    Daniel,

    Very,very nice work. What was your purple colors used?
    Did you make the flag that was with the one soldier?

    Keep up the good work.

    Daniel,
    Wonderful work....love the ancien regime period. The whites are very well done. So you are an acrylic (versus oil) guy?

    Sean,i am so sorry,i was so excited to post that i forgot the facing colors.
    On the previous figures i've used:

    Base,Vallejo Royal purple and a dab of black.
    Lights;base plus ivory.
    shadows;base plus black.

    For this grenadier i decided to use the royal purple palette from Foundry,i really like them,it comes in 3 little pots,
    Base (nice and not too dark),light and shadow.
    I still added some more ivory to the final lights thou.
    If you have any other questions i'll be happy to help.
    Best regards

    I painted the flag,yes,but i decided to use a Blue/violet hue rather than violet so i could have some contrst between the flag and facing color on the regiment.

    Dave, i still have 12 more figures to add :p
    I nickname this grenadier "Tom selleck" lol,maybe the pic does not show it very well,but he really resembles the actor.

    Jay,i really like the acrylics and i think i am getting the hand of it,i use oils (testors) for the metal parts which i suck at it,not really good but try to learn every day.
    I love the "Ancien Regime" period,i have tons of books and color plates.
    Thanks for visiting my thread (y)

    Another nice addition to your regiment. The simple colour mixes do a really nice job, particularly the whites and pearl greys.

    Can't wait for the next one

    White is tricky to paint.
    I am still trying to get better at it.
    I can't wait to see any yorktown related figure from you,looking forward to it.
