    Dear Planeteers,

    here are some pictures of my current project. When I purchased this bust (Stormtrooper Miniatures), I had no idea of the color of the uniform of this Swiss battalion in French service. I definitely did not expect it to be yellow! Well, he is still missing his knapsack and his musket. I hope to finish the bust by the end of next week.
    Happy painting everyone!

    Nice work on the yellows, not an easy colour to work with. Cap lines look great too.

    Outstanding work, especially the yellow..
    I'm bookmarking this page, I have the Swiss Sapper with Cantiniere from Bonaparte Miniatures, which I'm going to do in the Neufchatel colours. I'll be following this.
