    I've just finished this figure of one of Napoleon's half-pay veterans. I added the moustache, changed the hair, and added a Legion d'Honneur ribbon. It was painted in acrylics.

    Here's an article on demi-soldes that has some information about them:

    Thanks for looking,

    Ed those added touches really do give him an accurate period feel. The medal ribbon adds a nice touch, bring just a little bit of colour to what is otherwise a plain jacket. A job well done.
