    Hello all fellow PF members.
    Finally I finished my Dragoon. As stated in the topic it's at 54mm from Andrea. A rather old kit. I really had fun finishing it, and personally I think it's one of my best works.
    Your comments and critics are more than welcome.

    Very nice work. You did a great job on him. I especially like the groundwork because every other time I've seen this guy, he's in an indoor setting. Putting him outdoors really sets him off. One question (well, actually 2 questions)-did you use oils or acrylics? If acrylics, what colors did you use for the tabletop? I just started painting a cowboy figure (Andrea's Tom Doniphon) & he's standing on a saloon floor that should be about the same color as your table.

    Very nice, Xenofon! It's refreshing to see a casual setting for a soldier so colorful.

    Thanks a lot for your comments Roc. They are always encouraging and welcome.

    Mike I paint exclusively in oils but still if you want the method that i painted the table here it is: Undercoating with humbrol (119 or 117 can't really remember, it's a light brown color), and then washes with Burnt Umber and Raw umber. Finally dry brushing with light mix of raw umber and white.

    Jason, thanks a lot for your comments :)

    Xenofon,

    I echo the others. Nice painting, and some unusual setting. But that make's it outstanding.
