The finishing touch

Next step was the join the teeth with a thin line giving the appearance of lacing. Finishing off with the pompom and bobs, retouching with dark grey the 48 hats took about a morning to complete. The end effect can be seen in the last photo.

Next stop, varnishing, basing and on to the cuirassiers.

Wonderful job, particularly in 15mm. I would have avoided the hassle even with my own 30mm figures, but the effort was worth it. Very effective.

Best wishes, Keith Flint

Good job, I second Mr. Flint's statement.

Thank you for your comments. The hat confection was done early this morning, but with frequent breaks.

The key is not rush, less you create mistakes. Painting the Prussian Guard seems less intimidating.
