Burtzenia forces get another layer.

OK so now I can call them by their correct name, since the white uniforms are what I have settled on. Yes, I am certain that when you look at them right now they look rather --- blue.

Not much more to write about right now, as I must be off to stay ahead of 3 boys...

They do look rather blue . . . is this some kind of an undercoat? Or just a quirk of the light and film?

It is the 'shadows' undercoat as lite to medium blue looks the best behind white or gray uniforms.

I painted the first layer in light blue, then this is a thinned out blue ink.

Next up is even lighter blue, then an almost drybrushed layer of an even lighter blue.

Then lapels colors and finally belts etc...

Are these troops the ones destined to be commanded by Prinz Robert Axe of Burzenia?

Instead of Austria, Alex's Brigadier could be Burzenian . . . and eventually he might even be able to game against you with "his" Burzenian troops -- not just as someone's ally.
