I stopped to paint the chasseur trumpeter but I don’t stopped to paint… I don’t remember if I post this figure before but I hope you like also the unpainted version. The figure represent colonel Saint Raymond in 1806. he was the commander of the 33rd line infantry regiment and he just changed his old blue uniform in the new white and violet laced gold! In 1906 Napoleon decides to make money saving avoiding to buy indigo from the colony… the French army was completely in blue ( colour heritage from the revolution). Some regiment was designed to change immediately clothes and the 33rd were one of them. Saint Raymond was old ( was killed at the end of the year) a solution that I adopted for this figure is to paint the horse in a violet grey… I added some alizarine crimson in the base colour to give to the horse a very close dominant from the violet and white uniform and the grey (highlighted pure white ) horse also for this figure comments are welcome, Ivo Preda Marcelin why don’t you make some historical notes on this uniform and subjects? I think that our privat chat should be interesting also from Planet readers.
