Howdy, excuse the pics, samples of the tirailleurs, voltigeurs and 3rd reg of grenadier a pied.
Better pics when I base them and give the 3rd reg there flag.

Command units, nco's and a few rank n file.



3rd reg of Grenadiers a pied (I do like the look of these)

Various rear shots

Many thanks chaps for your kind comments.

Re the muskets, I use the Ammo Mig weapon colour set.
The wood is red brown base then highlighted down the edges with red brown shine added to the mix.
The metal work is gun metal, the bayonet I usually apply a simple black wash to break up the flat silver appearance.

I don't highlight the gun barrel with a lighter colour, I black prime the figures and always add water to my acrylic paints (though not the ammo wood colours as its extremely watery out of the bottle) so after the 1st application its not as bright as it could be, I just quickly go over the edges or the middle of large areas again with the same paint to create a highlight effect.

Hope that makes some sense.
