    I am half way through painting this figurine, oils and acrylics.
    I have painted the trousers (pants) black, just to be different but it was the colour of the officer's fatigue dress.
    Still some shading and highlights to paint. The groundwork is complete but may need some highlights

    Cheers Nap, yes I will push the highs further but not a lot. This was a find on e-bay and cheap too.
    Hope your move went smoothly.

    Another winner Bob - liking your interpretation of the rifle green coat & the shading on the pants. Nice groundwork too.
    Is the figure white metal or resin?

    Thank you Chris, the figure is white metal, which is perfect. The sword can be worked with a needle and made to shine with just a coat of varnish.
    More to come

    5th Georgia Infantry 1861. Sculpted many years ago by Raul Garcia Latorre. I also have it but never put it together and painted it. The hand holding the cap was missing. It is a great sculpt although I think the head is a bit too small for his built.

    Tannvargur, Thankyou the kepi is safe, just makes painting the kepi easier.

    Chris, just make sure its a steel sewing needle, this was a tip I got years ago from the Fostern brothers.

    Pedro, thank you my friend

    Ken, glad you like this, I think some groundwork can overpower a figure.
    regards to you both.

    Looks very good Bob. Just finished my own version and after seeing your start, my guy is headed back for a "facial". BTW the figure is a LATORRE MODELS figure (at least mine is),

    Thank you and you are right.
    He is lovely to work on but the hand with the kepi is a pain to fix onto the arm.
