    Hello Folks,
    Trying to complete the last square that will have the Artillery and two regiments marching, Gatenois and Agenais.
    Both regimemts had white coats, one had violet lapels only , the other had violet cuffs only.
    I am using many different purple/violet cors so it will be really hard to comenupnwith the ultimate formula.
    I have scale 75 violet, i have foundry pure palette , i have vallejo purple and violet, and i have GW various purple.and violet.
    So, it will be a mix of different shades of purple .
    Cheers p44f.jpg 20161010_204509.jpg 20161010_213229.jpg

    The white is such an elegant color to paint , once i finish these 3 chaps i am thinking on using a different technique for the next batch of "white coats".

    I've primem these fusiliers with Mr Metal primer.
    I decided to do something different than my regular way of painting white
    I jave used as a base color Andrea white paint system, just the darkest tone plus a dab of vallejo german grey and english uniform. 20161023_204945.jpg 20161023_212747.jpg

    thanks Kev.
    to answer your question, since i was a little boy i was fascinated with the military history and uniforms, especialy the 18th century.
    I used to collect bags and bags of plastic soldiers of every nation.
    So, in painting these miniatures i find that i could enjoy myself painting these historical uniforms and it is my therapy and getaway from everyday work and life.
    I really enjoy this, and the plus is on learning about the uniforms and people who made History what is .
    cheers
