Scene outside a Tabac in the Quartier Francaise

The La Rosee Regiment march to The Old Armoury to have their Standard issued
As may have been remarked here and there at varying times, there is nothing quite like a painting challenge to get the old juices flowing.

Keen observers of Alzheim history will note a La Rosee Regiment fighting in the wars of the 1740s and -50s. This is to be expected of one of Alzheims' oldest Regiments, first raised in 1681 for the Turkish Wars.

Hm. Historical Bavarian or something more lozengy blue and white. The latter I think? Not too sure yet.

Those are wonderful, I have painted enough of that particular casting in the last year to appreciate that is excellent painting.

I love the photograph, Peter J would kill to have that for his website.

Glad you fellows like them! John, I decided early in the process to take a leaf or two out of your book when approaching them, although i cheated and used an Army Painter coloured primer in a spray can. It worked well with some well-thinned "dark tone" applied as a wash. Lots of washed used in general over the figs, too. Black over mid-gray for the most part on all the dark bits.

Superb figures and a great choice of cuff colours...
