    Hello planeteers,
    i have finished the coat and lapels on these troopers,the "casque" still need some work but almost done.
    Vests and pants done, gaiters and shoes/arms need to be completed.
    I will leave the faces for last.
    for the coat i used an "unusual " mix, not my standard Creamy white but rahter i've used a mix of deck tan and stone grey (vallejo) , i used deck tan on the vest and pants and went a little bit more towards the pure white on the last lights to differenciate the color of the coat form the rest of the garments.
    The gaiters are based with a mix of white and silver grey.
    Once i finish with these two i will start the National guard officer whom will be chatting with the officer of the regiment .
    ihave envision the officer and the national guard officer looking and examining the officer's casque which was issued to most of the regiments in replacement of the tricorne hats.... DSC03740.JPG DSC03741.JPG DSC03742.JPG DSC03743.JPG DSC03732.JPG

    Thanks! ,hopefully i can make it better with the officer's casque.
    I am working on the national guard officer's tricorne/bicorne hat,so i will pause for a bit to concentrate and get the right shape on the hat.
    What about you?, what are you working on now??

    you brave brave man, that looks pretty spot on to me though mate. maybe possibly compress both ends just a tiny bit more.
