    Hello Planeteers!;
    Trying to get back on the miniature world after acouple of busy. Months of work and moving to a new home.
    i received a long wanted figure from Latorre last week.
    i decided to convert this figure to resemble an officer of the Royal naval Artillery that besieged the port of Toulon against the the young Republic in 1793.
    i wanted to copy the same uniform of a figure from Beneito tjat i saw years agothe uniform has very interesting colors so that is what i will try to portray here.
    i modified the line infantry coat of 1806 just a little to resemble the ones from the 1790's.
    added a head from miniwelt which i believe works fine anda hat made of my own.
    hope you guys enjoy it

    i also want to wish you a safe and happy Hollydays to all of you.
    regards

    Hello folks,i could not wait longer to lay some base paint on this guy.
    i decided to not complicate myself and use a single color on the coat, dark sea blue from Andrea color.
    As for the vest i added a little of basic blue to the dark sea blue to make it slightly different shade since they arw different garments.
    regards
