    Hi guys

    This is a 1::54 Officer of Bersaglieri Regiment, Adua battle from EMI models

    Battle of Adwa, Italian ADUA (March 1, 1896), military clash at Adwa, in north-central Ethiopia, between the Ethiopian army of King Menilek II and Italian forces. The Italian army advanced to Adwa with 14,500 men against an Ethiopian army of some 100,000; the columns, moreover, were disorganized and lacked adequate maps of the area. Humiliatingly routed on March 1 by Menilek's forces, the Italians retreated through difficult terrain, harassed by a hostile population. As much as 70 percent of the Italian force was killed, wounded, and 3.000 captured. ( 800 captured askaris, regarded as traitors by the Ethiopians, had their right hands and left feet amputated.)

    I made some changes to the kit like: the helmet feathers and lace,I added the pistol cord. I create a new base and groundwork and I did a copy of he half shield of the kit and made a completed one.

    I painted all with acrylic Vallejo

    I’ll always appreciate and welcome all yours comments.

    Manejas muy buenos conceptos, son muy originales, pero insisto en que debes mejorar el aspecto anatomico, evitar ser tan rigido en las poses, noto los brazos algo largos en proporcion al cuerpo. Otra cosa es tambien mejorar el aspecto tecnico, manejas muy bien los colores pero no la tecnica, suavizar un poco mas las transiciones, evitando cortes bruscos entre luz y sombra...

    To Marc: my thanks for the comments

    To Ernesto: como indique la figura no es mia, es de la EMI y el escultor es Nello Rivieccio y en los PP de las fotos hay, a veces, distorsiones, pero agradezco tus comentarios.
