Painting Nassau Infantry
from Baccus in 6mm

A quick guide to how I painted my 6mm Nassau Infantry using Baccus French Line Infantry (NFR1).

1. Undercoat – Citadel Abaddon Black
Paint the undercoat in black and let dry completly.

2. Green – Citadel Waaagh Flesh
Paint the jacket and trousers green. Apply the paint by drybrushing using a Citadel Medium Drybrush. Use a stiff paint mixture on the drybrush wiping off any extra on a cloth before use. Run the brush along the surface of the figures, leaving paint on the raised areas, but allowing the black undercoat to show through. It doesn't matter if you even cover other areas such as face, musket or knapsack.

3. Green – Citadel Warboss Green
Repeat the above drybrushing using the lighter green shade.

4. Brown – Citadel Doombull Brown
Paint the hair, the musket and the knapsack. It doesn’t matter if you paint the hair too wide and cover part of the shako.

5. Grey – Citadel Administratum Grey
Greatcoat roll.

6. Flesh – Humbrol 61 Matt Flesh
Face and Hands.

7. Black - Citadel Abaddon Black
Shako and Cartridge pouche.

8. Buff – Citadel Averland Sunset
Cords and Tassels on the shako and the Cross-belts.

9. Gold - Citadel Gehenna’s Gold
Shako plate and Cartridge pouch plate

10. Silver - Citadel Runefang Steel
Bayonet.

11. Earth – Citadel Graveyard Earth
The Base.

12. Matt Varnish

13. Special Notes
Officers have Gold epaulettes
Use the following flag. Print it 6mm high on a laser printer.
The staff should be brown. Cut away the Eagle so that it looks like a spear point and paint it gold.
The drum should be yellow with mid blue rims.
