After the undercoat, the figures have blocks of colour added at random across the two units. Here Brown and Green have been added - usually my stuff is a mix of Coat d'Arms colours and some other bits and pieces such as Vallejo
Piggy guys are almost ready to varnish and tint
And moments later with Army Painter Dark Tone here they are. Normally I'd use the middle Army Painter tone, but I didn't have any to hand, and with the grey tunics on these guys the darker one works quite well
Not bad for wargaming standard
Here they are with some colour on the bases, and a few bits of static grass added
And with varnishing - not as good as Testors Dullcote, but I'd run out. I will have to re-spray them later once I order some more.
Close up on the commanders
Peter Pig's Drums of Scotland!
The pikemen - one has a fairly simple bit of tartan
Musketeers - the shine on the bonnets makes them look like they have some sort of yellow patch on the bonnet, but it's just a trick of the light
I added some swordsmen to make the infantry into Musket/Sword infantry... pretty pleased with them for a rush job.
And here is my step by step "Tartan for tiny soldiers" guide:
Start with a plain blue background
Add a cross-hatching of yellow stripes
Finish with a thinner red line in the middle of the yellow
This is with a green background
And finally red. Simple, but effective on 15mm figures. Nothing too scary ....
