Here we have the next shiny addition to this collection...
The 1st West Prussian Infantry Regiment No.6...
I picked these up on eBay knowing that I would be stripping them... I have to admit that even I was surprised at the ‘sculptural’ thickness of the paint...
It took three goes to get them down to the metal.... I am glad I made the effort ( I say effort but all I was doing was dropping them in a jar of Dettol)...
I didn’t have any command with shako covers, so they were added with ‘Green Stuff ‘ putty.
So why did I paint this particular unit.... They have a pretty flag.
I think that they have turned out rather well... I have enough figures (now undercoated) for another battalion and I think I will also paint them up as the 1st West Prussian... they get a mostly green and red flag...
The Tunics are... Citadel... Kantor Blue with a diluted wash of Contrast Leviadon Blue.
Trousers and Greatcoats... Citadel... Administratum Grey.
The Trousers were given a wash of slightly diluted Contrast Gryph Charger Grey and highlighted with diluted Administratum.
The Greatcoats were given a couple coats of slightly diluted Contrast Basilicanum Grey followed by a very diluted highlight of Administratum.
The Water Bottles and Greatcoat Guards are... Citadel... Skrag Brown.
The Facings are... Citadel... Mephisto Red.
The Turnbacks are... Citadel... Evil Sunz Scarlet.
The Shoulder Straps... Citadel... Pallid Wych Flesh.
The Muskets and Packs... Citadel... Mournfang Brown.
The Musket Straps are... Vallejo... Cavalry Brown. (I keep forgetting I have this colour... it’s lovely).
The Belts are... Citadel Corax White.
Everything apart from the Tunics,Trousers and Greatcoats was given a wash of Aly’s Brown Liquid and highlighted with the original shade... the Belts were taken up to Pure White.
The paints are Citadel and Vallejo Model Color
The Flag is GMB Designs...
And the bases are Warbases... https://warbases.co.uk/
Next time some Sassanids...
All the best. Aly
