    Hello folks, I have finished my grenadier drummer tonight and was able to get the basing ready for the Soissonais regiment, so I took advantage of the finished figures and already glued them onto the base.
    Unfortunately still waiting for the flags to arrive, it's been like 2 weeks! :sour:.
    I have the fusiliers almost finished, the problem is that is 16 of them, so it will take a little more time but at least I could glued them onto the base and not run the risk of the figures being collecting dust or fall and chipped.
    Good nite to all of ya!

    Looks good Daniel... Great job on the Royal Livery on the drummer. Not easy at this scale!
    I like how they are starting to come together as a group

    Looking fine. Excellent detail painting.
    Very nice on such a small figure, Daniel.

    Thanks my friend!, actually the royal livery wasn't that complicated to do,once you decide on the pattern to do is easy.
    i find that is harder to paint the livery on the bigger scakes cause you really gotta make the intricate pattern.
    thanks fir looking.

    Never thought of it that way but you're right... You can cheat a bit on the smaller scales

    It is almost impossible to draw a pattern like that in such a small scale but the overall result looks fine.

    Hi again, Daniel. Those two I´m working in, belongs to Labayen collection.

    This is the figure of Bolivar, that I painted some time ago.:

    This time I´m doing a single conversion, adding a moustache to the figure and I´m going to paint it in the same way but with red lapels, collar and cuffs, and with the saber in the right hand instead of the hat.

    Me too, I don´t found any figure of san Martín but I know the web of Manes Marzano, which has some argentinian soldiers in 54mm and 120mm. He has, also, a very attractive collection of Hesse Cassel infantry. Maybe you know it. Here´s the link:

    Man, that figure of Bolivar looks great!!! , I like the blue of the coat you've painted and the details, fleshtones are great too.
    I think the conversion will be a great one.
    I saw his website (M Marzano) , he is a fellow countrymen and he's got a very interesting collection of figures, thanks for the pics Eduardo :happy:

    Still lots of works on the ground.
    I am about to finish 6 of the Regimental fusiliers.
    Cheers

    The groundwork looks great Daniel. I'm guessing the shorter grass area comes as a sheet but how did you do the longer grass in the foreground?
    I must say the figures look even better when they are given "context" of the location and being in formation... Very cool

    Colin, the short grass area is a sheet, I used as a base for the groundwork.
    The long grass in the forefront is a patch,cutted to fit some areas, here's the link if you are interested: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Tall-St...=UK_Trains_Railway_Models&hash=item5d400e7f8c
