    Hi to all......

    This is Andrea's Imperial Guard Grenadier.

    Face is ready and just a bit of touch ups in moustache, sideburns and hair remain (I hastily took him to the hairdresser to be just ready for these couple of LOUSY pics :D) but that must wait 15 days as I must construct a small crib for my lovely niece which I plan to deliver by the 1st December :eek:

    As I said they are LOUSY pics as the light seemed to diminish the face :(!!
    Maybe a darker background for the next photo shoot out :D

    Vergilius, Marc, Tony, Joe my buddy, Balazs thank you all for looking at the LOUSY pics (believe me they are :()

    Arthur, thanks to you as well and yes that's the "look" I wanted to depict as he's in his forties for sure having the two upturned chevrons on his left sleeve which mean that he's over twenty years in service....Now do I look that "old" :D :(? BTW, I paint in acrylics........

    Sam and Steve, thanks to you both as well and hope that after this eve, you can post back and REALLY say these are LOUSY pics after you've seen this dude in the flesh :D :p

    Marcel, so kind of you........really appreciate your concern, however even though a bit better, its still a LONG way from the face I painted :(

    I will post some DECENT photos just before I continue the figure, which means after I make the crib for my lovely niece :eek: :D

    Cheers,

    I've seen this at the club yesterday. Crappy pics that really don't do any justice whatsoever.
