WIP 1/16th ? Bengal Lancer

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Geoff Charman, Sep 17, 2019.

    I have found at the back of a shelf a part painted bust of this Bengal Lancer that I had forgotten about, I think he is about a 1/16th one but just cannot remember the make but I think it was in one of Nap's garage sales.

    The face had been done and with all the colours blocked in, but the dark blue was some how shiny so I have given him a coat of docrafts Artiste acrylic Night Blue which I know finishes as a lovely matt finish, also the shoulder scales a gave a wash of Citadel Nuln Oil.

    He is now all dry so I can now mess about with him.

    Finished my messing about, so shoulder scales highlighted, the red given a lighter shade and then pin-washed on the edges and shadow areas with very diluted Raw Umber Artist's Oils then dry-brushed on the high points with very little White Artist's oils using a flat brush , a bit old school I know but I think it works for me and gives me the result I like.

    Thanks Tony, most of him I had already painted probably a couple of years ago but it had got at the back of a shelf and forgotten behind tins, etc. I just continued him.

    Cheers

    Thank you Bob, I couldn't find the uniform colours as displayed on the box, or for the plume, but did for that as I used.

    PS Pierre is right it's Amati ...scale is 1/12th although larger compared with more recent releases ...IMO !

    Great job Geoff. Love the flesh tones on this and fine work on the head dress stripes. One of my favourite periods for figures.

    Thank you Neal, he has a nicely sculpted face which helps a lot, never really know know the colours for the Indian skin but think I managed it with this one. I do struggle with stripes now but think it came off this time, I really like the Victorian era as well for uniforms as well.

    Cheers
