With Napoleonics I spend most of my time trying to get the edges of colours as neat as possible.Then shade lightly when everything is in place. Over shading can ruin figures of this period in my opinion, so I tend to keep the contrast levels quite low on the fabric areas and make the graduation of tones subtle especially on the faces.
I had forgotten how much time you can spend wondering what colour each part of the uniform is supposed to be with Napoleonics.
The 6 pounder gun was raised by 2mm on the base before dispatch. After looking at these photos I realized the figures bases made them about 2mm taller than they should be compared to the gun, so some 2mm MDF was glued to the base and then the gun was glued back on.
