This officer was painted up to look a bit like major Duncan Heyward from Last of the Mohicans, the golden details on the front of the uniform jacket and vest are painted on and not actually sculpted onto the miniature. I added those to make him look the part.
In retrospect I should have fixed his slightly miscast left hand as the fingers don't look quite right.
In any case, this is my first "British" miniature and I have to say that after the matt varnish had dried to a crisp surface I am almost tempted to invest in a couple of Regular redcoats. I'll have to give that a thought. I already have a mostly "generic" collection with a small unit of French regulars, Thomas also bought into the French since we agree they are the "coolest". Fredrik is building a small British force with scots and Viktor is going for Indians so whatever happens we have most things covered and will probably always pool resources when we play. This makes having one additional stray unit or character a bit more justified.
The red on this miniature was painted using the paints and steps below:
Basecoat with Vallejo Scorched Earth
1st layer: Scorched Earth + Vallejo Scarlet Red 75-25
2nd layer:Scorched Earth + Scarlet Red 50-50
3rd layer:Scorched Earth + Scarlet Red 25-75
4th layer: Citadel Mephiston Red + Scorched Earth 80-20
5th layer: Mephiston Red
6th layer: Mephiston Red + Blood Red 70-30
Army Painter Warpaints "Anti Shine", one coat. (The varnish did not become dead flat on the red and black areas until it had dried over the night).
