In comment about the 'whites' another way to get 'different' looks is to pay attention to the 'undercoat' colours.

Blue gives a cool look, while brown and even orange can give warmer/dirtier looks (whichever way you want to take it). Purple can also provide a very 'deep' view of the final 'white' colours.

I have been doing some Napoleonic Austrians and have found these interesting combinations useful in 'setting apart' the similarly painted units. The purple or dark blue undercoat on officers looks really sharp!

Great work as usual!
You seem to have a very good handle on painting "white" uniforms. The dark creases and such works very well.
Good points, Murdock.

Morning John,

Your latest figures are absolutely great, especially the durmmer.

Best Regards,

I really like what your doing here. Your efforts to document your project are excellent. The figures look great in sculpt and paint.

This page is my inspiration to do my own 18th century figures.
