    friends
    after some moment where I left the figure in the showcase I decided to finish it… sometime continue to work on the same piece become boring.

    Elie Krettly is finished… the figure changed some details like the moustache that were added after having seen a Rousselot plate showing the trumpet major with them.

    [IMG]

    Rank is changed, the figure was promoted from trumpet to trumpet major, Elie Krettly had this rank in 1805. he took a “sabre d’honneur” at Marengo and made miracle in Austerlitz. He later became officer flag bearer. To change the ranking I added some lace on the collar, on the pelisse and on the right arm. It was simply lace were only painted.

    Base is very simple. The figure is over charged of colour and I prefer to “mask” the groundwork.

    Your comment are as usually welcome,
