    I have finally started painting the diorama. Inevitably the first figure is the Drum Major. I know I promised an sbs and since these are pics of the finished piece I posted a little sbs for the painting of the face for the 2nd figure , which is the drummer. You find this in another post. Please feel free to comment

    Guy , Roc thanks. Yes I do agree that the whites came out rather good, especially the coat.

    I agree. The overall figure is wonderful but the whites really rock.

    I agree, the whites are really nice, but the hat with those feathers is great, you don't often see musicians modelled, which is a shame as they have some very showy uniforms..

    great stuff Stephen.

    Steven,
    Great looking figger!
    How did you pull off the purple. Tremendously hard color to get right and you nailed it! It compliments the white tones very nicely. Well done!

    All the best

    Guys , thanks for your kind words.

    Roy , it's true that you don't see that many musicians modelled. In fact I have been sculpting a series of musicians from the napoleonic period both for myself and as commisions.Their flamboyant uniforms are irresistable to me.

    Patrick , I don't want to bluff or anything but the easiest color on this figure was the purple.In fact I used a colour straight from the tin for it. Here's the mix:
    Base : AC23
    H/L : base + AV815
    H/H/L : H/L + AV928
    L/L : base + A950
    L/L/L : L/L + AV950

    As for he whites I believe that I posted some mixes a while back but if anyone needs any mixes for this color( or any other for that matter ) just ask

    Beautifully done...as always! The purple and white are remarkable. They don't look like purple and white paints on resin - they look like purple and white cloth! Just outstanding.

    All the best,
    Dan
