How the heading says, here's a tutorial about how I've painted my naps shown here (Click!).
First of all I wanted to paint the 1st Chasseur Company (the light Infantry's fusiliers)  with green Pompons, after the 2nd (blue ones), then the 3rd (orange Pompons) and then the 4rd company with purple/ lavendar pompons. After that the carabiners (Grenadiers) and then the Voltigeurs.

Step 1 - Clean the miniature


Clean moulding errors or slopes and dales with a  scalpel.



Schritt 2 - Ground the miniatur

I always ground with black, but I think white would do the best by linie infantry nevertheless.



Step 3 - Ground the coat

Here I think a lot of different colors would look fine, so I simplye tried out 3 different ones.

Left: VGC Cold Grey + Black + VMC Medium Blue2:2:1
Middle: Black + VGC Cold Grey 1:1
Right: VMC Uniform English + VMC US Field Drab 1:1



Step 4 - Second layer

Just leave the shades.

Left: VGC Cold Grey + VMC Medium Blue 2:1
Middle: Black+ VMG Cold Grey 1:2
Right: VMC US Field Drab



Step 5 - Highlights

Add lights.

Left:  Cold Grey + Medium Blue +  Stonewall Grey 2:1:2
Middle:  Cold Grey
Right: US Field Drab+  German Camo Orange Ochre 1:1



Step 6.1 – Painting the trousers


L.: Bc: 049 Stonewall Grey Lay.: White
M: Bc:US Field DrabLay.: 034 Bonewhite
R: Nothing – I didn’t paint it! The mud and dirt will deliberate it


Schritt 6.2 – Painting white areas

Everything what should be white will be painted now.

Basecoat: 050 Cold Grey
1st layer 1: 049 Stonewall Grey
2nd layer: White



Step 7 – Black areas

BC: Black + 050 Cold Grey 1:1 ,
1st layer:Black + 050 Cold Grey 1:2
2nd Layer: 050 Cold Grey



Step 8 - "cloth" around the shakos - Basecoat


US Field Drab + Black  + Uniform English 1:1:1



Step 10 - "cloth" around the shakos – next layer

Die US Field Drab + Uniform English 2:1


Step 11 - "cloth" around the shakos – last layer

034 Bonewhite + US Field Drab + Uniform English 3:5:2


Step 12 – Painting the Pompon - Basecoat

In this case, the pompon has to be green.

Vallejo MC Luftwaffe Camo Green + Black 3:1




Schritt 13 – Painting the Pompon - Layer


VMC Luftwaffe Camo Green und Foundry Buff Leather C1:2.



Step 14 - Kleine Details

We all know the P-Minis, and we all know that these are so detailed and now we have to paint these!

Rucksack: 045 Charred Brown > US Field Drab > Foundry Buff Leather C / 034 Bonewhite / White -  You also can paint 045 Charred Brown in form of cowblot

Leatherbands: 045 Charred Brown > 145 German Camo Medium Brown > US Field Drab

Copper/bronze: 058 Brassy Brass > Wash with black

Silber/Metall: 054 Gunmetal Metal > Wash with black



Step15 – The skin - basecoat

066 Tan + Black 5:1



Step 16 – The Skin – 1st layer

041 Dwarf Skin


Step 17 – The skin – 2nd layer

041 Dwarf Skin + 003 Pale Flesh 2:1



Schritt 18 – Rifleshafts and mud

(dry-)brush  and dabed the trousers and clothes with VMC Burnt Umber
Paint the rifleshafts with Spearshaft A+ Black3:1 > Spearshaft A> Spearshaft B

They look very good Stephan, thank you for posting them.  Smiley The mud effect is particularly good.

One tiny criticism, if you don't mind, is that it's quite hard to see what you've done to the figures against such a colourful backdrop as the box art - plain white or light blue would be a lot better.

Thanks! Yes, I know - a lot of guys already told me on other forums - the next tutorial (how to do the bases) will be on a white background.

I have not done Nappies since I, age 10, ploughed my index finger through a rank of Airfix Black Watch, simulating grape shot. But this is a bloody nice tutorial (although I agree with Sir Jolly) so you've got yourself a sticky, mate!
