Prussian Artillery Blue.

Prussian battalion gun with medium blue carriage and blackened metal fittings. The exceptional saturation, opacity and longevity of modern paints needs to be counter-balanced in historical miniature painting by the use of desaturated and shaded colours, followed by weathering.
