Well if you are going to slap colour into a vignette as I have been doing you also need a balancing factor to give it so cohesiveness. This means that part of the base has to be subtle, but still detailed enough to give you a focal point and set the scene.
Fortunately this set contains some figures and a table that will do just that job rather well, for a start adjutants wore a regulation uniform and despite looking for variations they pretty much stuck to then rigidly. I think that may be as well, or who knows what other colours would get added to this scene.
So today I present the Adjutants and the order writing table.
The chap on the left is a two part piece hence the separate coat.
These should calm things down a little and really set the backbone of the vignette nicely.
Even the table is full of nice details, an order in process, two ink pots, a book, blotter and some writing paper. one Adutants bicorn even appears resting against a table leg.
The set is coming along nicely now and there are just two more ADC's left to paint before I can work on the base.
