    Guys this was on my workbench lately. Nice figure but not easy at all. Not that happy with the pics but you get the general idea. Its 75mm by Pegaso

    Excellent job. Lovely figure. I find lace work like that hellish... and this figure is loaded with it! You tackled it well, very impressive.
    If you have any hints on painting lace like this, a fellow Nappy fan would be forever grateful.:notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

    Great job

    Guys thanks for the positive feedback.
    The cape was not a real problem to assemble. All goes together well which makes life a little easier. As for the painting, if you plan carefully you shouldn't have any problems.
    For those who asked about the lacework. Here's how I do it.
    I always undercoat with a dark brown all the lace. Then I mix some old gold(vallejo) with some Japanese khaki(Andrea) and a touch of brown. The resulting mix is hidious but do not worry at this stage. For this figure I needed a rather rich complexion to the gold braid due to the rank of the subject so I highlighted with the base + some gold by Maimeri( You can also use Vallejo rich gold). Shadows are applied with base+ dark brown. Deep shadows are AV822. Now for the make or break part...the catch lights on the braid. I apply these as edging on all the braid in strategic areas with a creamy yellow colour ( old Andrea no.50). Hope all this makes sense
