    great work!!

    I think the hat is too small.
    But otherwise the figure is exceptional

    I think the photo should be this way round (!):

    That photo is post Crimean war, the figure is Napoleonic. The feather bonnet was smaller then and was changed during the peace running up to the Crimea.

    Thank for your nice words :)

    I thakn you, so much :)

    Hi Vitalino. Tahnks so much :) Regarding the cap: Scotty is right, this is napoleonic figure (1815). At that time bonnets were smaller :).

    Many Thanks Daniel;) . Unfortunately, the piece will issue a small company on toy soldiers and their painting is really just the basics. But maybe someone buys unpainted cast and creates a nice paint :).

    Hi Phil, thank you wery much for your praise :)

    Thanks so much for likes too, guys :)

    Cheers Borek

    Beautiful work so far. Im sure this will be popular when finished an released. I wonder if the scale will be consistent with the famous 54mm Latorre Highlander from this period.

    Very well sculpted figure! Very Latorre style! But maybe the shape of the bonnet could be a problem. This looks smaller than that of the Crimean era, but of a wrong shape for the napoleonic one. In the early XIX sec. feathers on the bonnet were put around the diced band of the hat but they weren't dome shaped the way they became in the following decades....and the feathers were of a different kind, larger and less bulky.

    Díky moc, Palo, od sochaře Tvého kalibru je to velká pochvala a vážím si jí :). Děkuju ;)

    Thank you very much, Mat :) . Real size is approximately 60 mm (56 mm from base to eyes)

    Thanks so much for praise and thanks for the constructive comments in particular. It's still WIP, I edited. Thanks a lot :)

    My mistake, toy soldier should be small t. Figurine issuing a small company that makes toy soldiers (www.hannahminiatury.net). They only sell figures painted in the style of toy soldiers, but it is possible to agree the buy of unpainted figures. But I must point out that they have cast gravitation, and therefore not within the quality of castings produced by spin casting. Thanks for interesting, but no release date has been established in this time...

    Thank you very much for your word :)

    Thanks so much, Marc ;)

    Thank for the praise, Paul, I apreciated your evaluation :)

    :D He drew his sword before he put his foot on the rock:ROFLMAO:

    Thank so much Guys

    Cheers Borek :)
