    Hello planeteers,
    Finally decided to work on one of Art Girona's classic figure, drummer of the soria regiment , Pensacola 1781.
    I decided to paint this drummer in a different scheme than blue, so the Irla da regiment would have had red coat, and pants, royal blue vest , cuffs and turn down collar.

    HI Daniel,
    I like the look of this little fellow. The colours of jacket and pants on the drawing look great.
    Have fun with yet another red coat.....before you realise it you will be painting British Soldiers.;
    All the very best

    With your skill Daniel I am sure that you can convert to two more regimental drummers.

    I have painted the red base using a little dab of craft acrylics and mixed with formula P3 skorne Red.
    For the red pants i decided to use vallejo vermilion red, perhaps don't show on the pic but it looks like two complete different Reds . 20141228_191544.jpg 20141228_190140.jpg 20141228_191544.jpg

    Hello planeteers,
    I have made a little bit of progress on this drummer.
    Finished the livery lace and finished the blue cuffs and vest.
    For the lace:
    Base , vallejo silver grey
    Livery: formula P3 "murderous magenta", which is very close to crimson.
    Blue facings:
    Base, Andrea basic blue and a dab of dark prussian blue.
    Lights, added medium blue to the mix.
    Shadows, used vallejo blue wash.
    Cheers

    Hi Nap,
    I find the P3 paints are really nice, they are a little bit more "liquid" than the old citadel, probably same consistency as vallejo game color range, but their coverage is really good and colors dry up to a slight sheen.
    If i was you i would definitely give it a try.
    I don't have many, probably like 7 of them in total and no complaints.
    Ps: they mix with other brands perfect.
    Best regards

    Thanks my friend!, just trying to get the hang of it.
    they tend to turn dull after they dry up ( acrylics) but i am pleased with the result.
    i hope you had a blast with wife and family over there, i am sure it was quite a celebration in the old continent.
    best wishes for you and loved ones.

    Coming along very well Marquis, I have him primed up, but waiting in the drawer for 'the right moment' to really start! Good luck and enjoy him.

    Thanks Anthony, i had this chap for almost 3 years or so, in fact, this is one of 3 of the same that i have.
    I don't remember if the other two were gifts or i bought them on sale somewhere.
    I think i willl be switching heads or convert to something with the other drummers.
    Looking forward to see yours, i am sure it will be an eye catcher one.
    Best regards
