    Hello folks,
    I am currently working on this figure, i've got it from a lot of few figures sold some time ago.
    The figure is from Labayen, i mist say i love these figures, i had to fix some areas and edges .
    The original fusil was not available but i've got a good surplus of Charleville Muskets, i am debating if i will make this figure a Standard Bearer or leave it with the fusil.
    I will have to add the buttons on the cuffs and twisted cords in a Herringbone pattern, typical of the Irish Brigades in French service.
    The coat was red, lapels and cuff were yellow , collar was white ( changed to red in 1786) and turnbacks white.
    Cheers

    Note: the illustrationfrom.Don Troiani shows a trooper in the 1776 uniform, note the short tails in yellow and waist belt , which was banned in 1779 Regulation. 895e2167828ce150b57b8cd6dfaef58e.jpg 20171231_004800.jpg

    I have start it to work on the regimental flag.
    I had a white paler with the white cross from an unused figure, so i have painted the red and black squares and red cross in a different red to make it stand out... 20171231_181418.jpg 20171231_181943.jpg

    Excellent build! I like Labayen's kits, too. I think they still hold up well today. Yours is shaping up very nicely.

    Prost!

    Added scale 75 Antares red to the base color for the first lights, for the second lights added a little bit of vallejo Scarlet.
    Then accentuated the dark areas using Army painter Red shade.
    I gave an overall wash of Antares red ( scale 75) and formula P3 Khorne red.
    I will re- touch the highs a tad but it will be tomorrow. 20180102_224839.jpg 20180102_224909.jpg
