Here are two more pictures of my first efforts painting historical miniatures many years ago. These figures are from Baccus and they are British Hussars. They were painted with a black undercoat and Vallejo Model color paints. The bright colors make them stand out well on the stand.
As I mentioned before, I am a much better painter now, and I know a lot more about the period. Were I to paint some more, I'd definitely pick out more detail, such as facial hair and pelisse details. I was looking at my Baccus stash in the garage last weekend. Maybe I should paint a few up?
