Another of the mounted commanders that I worked on while up late with bronchitis. I do not remember what line he comes from but he was a lot of fun to paint.1
This time I tried to paint the horse as a Grullo, a breed with a smoky grey color, black mane and tail, and black legs. They sometimes have dorsal bliack lines as well but the saddle would have covered it up.
The bush is a lot greener than I had intended as when the hardening glue dried, it did not soak into the bush as well as before (too much water) so I had to drybrush a little more green on it. Of course, the paint was a brighter green.
Since he is a “brigade” commander for Pike and Shotte, I mounted him on a round base.
I used Army Painter Matte Spray and you can see that I have some of the same spotting problems as before. My research has indicated that it comes from holding the can of paint *too* far away from the miniature and so some of the matte drys before it hits the figure and spots the cover. That makes sense so i will try using it one more time.
1 This looks like the Oliver Cromwell figure from the ECW-37 pack by Old Glory Miniatures.
