Whilst reorganising my painting table i came across three Blackhoof scout models for the Confederate Army. Now i’d been constantly putting these off as i was convinced they would be a big job and i am trying to avoid getting tied to one project for too long. Also i may still have had a bit of a hangover from painting the giant six wheeled Vaquero buggy so am slighty averse to larger models! Anyway just as i was about to put them away I realised if i put them away now i may not revist them for months so i decided to see if i could get them all done in one Sunday. So here goes, WWX Batch painting!

Here they are in all their Leadbelcher finery!

So far so good, pretty much all the base colours down in a few hours. Had to do a little touch up work as may have been a little impatient at the off.

Up next its the usual Skeleton Bone drybrush followd by a Darktone wash. 50/50 mix with the wash medium to give it a nice smooth finish. CANNOT RECOMMEND WASH MEDIUM ENOUGH! Seriously itll change your life!

7pm, Sunday evening and i manage to escape the family long enough to put down a layer of soft tone dip (brush applied). Thats mission accomplished for the day, ill get it based and mat coated on Monday evening.7pm, Sunday evening and i manage to escape the family long enough to put down a layer of soft tone dip (brush applied).

In between dad duties and grabbing five minutes at a time (much like @warzans infamous hobby bog idea!) i gave the base a soft tone dip and then a brushed on mat coat. Fyi if you are new to mat coating with brush and its goes milky as you apply panic not, its just bubbles and left alone it will settle down as it dries!
