Splashed the first few paints on one of the vanguards last night, trying to figure out how to actually paint it. Nothing is nowhere near done, but it gives a general idea of the direction it will take. I'm having a little trouble figuring our where to incorporate the red (greatcoat will be black), initially the plan was one or both shoulderpads - I am however not sure that's quite enough. Instead I have been considering the round part/top of the helmet, which I initially figured would be a steely metal. I kind of like the idea, as I think it will quite interesting and very different from the "standard" two metal setup.
