    My take on the Avanpost 75mm Chasseur.
    I have painted him as a Sgt, Voltigeur Company of 15th Light Infantry 1812.
    I have added a moustache, lengthened the side burns and finally added a long service stripe on the left arm. This was made from masking tape and stuck on with wood glue.
    Hope you like it.

    Another winner, Bob. Like the blues & the weathering around the edges of the cartridge pouch.

    Thank you Nap, I always thought it was a requisite to have some service behind you before joining a grenadier or Voltiguer company, I may be wrong though.
    Thank you for your comment mate, always appreciated.
    Stay safe mate.

    That's a classic figure Bob, and you have done it full justice. The Napoleonic period is certainly one of the most fascinating and challenging eras to model. Though they are "old hat" now, I often delve into my L & F Funcken volumes just to get inspired by those classic uniforms.

    Thankyou Phil,
    It's a very challenging period of History and I keep going back to this era. My true love is mid Victorian but keep seeing all the lovely Napoleonic figures.
    Thanks again for the kind comment, much appreciated.
    Stay safe.

    Very nice looking piece......Am I mistaken or are you getting older and flipping the dials from 54mm to 75mm....?:)....Keep up the good work.

    Hi Wayne,
    Yep getting older, I still love painting 54s but I found these Avanpost figures and they cry out to be painted. Metal Models and Troop54 are a favourite. Thanks for looking in.
    Stay safe.
