    Hello planeteers,
    here's a little conversion i have made from Trident miniatures.
    I've use 2 existing fusiliers, replace their heads by grenadiers in bear fur caps , added fringed epaulettes and mustache on each face.

    I am planning to put these 2 bombardiers guarding the ammunition and other provisions near the french artillery that will be located on the 4th and final square of my Yorktown diorama.
    There were 800 marines with the forces of St Simon brought from the caribbean , many units were line infantry and serve as marines.
    Few of these bombardiers helped to guard positions inland .

    More progress on these chaps...
    I've use scale 75 deep blue for the base color of the coat, i think it works really well.
    As for the red , i've use GW Mephiston red base on the pants and vest, washed with GW carrobourg crimson wash.
    On the cuffs , lapels and collar i've used formula P3 khador red base. 20160608_000023.jpg
