7th Cavalry Officer


I painted this chap as part of a paint challenge on the Steve Dean Forum. I’m pretty pleased with how he turned out.

The figure is by Artizan Designs and sculpted by Mike Owen. It is a nice figure and was fairly easy to paint.

The method for theĀ coat and trousers was to paint them in their base colour (Foundry French Blue Base for the coat and GW Electric Blue for the jeans) and drybrush them with the base colour with progressively more white added, up to pure white. I then covered them in a wash of dark blue ink mixed with gloss varnish… it seems to have worked out alright. In particular I am pleased with the face and eyes on this figure!
