    Hi Guys

    Here is a few images of the Elite Miniatures Bavarian drummer, a lovely kit, with just a few complexities that threw me a little especially that Conflower Blue, it was a bitch to get right, but all in all a great little piece to have in the cabinet, there are a couple of small tidy up areas to be done including blending the figure to the base and the two straps on the drum.

    Let me know what you think.

    Hi, Dave.
    Amazing work as usual.
    Blue of a uniform is very beautiful and wonderful.
    Consideration of small painting is felt.
    I think a wonderful masterpiece.
    I congratulate completion.

    Hi Guys

    thanks very much for the comments, some stuff to do to it still but its getting there

    Jason - the colour mix for the blue was a bitch to get right and took me ages, but eventually I ended up with the acrylic mix below

    Dave

    The Cornflower blue that you were after was mixed as this:

    50% - Andrea Napoleonic Blue
    50% - Andrea Union Blue

    but you can mix them to the colour you consider closest to cornflower

    Basic blue then has the following added

    a small touch of Andrea light flesh No.1
    a small touch of Andrea matt black
    and a small touch of Vallejo Ivory

    for shadows add a touch of Andrea Prussian Blue
    for highlights add a touch of Vallejo Ivory


    The Ivory is a must to use because its not as stark as white and does not encroach on the base colour, but just tints it
