I decided to revisit the Scots Greys. I had a few boxes to work with ( I still have quite a few more} and some I'd painted several years ago that I thought I could improve on.

 

That was lasy month so things have moved on a little.

 

The situation at present is

 

A few horses.

A few troopers

The horses have more detail than shows on the photo. They're a little bleached out on here.

 

The troopers are almost finished so after that it's a lot of varnishing to look forward to. Then the final modifications on the horses and a lot of grass tufts to generate..

For those who're attempting to count, there are two more troopers than horses si I have a little leeway deciding which I use.

 

As I said , there's plenty more still in boxes.

I intended to take the easy route with the buglers and leave them in the same tunic as the troopers but MrsG distracted me and this happened.

Now to do what I meant to and varnish

The troopers are varnished so hopefully no more to do with them.

I've actually managed to get to mounting the greys.

It's a shame that the lighting is hiding the variation in the horses' coats. They're just not that bland looking.

 

Now I have to grow a bit of grass I think 😀

Now to let the manure help the grass grow.

I've flocked the bases and I'm quite happy with finishing at this point.

 

The finished Greys will appear ready for inspection.

 

Now for my Eylau attempt 👌
