    Mark, my Italian mother taught me the same thing, never rush anything; but the reason why this figure is taking me a long time to paint is because I've been working to many crazy hours at my job.
    Hopefully things will get back to normal, very soon.

    Cheers

    Rocco, My friend,

    Never make more than 8 hours work at one day. I work in a hospital and if the doctors ask me to make this or that after 17.00 hours, i always say there is tomorrow more time then today. ;)
    I'll do it when it cannot wait, but mostly at the time it can wait weeks.
    So we are always in a hurry here under the moon. But we did it to ourself. There is never been written that we gotta rush at our work. We work for money to feed ourself and the familly. Maybe buying some figure's. ;)
    We work to life, but we life not for work. (i hope this make sense).
    So take care to yourself, and a little less work and more painting :)

    Mark, my friend, what you say is very wise and makes perfect sense.
    Some of us spend more time laboring at our jobs than we really should,
    I think we should stop and smell the roses and enjoy ourselves a little more.
    By the way horse is finished and photographed, should be able to post some pictures this weekend, sorry for the delay.


    Cheers

    Hi Rocco

    I've just joined this thread and I must say, looking back, you are doing a terrific job on this "milestone" piece. It is one I have often admired in the old PM catalogue and it's great to see it being done such justice.

    I'm especially grateful for your posting your colour mixes - many thanks for that.

    Now I'm in, I'll be here until the end :)

    Best regards

    Hey Phil, thanks a bunch for the kind words, I appreciate it.
    Poste Militaire figures are in my opinion some of the finest figures ever produced, as good or better than most figures in todays congested market.

    My next SBS will be the Poste Militaire 90mm Cuirassier standing next to his horse.


    Cheers

    I agree Rocco, Ray Lamb is a master talent and the "engineering" of his pieces is still unbeaten IMHO. Happily a lot of his work is still available.

    I'll look out for the Cuirassier with interest - that's another classic.

    Best regards
