Pulled out and started working on a whole bunch of pieces of this collection, figures-wise. Except for the boat crews, every human figure now has its base skin tone. Still need to do a wash to give it a better look. Getting very close to being done with two more native warrior units and the native high command. One more warrior unit to do, base skin tone and wash already applied and dried, and then the villagers and a few special groups of figures including the heroic groupings and the natives will be done. One more provincial unit on the work table and eight more ready, prepped and primed, ready to paint and then just need to do the engineer/pioneer units and the rest of the wagons and carts and draft animals - many of which are on the painting bench.
Oh, and since the last post, I've textured all of the bases for all of the completed troops.

Well, not the first photograph here on the blog, but the first topic specific ones. Below are three shots of some units of Indians on some terrain in process and then the final shot shows the terrain complete - but without any figures on it. The terrain is built for my pirate game - check the link under the tab for a whole blog on that topic. That blue is just a plastic tarp and not the sea mat. Again, see pirate blog. Enjoy. When I finish painting this collection I plan to take - and post - a photo of every unit. That will be a LOT of photos. Dull cote, must use some dull cote. And do some rebasing that some won't like but works for me. Those figures are all currently based on 1/2" square steel bases. Eventually they'll all be three to a base. Sacrilege you say for this era? Not when you have more than one thousand figures!
