Whenever I paint a new unit or start a new period that may be a bit daunting, I like to paint a test figure or figures to try out the paint schemes. This time I only had to use one figure! The next unit I'm painting for The Men Who Would be Kings is the 1st Battalion, Gordon Highlanders using the following figure packs from Perry Miniatures: SB 26 Gordon/Cameron Highlander Command and SB 27 Gordon/Cameron Highlanders, standing high port from their metal Sudan Range.
3. Horizontal lines all the way around the kilt. With the Perry figures I thought 3 looked good and I added an extra at the top in the back.
5. Dab a light green "square" where the green intersects. At this scale the square does not have to be perfect. I used (trumpet fanfare) Folk Art Moss Green because that's what I had. Actually, for a lot of small details, I use craft paints as an inexpensive alternative to hobby paints.
Do a little cleanup and use your favorite basing technique and a devil in skirt is ready to take on all comers.
