French officers sash colours

Re: WSS French Militia

I am in process of doing some of these for the Painting competition so far I am just blocking in the colours, and they have fairly conventional pale grey coats looking but I intend to use some brown & umber washes to shade and some of the highlight will be cream not pale grey The rank and file some ...

Re: Civilian figures for the Period

Thank you for that, brilliant & quick work, I didn't look at Floundery as I can hear my bank manager screaming just at the thought I might.

Re: WARFARE MINIATURES PAINTING COMPETITION

Thank you, though I have to warn you that I may well be far beyond help I have been told so before. I am however on my way to get the figures just need to collect some cash to pay for them first.

Re: Cavalry

I would agree, but till then I would say that Dixon are probably the best fit for size and character. From what I have seen Front rank are a bit bigger, enough that they would look odd especially mixed in the same unit.

Re: WSS French Militia

I would also point out that dyes at this period & much latter where given to fading changing colour & that grey cloth are rather notorious for becoming brownish over time in the field, hence the notorious butter nut.

Re: WARFARE MINIATURES AT UK SHOWS FROM SEPT 2011
