So far I’m 2 units in to my English Civil War Royalist Army, with The King’s Lifeguard of Foote and Prince Rupert’s Firelocks finished, and so it’s onto the unit I was most looking forward to working on, Prince Rupert’s Blew Regiment (yes…that’s how “blew” is spelled in this case 🙂 ). I was fortunate enough to be able to get ahold of a number of Renegade Miniatures figures. They’re about impossible to find here in the States and quite pricey to ship from England, but I found someone who was closing out their stock some time ago and snagged a bunch up. The Renegade figures are just fantastic, and I’m really enjoying painting them.
In the picture above are all the figures for the regiment. In the right rear are a number primed black waiting to be painted, while in front of them are 3 that are finished. The left half are figures that have been block painted and glazed with Army Painter Strong Tone.
Once these have completely dried (I usually wait at least 2 days), I’ll matte varnish them, and then paint in the highlights.
With any luck, I’ll have the regiment finished and based by the middle of next week.
