Vallejo Model Color 70950 169 Black for the bonnet, shako, boots, cockade, cartridge pouch, gaiters and shoes. I would normally have the grey 'marching order' gaiters but followed the instructions in this instance.

The saltire was painted Vallejo Model Color 48 70898 Dark Sea Blue

Humbrol Acrylic 29 Matt Dark Earth for the India Pattern musket, pack, flag pole and bag pipes. I would have painted the packs black, but these look nothing like as square and solid as the Trotter knapsacks depicted on other figures, so followed the instructions.

Humbrol Acrylic 106 Matt Ocean Grey for the great coat

Moving on to the 01743 Hussars, I have 5 extra men and 8 extra horses (without bases) that will be painted as French Hussards with 3 of the new set. The 9 remaining new pieces will be painted as per the instructions.

I started with the horses, roughly blending the colours as I applied the paints.

Vallejo Model Color 1 70951 White + 159 70991 Dark Sea Grey = musicians’ horses

Vallejo Model Color 149 70872 Chocolate Brown  +168 70862 Black Grey + Vallejo Model Color 169 70950 Black = first squadron horses

Vallejo Model Color 140 70984 Flat Brown + 149 70872 Chocolate Brown = second squadron horses

Vallejo Model Color 140 70984 Flat Brown + 114 70879 Green Brown = third squadron horses

This may become complicated with the variety of uniforms I intend to portray. I think the busbies/colpacks were replaced with shakos by 1815, so these are more fitting for prior to 1813.
