Re: french grenadiers in great coats

They sure do look nice! A shame the pics are a bit pixelated...

Re: french grenadiers in great coats

A nice paintjob! And I like the Cuirassiers in the next row.

cheers

Re: Re: french grenadiers in great coats

Yes both are realy nice. But I thought the cuirassier 1812 greatcoats were gray, only the carabiniers greatcoat being blue. But maybe I'm wrong.

Cheers,

Re: Re: french grenadiers in great coats

about the greatcoats Tom:

If you have the Osprey about napoleon's Dragoons and lancers, check plate F. It shows a lancer in greatcoat. Although a lancer the colour of the greatcoat would be the same. Don't know which brand of paint you use, but if you use Revell aqua colour I would suggest Staubgrau 77, with a little bit of white to make it lighter.

Cheers,

Christiaan
