Even with my sons here, I was able to get in a little late-night painting done on Saturday and Sunday.
Using the colors pictured at top, I began work on the drummer, whose coat would be the same as the facing color for the rest of the battalion. The pic on the above shows the results after the first two colors have been applied.
I have since chosen to paint the legwear as trousers and hose. I hope to post pics of that later, perhaps tomorrow evening.
