    I was perusing a Blandford book uniforms of 7YW which show the uniform as red with blue facings at the time of Quebec ..apparently this was only for a short time

    Possible different conversion

    The posibilities of conversion on this bust are infinite.
    You can paint from.any white uniform to the datk.sky blue of the German Regiments in French service , or the swiss and irish in red coats.
    All you jave to do is add a second x-belt to the bust , maybe the royal cypher of the French king or leave the grenade, both are accounted to be correct.
    Marvelous bust to paint all of these uniforms. downloadfile-193.jpg 27c3d9ff549a3e7c64b72a66d60cf24a.jpg cfbfde6f0d1cfdee82a7ea26023b60f4.jpg

    Cheers Daniel for posting the art work. you are right you can do quite a lot of different regiments with some conversion work. but it's got very nice colours as it is but it's up to you guys. the bust should be out later this week. we will post on here when he's out will will be taking pre-orders later for those who want to be first. I will post when this can be done on here.

    cheers

    Hi Daniel We thought it had been a period that had been missed as far as the French were concerned. and it was a bust I had in mind for a while. it's just getting that something different that that sparks the interest of people. It is turning into a very nice set of busts I have to say and the ones that are coming up I'm sure will please as much as the one's that are out have.

    I have to say it's down to the skill of Offo that makes them extra special and the art work from Gerard that brings them to life. we just do the casting and picking something we like. I'm sure you will enjoy painting him Daniel. who knows it might just set you on the road to doing more busts.

    Cheers

    Cheers to you , Offo and Gerard for the amazing work to put that together.
