OG 2nd Ed. 1809 French - WIP
Just a quick WIP update. Using a method picked up from Doug Hamm (Larry Leadhead's alter ego), the buttons and other metallic parts have been painted before the coat itself. Next will be the piping and cuffs, collars and lapels. This is a reverse order of the usual way most people paint - myself included. However, it works well with Napoleonics as it allows for areas of the black undercoat to remain - in effect already having areas blacklined.
