    Hello everyone;
    I took some progress pics today.
    Here are the mixes:
    1-Grenadier's fur hat
    Base: burnt umber + german camo black/brown
    Lights added flat yellow
    Shadows added black.
    Few washes with brown glaze.
    2- Hat's brass plate with the royal Cypher
    Testors enamel brass and gold
    few diluted coats of Sepia ink,then re-touch prominent areas in gold.
    I added some images of this regiment so you can have an idea of the Crimson facings.

    Hi Daniel. You´re on the way. The creamish white tone of the uniform is perfect, as well as the red crimson of facings. Good work in the fur cap. This going to be a very nice figure. (y)
