    Rafa, After watching your rendition of him, I must have this figure. The fleshtones, and what you've done with the yellows is superb. I'm really enjoying the progress you are making.

    John, thanks a lot for your kind comments. I also think that these colors are less typical that the red or black versions and I prefered to do something different.

    John. really I recommend this figure. For instance I am thinking in painting some figures with different uniform versions because I enjoy to much with this one.
    Thanks,

    Of course Paulo. Here it is:

    coat (yellow): I used "Japan Uniform" + Black + drop of "flat yellow" +drop of "english uniform" as base (all acrylics Vallejo). For the lights I used the base+flat yellow and before the 4th or 5th adding some "ice yellow" and the two last adding white. The shadows were the base+english uniform and a drop of "camouflage black brown" in the last shadow (this is a Vallejo Air Model color).

    trouser (green color): I used "military green" as base color. I used "Olive Green" for the lights (the last lights I add a drop of "golden olive". For shadows I add some "US olive drab" to the base. All Vallejo acrylic colors.

    I hope this helps you,

    Hello Rafa,
    a beautifull painting but in Prussia there was no one husar regiment with such uniform in this time (1763). Have you use the uniform plate from Andrea ? This uniformplate is bulls..... :angry:

    Only the Regiment No. 7 have a yellow "Dolman" see the picture:

    I hope this is a little help for you.

    Too late ..... But I got some info about the 11th regiment. It said:

    "Starting from 1763 existed still the Hussar commands of the prince Heinrich in Magdeburg and Rhine mountain as well as starting from 1792 the Hussar battalion 11 under v. Franckenberg, v., set up in Berlin after assumption of Ansbach Bayreuth, and v. Bila sat. (von Bila Husaren). The Batallion, 5 Squadrons strong, became quite famous (nickname: Canary Birds) for their brave stand at Jena.

    The Andrea husar is dated in 1762 and in 1763 exist the commands of prince Heinrich. Perhaps this plate is based on this commands (I do not know). Anyway, there is not nothing to do now more than finish the hussar as best as I can.

    regards,
    Rafa
