Sunday brought good progress on the regiment with the base colors going on quickly and the flesh given a wash of Citadel "Flesh Wash." I also did a bit of further research on Gerard's and found the reenactment of the regiment in the Sealed Knot Society. Their blue coats are quite a dark navy shade and the unit wears yellow stockings. I'm not sure if they found the stocking color in a period reference or if is a modern choice, but it looks good so I'm going with it to give the unit an additional splash of color. Also, I'm going with a slightly brighter blue overall than a dark navy colorbecause I have always found dark blue a challenge to get right at the scale of a typical gaming figure.
