Prussian colour test

I had the outlaws over on boxing day and I managed to cook a slap up Christmas dinner for 12 adults plus the children without to much of a hitch, apart from having a bit of a Gordon Ramsay temper tantrum as I was about to dish up and the Mrs decided she needed to pop out.
  Even more amazingly I managed to sneak upstairs to my hidihole during the festivities and paint this Prussian chap up. I must admit after finishing 18 British heavy Dragoons with all their laced dapper uniforms, the simplicity of the Prussian uniform is a Godsend. I'm not sure how long he took as I was only able to sneak away for moments at a time, luckily I was never caught by the boss!
  I am happy with the result and have started the rest of his company of 8 which will be the start of the first battalion 2nd infantry regiment. This I will be completing as and when between commissions, so not sure how long until you will see the finished article. I also need to source the flags, any ideas?
 After that I have some nice officers to do as well as my first regiment of Uhlans

Just realised the picture is a bit blurry, better pic to follow soon
