And now for some cavalry. This is the first squadron of the regiment Royal Etranger. It was present at Ramillies on the right flank, a little behind the first line in support. It was composed of 3 squadrons and brigaded with the Regiment Toulouse.
I guess I could also call this the premier regiment OCD. To answer my question from the first blog, yes, I will go back and touch up figures after I photograph them and see obvious flaws. I did that with this regiment. This was the first cav regiment I painted. Looking closely at it to touch up some of those flaws, I was experimenting with flesh colors back then so my current flesh pallette doesn’t quite work. I picked up a little around the eyes, but not too much, and only using the deepest shade. And I finished painting the bases. I thought I had painted the edges of all the bases – how I usually do it – but the photo pointed out that wasn’t done. So I cleaned that up too.
Anyway, hope you enjoy. Again figures by Front Rank and flags by GMB Designs.
