    Here's the first piece that I've painted post Euro. Kindly given to me by Stu from Stormtroopers Miniatures at Euro it's a 1/16th (120mm) scale bust depicting a private of the 42nd Regiment of Foot (Black Watch) circa 1754-1763 at the time of the French and Indian War - 7 Years War.

    These are a brilliant scale to paint, really love this size for a really enjoyable painting exercise. For this guy I really went for a departure from my normal acrylics and used exclusively Humbrol enamels and oils, even using printers inks for the buttons. Not a drop of acrylic in sight!

    Thanks for looking.

    Sweet work, like the way you have done the hat(or whatever the correct term is) to look like a different texture.
