    I'm now coming towards the end of the polish lancer and have now started the pioneer,so as I like to keep things moving I thought this next piece would be perfect,its a straight up and down bust consisting of 2 pieces ( head and body ) of Marshal Blucher produced by Mitches Military Models,i've had this piece a while now and decided to paint him up.
    There is a very good one been posted on the forum now should anyone like to see what a painted version looks like,cannonball has done a very good job of it.
    I've always loved reading stuff about the Prussian army of the Waterloo Campaign and I have to admit the Blucher is my favourite Napoleonic personality.
    Pavol has created an excellent sculpture of the man himself and the face is just crying out to be painted as it has real character,i plan to paint this one along side the coldstream pioneer so to keep my hand in.

    Hi Brian,
    This one will be interesting to watch. I look forward to seeing how you apply the Smudger stamp on this regal uniform.

    Take care

    Lovely piece, have it myself, not painted though but that is probably good, now I can snatch some tricks and ideas for inspiration. Only problem could be, that yours end up so beautiful, that I want to sell mine......LOL
    Will follow, happy painting ;-)

    Cheers Brian

    Made an early start on this one,i've completed the first stages of the flesh and hair on this,these areas will both need more work yet, before moving onto the uniform.
