    I'm not 100% sure on the scale although I'm confident that it is 90mm, also I don't know who the manufacturer are, again I'm confident that it is a Bonaparte figure a Bath based company, who now own Poste Militaire, although in speaking with them, they don't recall it.

    Anyway comments as always, I was challenged with this piece as still be a newbie to figures, struggle with whites, yellows and in this case young skin complexions.

    I thourghly enjoyed it though and feel that I am improving with every figure.

    Your comments are most welcome, good or bad, but would appreciate any critique you might like to give so that I can improve.

    Thanks for looking.

    White's are a very difficult color. I'm struggling with white this moment with a figure that 'm doing.
    Improving is very important. As long as you feel confortable with every figure you are holding the pleasure in painting figure's.

    Very nice on this young boy.
    When the trouser on the knee is dirty it seem to me he is fallen.
    So I would do a littlebit dirt on the jacket or the ellbows.
    But thats only a detail for me.
    good work.

    Thanks everybody for your comments so far.

    Yes I think I should have shaded the yellow a bit more and I also should have put a bit of dirt on the elbows of the jacket. Unfortuantely this piece is no longer in my possesion, as Under Two Flags had it in the shop and he has closed down. :-( and I can no longer contact him to get it back, or possibly the money as he was trying to sell it!!

    You're definitely heading in the right direction Tim.
    Lovely bit of freehand on the drum.
