My first formation of Bavarians is done within a week of starting them!
This consists of two 8 figure groups and 2 Big Men, an officer and an NCO.

The Hät figures aren't terrific sculpts, there are some soft details, but the price can't be beat at less than Cdn$1/figure including shipping. So a quick and tidy paint job over my standard runny burnt umber base coat without any highlights etc. and done! Kinda took me back 40 years to my Airfix figures, except this time the paint won't flake off!
I found a shade of blue I liked. Lighter than the test figure, but darker than the sky blue in the Osprey. Happily it matches the shade of blue on my Bavarian flags, which is probably a good hint. I got the flags from Warflag.com. The blue I ended up using is an Americana craft acrylic appropriately named "Uniform Blue."

For the raupenhelm I used black ink for the leather helmet so it would contrast with the dull black woolen crest.
