    Hey All

    Put the finishing touches on this Metal Modeles, 54mm Trumpeter of the 4th Chasseur a Cheval de Ligne. Painted with Vallejo acrylics. The customer will pick it up tomorrow... hope he's pleased with the final outcome.

    As always, comments and critiques are most welcome.

    Cheers

    Colin

    Thanx for the kind words, I very much appreciate it. Except for the grey horse :mad: I had some fun painting this one.

    The plants on the base are from a model train store... they come on a strip, you pinch off a piece the size you want (they are set in a silicone-like backing that's a little bit sticky) and stick it to the base with a touch of glue. If you make the pieces different sizes and try to place them randomly, it gives a good impression of weedy, wild ground cover.

    As for the yellow and green... I just really like the Aurore colour and have a mix that really seems to work. The green is difficult to work but I like the final tone. I was glad to have a chance to paint some different colours for a change... painting Napoleonics, one can easily get sick of painting reds, blues and whites all the time. Gotta keep things fresh!

    Thanx again gentlemen

    Dear Colin, I think a good job, I like the horse, you've played the mantle mottled green, very nice, I'd work a little 'more' the grass, and 'too bright, try to better focus the camera, could be photographs, bravo good job! hello David

    Davide... thanks for the advise on the horse painting, I'll use it on the next one. As for the pics, my camera is a crappy little snapshot camera with no adjustments or settings.
    Pedro... thanks for the kind words... I primed the Chasseur last night... ready to go!!!!

    Colin, i am sure it looks very brite cause the lighting.
    I think the "aurore" and pasture looks yellowish and i am sure is the camera and not the paint job or gorund effect color.
    Regardless , your work looks better and better with every figure , you definitively have a good eye for groundwork.
    cheers my friend

    I really need a new camera... but I'd rather spend what little "fun money" I have on figures than a fancy camera.

    When I first started posting here, my groundwork was horrible! Thanx to a few tips and SBS's from PF members and a trip to the model train store (better material=better groundwork) I feel more confident doing bases. The best advise I got was to study pictures of the setting I'm trying to recreate and use natural material whenever possible. My wife still hasn't figured out my sudden interest in rooting around in her garden:whistle:
