This my new job, progress, 54 mm Alexander Dumas.
Very nice. What are the original, metal model? Looking forward to see it painted.
Very nice job !
Great figure Davide!
Few details on how you created this gem are much appreciated
I'm sure that the painting will be at the same level.
Will follow closely.
Nice and interesting sculpt ! Hope it will be a commercial item!
But be careful Alexander Dumas (Father) , in the the French culture is the writer how wrote "the three Musketeers".
The Napoleon's General was Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie, also known as Alexandre Dumas, (25 March 1762 – 26 February 1806)
Dumas Fils (Son) wrote " La dame aux Camelias"
Quite hard there's in fact 3 Alexandre Dumas !
One Général, 2 famous writers (In France).
Another picture of the Général
A quite good history on :
The Three Dumas :
A very nice mounted figure.
I wish you every success with the painting Davide.
Great detailed information Rigaud my friend.
You always know something about everything. You are the top man
All the very best,
Thanks a lot , i'm just interesting in history, one of the base of our hobby !
Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie
His bronze statue.
A bronze statue erected in his likeness Place Malesherbes in Paris in 1890, never opened, remained veiled until 1913. Before the Nazis founded thirty years later to recover the metal. Glory, as Borges says, is also a form of forgetting.
Great conversion. Like this one.
I like it, plus it's a mounted figure... Looking forward to next steps.
