Painting Tutorial - 10mm Napoleonic Russia Jager

Following on from my previous post, 'Russian Line Infantry' I present their light infantry support - the Jagers.
Again these are 10mm scale, manufactured by the 'Magnificent Little Soldier Co.'
Step One - Undercoat
A decent coat of regular 'Black' is applied to the miniatures.

Step Two - Uniform and Blankets

Pick out the main areas first - the arms, the legs. Try to keep the areas solid and let the black contrast with the main colour. This adds a level of depth to the model that is far easier to achieve when working with this scale than to attempt any shade/highlighting with the uniform green.

Step 3 - Skin and Rifles

Here we use a mix of 'blob' for the face and hands, and 'contrast' for the rifle. Leave a little black between the actual hands and the rifle.

Step Four - Silver and Red

The rifle barrels and bayonets are painted with a metallic silver. The trousers receive the 'red stripe' down the side of each leg. When painting lines at this scale it is easier to dip your brush in the paint then wipe a little off the brush. If you try and paint straight from dipping you often make the mistake of getting a 'blob' rather than a line where the brush connects with the model.

Any questions, comments, suggestions gratefully received!
