously washed with both "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson and Strong Tone Quickshade, and finally dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Squid Pink.
|Crimean War Russian Infantry WIPs - The soldiers have been assembled, based and primed|
I've actually lost count how many times I've previously tried to paint up a Napoleonic Era force in 28mm, and with hindsight now realise that one of the biggest hurdles I faced was basing them in fours rather than as individuals. This invariably meant that I needed to finish an entire quartet of highly-detailed infantrymen before I could see any light at the end of the tunnel. So this time round I'll be working on them as stand-a-lone pieces and plan to form them up on appropriately-sized movement trays should the time ever come when I can play a game using large blocks of soldiers.
