Re: Re: Re: crimean war

Hi Hank,

what problem do you have with the Waterloo guys?
Beside the dancing flag-bearer they are looking not too bad for me.

I've painted them as Bersaglieri (the uniform can be used for the Crimea), Roumaninan light infantry for 1877 and without the feathers as Mexican imperial infantry in red.

They are even suitable for ACW as the 39th new york voluteers

Thank you, Zsolt for the most interesting link! :-)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: crimean war

Hi Zsolt,

oh, ACW again

Forget your thoughts, the 39th New Yorkers had the old Piemontese uniform with Frock coat like in 1836 not the new one

Ok, guys especially the ACW freaks, proof me that I am wrong with this...



the plastic lip on the hat is too small to paint hilight.Looks more like a bowler hat(chuckle).The feathered hat only at a certain angle resembles the hat which should have been stressed more as the main distinguyishing feature of the uniform but Its almost obscured.Paint disappointedly runs off...
