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.
