    Here's some pics of my progress.
    The figure is 70% completed, need to work on the pants, vest, and some minor touch ups.
    The African fleshtone is as follow:
    Started with a mix of German camo black/brown, burnt umber and chocolate brown.
    Lights: added Vallejo game "earth" to the base,last lights i tried some Vallejo Orange-brown
    shadows added more german camo black-brown to the base.
    To blend alltogether i've use Brown glaze well diluted 1:10 ratio
    The coat as i mention on the initial post, i have used the Vallejo Game blue-black/.
    For lights i used a bottle of Prince August Acrylics labeled " Bleu Moyen",
    for shadows i've used Vallejo blue wash.
    As for the King's royal livery, i painted the stripes in vallejo sunset red with a little bit of andrea Napoleonic red,and then trimmed the edges with pure white and made some x's to give the look of the livery.
    I hope you guys like.
