    Drummer - Enigineer Company of the Imperial Guard - 1811-14- Chronos Miniatures 54mm.

    Hi! I decided to remove the paint from my figure and paint it again. The figurine was unlucky, it fell off the desk, fell into my daughter's hands, and I lost the swrods knot. IMG_20231126_091204.jpg IMG_20231126_091139.jpg IMG_20231126_091111.jpg IMG_20231126_093222.jpg IMG_20231126_093530.jpg

    Thanks! maybe I should add that missing element. It's only a 2mm knot At the moment the "mini drummer" is standing on the shelf facing forward.

    I like it, nice figure nice paint job marred slightly by the sheen. Have you tried the AK ultra matt varnish, it's as good as the old Testors dulcote but can be applied by brush.

    Thanks Simon! I applied two layers of Vallejo polyurethane matt varnish. Probably too thin. I have to use the recommended AK ultra matt.

    Thanks Rob. Painting the same figure a second time was a little easier.

    Hi there

    Nice to see what’s on the bench , interesting subject particularly with the helmet , wise words ref using the AK ultra Matt

    Nice work on the plume ...might I suggest you reposition closer to the holder ...see below

    Think about a simple base and some groundwork perhaps

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks Nap! I've seen these illustrations but now I see the incorrect position of the plume, I'll correct it. I will definitely use the ultra matt varnish.

    Very nicely done - one of my favorite Napoleonic uniforms. I agree that the crest and plume need a matt finish.

    The AK Ultra Matt is great, use it sparingly undiluted in thin coats, it has rescued a fair few of my older figures that looked rather shiny.
