Perry Mounted British Officer - AWI



This is the figure that accompanied the multi-box deal they had for their plastic British Infantry. I decided to paint him as a General that could slide into any number of roles on the wargaming table. There was an absence of button hole lace and after much trepidation I decided to take the risk and paint some in place. I'm not real happy with the result, but they'll pass on the game table. It had also been a long time since I painted a pure black horse and since I was already going to risk the lace I thought why not risk the black horse. I've got some work to do in the future when it comes to black horses, but this one will likewise pass on the game table.

  1. You've done a great job on the pure black horse imho. Nice work all round on this figure.

    1. Thank you much. I think I wanted more of subtle layering on the horse to show. For all the layers, at least 15, it finished rather blocky. At some point I'll arrive at the decision to either go with simpler techniques and arrive a the same results (only faster) or keep going. More practice and I'll get there.

      P.S. I've been checking in regularly on your painting challenge progress. Nice work and very interesting subjects.
