Re: Blue or blue-gray, as long as it is a different blue from the french, but

I completely agree with Scott - 3 Cheers to everyone!

I am also fascinated by the excellent suggestions of colors made by everybody. I really like the idea of a range of colors produced, even within one army. This would make for a great collection.

I would even like to see the Crimean armies done in a few colors, as we've recently discussed, 17th Lancers in Blue to go with Heavies in Terracotta Red.

The choice of plastic and colors S*R uses is excellent. The figurines are always a nice, flat color which shows details well.

The CW British Heavies were the first set which really caught my eye and made me look at the fine S*R sculpting. Still, I love those helmets with the pointed front and fine accoutrement details and they remain one of my favorite sets (with other CW sets) to this day!

Wow, 1813 prussians in strelets output: a dream about to come true! Dark blue would be fine.

Cheers,

Re: Blue or blue-gray, as long as it is a different blue from the french, but

We're in this together, Scott.
If you non-painters didn't buy your share of figures, who knows how small the market would be.
I think a possible minor inconvenience with undercoating is the least we can do.

Re: Question

my choice would be flat black or a dark charcoal gray. the original HAT Uhlans were made of that color & it looked fantastic! i know a lot of people will dsiagree with this, but many Prussian units of the time wore black & it will be a nice contrast to the current colors to other army's sets.

Re: Question

I'd go for medium blue or grey.

Re: Re: Question

I came late to the party but count me in as saying whatever color the non-painting crowd prefers is fine by me. Once the primer starts flying they're all the same to these eyes.

Nice of SR to ask, as always.
