    After nearly a month on the road and away from painting, I’m back to making progress on my Hussar bust. This piece was sculpted by Moz Corry for Gordon Mitchell a couple of years ago. It’s a beautiful sculpt that is loaded with detail. 5A1EED03-CF93-4FDA-8A34-7DA1C9D79E3A.jpeg 7EAE2F49-4A50-4586-9103-6A02703E6673.jpeg B8BD8565-2293-44B6-A620-CB64A26F8B14.jpeg 17A7B2AA-A4A0-4B07-96A3-8E652AD431E0.jpeg

    Kurt, Love the facial tones! (y) Lots of personality in the face for certain. Looking forward to seeing the hussar come to life under your brush. Thanks for sharing your work!

    Thanks for the kind words, Nap.

    My primary color for the Argentine Grey is Vallejo Model Color Intermed. Blue 70.903. Shadows are added using Vallejo Luftwaffe Uniform WW II 70.816, and highlights using Vallejo Blue Grey Pale 70.905.

    Hello,
    Since we are on the same subject, I thought I'd leave these pictures from a French site showing Gordon Mitchel's 200 mm full size Hussar of the 2nd regiment. Hope you don't mind .

    These are beautiful kits, Joel. I would be hard pressed to tell you which version I like the best.

    Moz did a terrific job on them.

    Hi Kurt,

    Your version of this kit is absolutely beautiful. I think, however, that the "gris Argentin " should be a little less blueish. Can't wait to see the rest of the painting.

    Thanks, Joel,

    I’m basing my color palette on Histoire & Collections’ second volume on the French Hussars, that indicates that Argentine Grey was more of a pale grey-blue shade, and not the slate grey often used by figure painters. For what it’s worth, I’ve copied the relevant page below.

    Hey Kurt,
    Here are a few examples for the Argentine Grey that I found. Hope that helps.

    Test fitting the pelisse. Still plenty to do with this one, but it’s beginning to come together. 3611D011-26F2-4AA9-BBC9-27CD9A0CFE23.jpeg B8FD30F0-6989-4AF1-A631-7C99C8830DC8.jpeg
