Spanish Buildings and British Reinforcements

The Brigade Games Hacienda is painted. It needs a base before attaching the roof for the veranda. The building was primed white and the roofs and floors were primed black. The railings, doors and flooring were painted browns. The roofing was painted a light brownish red - basically a mixture of red, yellow and brown. All the pieces were then given a stain of Minwax Tudor satin. After the stain was dry the parts were sprayed with Testors Dullcote. Finally the stucco areas were give a dry brushing of white. Here is the Hacienda along with another building treated the same way.
Here is the Hacienda prior to being stained with Minwax.
On Monday I finally received the Old Glory British Light Infantry that I bought off of a fellow TMPer. These will be painted as 71st Highland Light Infantry - they'll have that cool diced pattern on their shakos.

And to top it all off, a box of the new Perry British Hussars arrived today. It was pre-ordered from Maelstrom Games in the UK. It took less than a week for it to arrive - free shipping, and they give you money back credit for orders too.  Highly recommended.
The hussars will be painted as either the 15th Hussars or 1st KGL Hussars. They'll be wearing busbies in any case. Oh, the poor French Dragoons will once again be put on the back burner; I need to beef up my British first - especially with their first cavalry unit.

  1. Thanks, Scott. I may add some vegetation to the side of the buildings - I saw it on my buddy's and it looks pretty good. Best, Dean
