    This was a ltd edition from MAB which I have just completed for the BMSS Bugle call in Nailsea but didn't get there for various reasons.
    Painted in acrylic and inks and shows a member of the 4e Hussards on 1796. I have just noticed a few areas that need a touch up with paint, always the same when you enlarge a photo.

    HI Ralph, lovely to see you well and back on Planet Figure.
    MAB is short for M. Bruno who has started his own limited Edition Range mainly in 54mm. He also has a 75mm range for "special customers" with a higher price but limited, limited edition. LOL

    Thank you Neal, the pose drew me to the figure, you also get a apare head with a shako with the wrapping both look good but went for the bicone.

    Hi Ralph nice to see you back.
    MAB is Maurizio Bruno the man responsible for the sculpt and it's slightly bigger than 54mm

    I can't say that this is my own colour pallette, I copied the idea from stoffy01 on his Paint work on the home guard Captain.
    He used 3 colours and I thought I would give it a go. This is what he said

    All Vallejo, Beige Red, highlights with Basic Skintone and darker shading of Mahogany Brown. A very little amount of Jo Sonja Carbon Black diluted for the darkest deepest set area's (some creases).

    So, not my idea but it works
