    Hi to all. Today I finished one the first of the three figures from First Legion that I bought last month.
    I painted it using acrylics. The figure is very well prepared for a single and effective assembly, even the the long nail of the back leg of the horse, has a special groove to fix it using glue, epoxy or soldering, the last one is the way I used.
    I think the quality of the figure is very high, all the details are very fine and well engraved, buttons, oak leaves etc. About the anatomy and proportions, both, horse and horseman are suberbly solved.
    All comments welcome.

    Hi Eduardo, you have done a terrific job on this and the casting detail looks excellent-I cancelled my order for these as there was some controversy on PF regarding the quality-I might have to rethink.

    Well done again........Keith

    Thank you very much Andrey, Daniel, Chris, Mat, Pedro and Keith for your kind comments. Thanks to all for take the time to look.
    Keith these photos are for you and for anyone else who is interested in this kit. I think the way they have solved the fixation of the legs of the horse is very clever and secure.

    Thanks Eduardo. I will try a couple of these, they seem to have given some thought, as you say, to preventing the Horse from sagging over time.

    Thanks again for posting.........Keith
