    Hello folks,
    here's a few of the latest figures or better say "multiple " figures i am working on.
    I had 2 of this figures already completed 3 years ago,but decided to go back and modify few itmes on the uniform.
    There are 2 figures wearing the 1776 Facings for the regiment de Saintonge, a grenadier and a fusilier.
    The white coat with "Aurore" lapels , cuffs and sky blue collar .
    The 3 rd figure has the new regulation facings for this regiment (1779 reglement) which is "natural green".
    Since the "Aurore" color is a matter of debate , i searched some pics of what Aurore represents, and i know this cause in spanish means Aurora , so i got some images as a reference.
    I decided to use a simple mix for the base, Vallejo deep yellow and a dab of scarlet.
    This project will take awhile since i am working on another 3 figures that need to be completed.
    Great weekend to all.

    Your aurore is dead on brother... dark yellow with a hint of red. For Napoleonic aurore I use 953 matt yellow + 918 cavalry brown... Comes out basically the same base that you have here.

    As always, off to a great start! Keep giving progress pics

    Thanks Eduardo , still lots of painting ahead but i am really happy with my choice of colors.
    I like the " neatness" of the white coat trimmed in green , but i enjoy painting the whaite coat with Aurore and sky blue, i think it is an interesting combination.
