    DSC03312.JPG DSC03311.JPG DSC03313.JPG DSC03314.JPG French_Naval_Infantry_Cpl_1778_watermarked.jpg Hello planeteers, here's another figure on my workbench.
    I wanted to get away from the whites for a little bit and decided to represent this fusilier of the French Navy.
    This "Marine" uniform was decree in the regs for the 1779 French Army ,which consist of a dark blue coat,scarlet collar,lapels and cuffs ,blue turnbacks with an anchor instead of the usual fleur-De-Lys or grenades.
    The vest and Breeches are dark blue and gaiters are white.
    the hat will have a yellow brim.
    The waist belt was an item from the 1776 regulation but i decided to add it to the uniform.
    I am posting 2 illustrations for reference,one from Don troiani, which portrays a 1776 uniform, the other pic is from Osprey and portray the 1779 regulation.
    Hope you guys like.

    Another hit for sure!
    I know what you mean about changing up the colour palette once in a while... you don't want to get sick of the very thing you like to paint most.
    This should be a strong figure when complete... can't wait!

    Thanks Coling, always appreciate your comments and imput.
    I've been wanted to try some blue and scarlet for a while,since i have like 8 figures already primed and assembled i went for this color combination.
    I am still debating if i should go ahead with the four big bases for yorktown or go with individual small bases for each regiment , any suggestions welcome.
    Best regards
