These guys have been sitting on my painting desk for quite a few weeks now...
So I decided to get some paint on them...
The 2nd Paris Municipal Guard...
I am very pleased with these... they make for a very different French unit.
They are the new Perry Miniatures Plastic French Infantry... I altered the bearskins on the Voltigeurs to remove the front plate and bearskin patch.
I decided to use a bit more Contrast Colours than I would normally... I am interested in what I can do with them...
The Tunics are... Citadel... Evil Sunz Scarlet... Then a coat of Contrast Blood Angels Red followed by a highlight Evil Sunz Scarlet.
The Facings are... Citadel... Warboss Green... Followed by Quickshade Green Tone wash and highlight with the original shade.
The White bits are... Citadel... Corax White.. Followed by a wash of Contrast Apothecary White... this was then highlighted back up to an off white for the clothes and cords... the belts were taken up to a pure White.
The Pack and Gun were painted... Citadel... Mournfang Brown... and washed with a couple of coats of Aly's Brown Liquid.
The paints are..
The bases are Warbases...
So... Next up.... More Sassanids.
All the best Aly
