I finally managed to paint the first extra figure of this set. They were sended to me by Pete from Tabakskollegium-Mekelnborg as a gift. And I would like to thank him again for that. Only thing he asked was that I should paint them and then make a little dio with them, making some pictures and send them to him. So this post is just to show him that I'm making some progress.
Now about the figure. I thought it would be nice to paint him like Lord Cornwallis, so I did. You can read some more about him here (wiki page).
It was hard to remove the mold lines, and I didn't manage to remove them all. When they made this figure the molds didn't fit right in my opinion. I started to paint him with a white undercoat, and then a layer of GW Gryphonne Sepia wash. This I always do when I have to paint some parts white. I do that with a drybrush, so the deeper parts have some shade. You can also do that with a grey wash, like I did on the horse. Further colors I used are red, blue, black antracite, tar black and gold (and some others, I think :-D).
Here are the pictures:
Hope you like him.
I took the following picture as a sample:
