    hello everyone ,
    here's two more grenadiers from the Soissonois Regiment finally completed.
    I spent a great deal of time changing the Crimson and trying different mixes,so it took me a while to complete.
    As for the Gaiters i decided to try the Panzer aces German camo white as a base,and use the vallejo grey and black washes for shadows.
    As for the Crimson,always many interpretations on this color, i've tried some citadel colors on one of the cuffs to try it out.
    Mixes as follow :

    Crimson Facings :
    1- base = Vallejo Game color "Gory red" ,dab of Andrea basic Red and dab of Andrea Crimson.
    Lights = Base + light orange ,final lights added a little bit of white to the mix.
    Shadows= Base + black

    crimson 2
    1- Base = Citadel Mechrite red
    Lights = Base + Vallejo Magenta + orange-red ,last lights added white to the mix.
    Shadows = Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (only) ,i find this to be the greates thing ever for shadowing crimson,already watered down and ready to use stright from the bottle.

    For other parts of the uniform mixes please go to the prior posts .
    Cheers:) DSC03510.JPG DSC03511.JPG DSC03512.JPG DSC03513.JPG DSC03515.JPG DSC03516.JPG DSC03517.JPG

    I was wondering when the next group from you was going to show up... I was getting worried:nailbiting:
    The crimson looks great, very rich colour. The recipes went straight into the book!

    Looks like your getting close to the end of this huge project... Keep going!!
