    Hello folks,
    New tiny troooers on my bench.
    In this case i am working 2 prussian officers which i am converting to the French uniform, getting rid of the most prussian features of the uniform like the sash on their waist, long lapels, turndown collars and long ponytaill on their wigs.
    The third officer (already in French uniform) will be with the marching column of Gatenois, the other two will be one senior officer of the German Regiment Royal-Deux-ponts, Ludwig Von Closen, the other officer will be from the Irish regiment in french service "walsh"
    They will be placed with the other officers and high command near Rochambeau and Washington.
    Cheers 2c4d063d7be1a2c338b5a0675a8b27bf.jpg 20170123_175822.jpg 20170123_223438.jpg

    Start it to work on the red coat first.
    I've used Andrea dark red as a base color, gave it few washes of GW carrobourg crimson.
    Start it to apply the first lights using a formula p3 Khador red a little diluted to bring the red up .
    Last strokes were the same color straight from the paint jar. 20170124_225826.jpg 20170124_225838.jpg

    The Gatinois officer's coat was basecoated with a mix of number #6 of andrea white paint system(the darkest color) and a mix of vallejo english uniform and german grey.
    Washed with GW agrax earth tone.

    For the Blue, i've use scale 75 dark blue, wash it few time with vallejo blue.

    Lol, yeah, the paint itself it's ok, but their paint jars makes for a good base to attach the figure and prime and paint.
    Best regards
