First Painting Session

As you may surmise, I have decided to paint the unit as Infanterie-Regiment Nr 5 (Alt-Braunschweig), with straw coloured small-clothes and facings.

The first session went quite well with well thinned coats of flesh-tone and yellow-ochre going on nicely over my matt white undercoat.

I'll call the hands, faces, small-clothes and facings done.

Next time around it will be the red coat-tails and hair. Thrilling, eh?

Glued to my seat. I like the effect so far.

A promising start, young de Latte!

rather inspired by your own recent efforts my dear von Tschatschke. If I ever meet you, I will have no idea how to pronounce your name.
