Wig done,, base colors on the helmet, pants and vest.
I admire your courage.Starting new projects but never letting the previous ones unfinished.I also admire the richness of historical information in your postings.Last but not least I admire your patience,enthusiasm and technical skill in bringing these miniatures to life.Kevin I agree with you 100% it's about time someone published a thorough and exhaustive uniform history of the armies of Marlborough.
Thanks Oda, i am happy that you find my threads useful and interesting.
Sometimes i jump from project to project but eventualy get back to it.
These 40 mm really sing with details and you really do bring them out so well ...now get painting ..I shall check back in 4 hours ..all should be finished ...including the horse and the guidon bearer .......
Looking good Daniel ...both you and the figure ...lol
You may carry on now
Thanks your highness hahah
What no pictures !!!!!!.....LOL ....
looking forward to more updates on this .....take it easy Daniel
Pics are coming my friend, popcorn ready?
I have finished the helmet, added the star shaped metal ( don't know the name) thing on either side of the hellmet that hold the straps, added some width to the shoulder belt and painted the base color.
Paimted the vest and this guy it is almost done.
I will have to order the horses since the ones from Front rank are slightly big for the figures a d soes not look well.
A great start ( after munching my way through 2 packs of popcorn ) lto my day seeing this fellow , love the choice of Regiment and the facing colours as said ...I like the helmet and it looks very accurate ..of course .
Look forward to the horse and of course that guidon !
Yep, guidon will get done somehow, wether i buy one or paint one.
I am debating to paimt the sencond figure in another regiment facing , then include an officer unmoumted next to the horse...this are ideas storming in my head at the moment.....
Well.....tonight i was goimg trough some of tbe spare figures i have from Trident, some french fusiliers already painted who were not goimg to be used and decided to convert to the French dragoon, the one i've painted it is nice but slightly smaller , these trident are a little bit more "robust" im size and it will be a greater conversion since i had to cut offf from half of his wast down.
I've been wanting to do this for a while and decided to challenge myself and build up the seated legs and add the boots from the unused mounted figure.
I got rid of the paint easily with acetone, rebiuilt the stand up collar , fitted the head which looks great.
Tomorrow when the putty is already cured i will add the head and work on the seated llegs, vest and turnbacks.
This dragoon will carry the guidon of tje orleans Regiment
I fitted the head and works perfect, i will have to paint the leopard skin pattern on the helmet's turban
OMG .....Arghhhhhhh!!!!!....,..it's a massacre !!!!!!!!!
Blimey what did he say to be cut up like that!...lol ....
But I forgive you as the word guidon was mentioned
Again you show how good you are my friend
Wow, just one project after the other... very, very impressive. And this one is looking great
He said to be a jacobine rather than a Royalist, so, there you go.
He got chopped hababa
Thank you Phil
I finished the Leopard skin turban and primed the torso...
A good explanation there .....
That turban looks real good mate ...I enlarged the pictures....very impressive work
Looking for more from you !!
