Completed Critique Coldstream Guard - Waterloo 1815

    Here's my latest finished work, another boxart for CGS Military Figures. This time it's the 1/9th scale Carl Reid sculpted Centre Company Private of the Coldstream Guards at Waterloo 1815. This bust does come with an alternate head/shako option without the cover but seeing as he's at a wet and muddy Waterloo I went for the cover. Painted entirely in Jo Sonja's. Hope you like him.

    Thanks for looking,

    A fantastic piece of work. I have this in my 'to do' pile. If it comes out a fraction as well I'd be ecstatic!

    I am trying to paint mine at the moment, still a long way to go but nowhere near yours.
    Superb painting and the finer details are even better.
    All the best

    I use a Nikon D3000 with 18-55 lens using manual settings of Shutter 1/4 and Aperture F8. Figure is placed in a 50cm soft light tent cube with overhead daylight striplight and two 125w 5500k lights either side placed about 3 feet away.

    Yes Brian it's freehand. I was thinking while I was painting him that it was going a bit quick, then I remembered the star and garter! I over-painted it twice before I got it right. Thank god for the optivisor!
