Quote from: Westmarcher on 12 November 2020, 11:26:10 PMMy apologies for not being in a position to recommend any particular shade of blue. I used to have a French Napoleonic army (long since sold) and naively used Humbrol French Blue - so wrong! But if ever start a new French Napoleonic collection, I do know that it will be a very dark blue. I'm not a "the smaller the scale, the lighter the shade" believer myself - I think you'll find that there is enough colour on the facings, plumes, breaches, bayonets, helmets, breastplates, etc. that will make your figures stand out and look really authentic.

How does it compare to Portuguese or Spanish Blue and the blue in other armies the French fought, so they avoided confusion and fraternal blue-on-blue conflict. Today I started my own Peninsular War armies ... in 2mm. I am not sure if facings, plumes, breaches, bayonets, helmets, breastplates, etc. that will make your figures stand out and look really authentic will apply at 2mm.[Picture pigment fades and darkens over time, whatever that might imply].
