I spent several hours today painting a small unit of Prussian Jägers. This was an experiment in two dimensions. I wanted to see if I could finish a small unit in a day; and I wanted to apply a gloss coat to the unit (I really didn't want to make a mess of my Hussars or Lancers in case I had a mishap). The results are here:
As you can see, they are still on their tongue depressors. I left them on because the gloss takes a while to dry, and I wanted to post their photo today (since it was a one day unit challenge).
Here they are in retreat
Here is a close up of two Jägers from the front.
And in retreat.
Wow does that stuff give off fumes. I have used acrylics so long, that I had forgotten how strong the fumes are from non-water-based paint/varnish. Does anyone know of a water-based varnish? Next time I will go outside to apply the gloss.
I have applied one coat of gloss. Is that sufficient? Your opinion?
