    Back again,

    Finally assembled the Chasseur tonight! I'll call the painting on the rider 95% complete for now... a few post assembly touch ups, the sabre hilt, stirrups... odds and sods. I'm going to leave the sabre blade for the absolute last (if I do it now, dollars to doughnuts, it will get broken), I left it unprimed and will burnish it before attatching it to the hilt.

    Next... the horse... dapple grey and a leopard skin saddlecloth :confused: A huge challenge ahead!!!

    As always, comments and critique are most welcome....

    Cheers

    Colin

    Looking good!! This is getting along nicely! The sabretache looks it's great, not easy to paint that.
    Now to the horse...good luck with him ;) as I said before, I've a figure internacional magazine explaining the painting of that type of saddle in PDF, if you need I send it you to.

    Keep on Rockin'
    Best Regards

    Good work so far Colin. All the details are very cleanly painted. A suggestion, despite is more work for you, you could add more light and shadowing to the laces of the cuffs of the dollman and pellise?

    Colin, this is looking just awesome!! Your painting is improving incredibly fast...
    good luck with the dapples on the grey horse, take your time and it will turn out great(y). It's not hard, just fiddly, but the Chasseur already shows you have the patience.
