    The number i'll make still in the debate but originally i am thinking 16 including officer and standard bearer.
    I have try the colors of the 1776 regulation on one of the grenadiers and i am not digging it,so i decided to paint the regiment in the 1779 regulation which is a white coat with sky blue facing on the lapels only,the cuffs and pockets are piped in the facing color.
    I had to "shave " the horizontal pockets since the change of 1779 stated that the regiment with "white" metal buttons had vertical and the ones in yellow buttons had horizontal,of course being me i had to be historically accurate and double the work :mad:.
    Hope you guys like it.
    Best regards

    Took a short breather after those last three :sleep: Right now, I'm taking a shot at sculpting from scratch :eek: I'm starting with a non-military subject, if that works... I have a couple of unrealistic ideas brewing in the back of my head :wacky:

    Breeding Daniel, breeding, as in reproducing not bleeding. :eek:
    I've just aquired some nice little flats of Seven Years War French infantry so I'll have to check your mixes for shading white again. ;)
