When painting your own uniform design it's always worth testing it on a couple of test pieces before subjecting an entire regiment to something that looks good in your head but might not work in real life (!). To this end I painted up a couple of spare HaT Voltigeurs in my proposed Aquilonian Line Infantry uniform.
Overall I am pleased with the look, my only concern is whether the dip I have used is too strong and whether I should use a lighter one. It certainly provides a nice degree of depth and a slight "on campaign" feel but I'm not sure. As I need to get a new can of white undercoat before tackling the first unit I have a day or two to ponder.
Finally, the Bavarians have arrived. Lovely models but moulded in a shocking bright mid-blue!
