    Hi there

    I am having a lot of fun with this creation from Métal Modèles and Pegaso parts.

    The horse anatomy is 100% Métal Modèles, English saddle and pistol holsters are mostly made out of Milliput and thin metal sheets for the gold braids.

    At the end of the day (if I may say so), all going well, I should be having a nice Aide de Camp to Marshall Berthier in his very elegant summer campaign dress.

    Note that the pictures were taken with my cell phone; apologize for the poor quality.

    Regards,

    Very nice paintjob!!!!

    Thanks for the compliment.
    The red saddle cover has been painted with oils.
    Base: Deep cadmium red + light cadmium red + Violet de Bayeux + burnt umber.
    Shade: add more of Violet de Bayeux and burnt umber
    Light: only keep the two cadmium reds and light cadmium red alone for extreme lights.

    Both shade and lights should not be exagerated.

    For now, the horse is absolutely beautiful. The details that you've built yourself are great, and the paint is super. I do not know what kind of phone you have, but the photo is perfect.
    I follow closely the development of this work.
    Cheers.

    The Planet is not the right place to advertise about the phone, but as long as you know it has a fruit-shaped logo...

    I have started with the horseman. The pants are quite difficult.

    If I remember well, Le Cimier figure was wearing a society uniform, therefore not suitable for horse riding. This uniform can be seen at Musée de l'Emperi, near Marseilles.

    For this mounted figure I chose the campaign dress. There is a nice uniform plate by French specialist Rigo about Berthier's Aides de Camp.
