    Nice work Kev. I just HAVE to get this bust. It's not listed on the A-M page on Historex. I guess A-M will supply direct.

    I've got their Colonel Du Pin 75mm figure (arrived today) and it is excellent. He's got gongs but only a few. I will SBS it.

    As for Dupin ...here's my WIP on a bust version you might find interesting https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/colonel-charles-dupin.76757/

    Look forward to the SBS on the 75mm

    Thanks Kev - some useful info in your Du Pin SBS, and it came out extremely well. Just ordered mine direct from Gilles.

    I am about to post Bigeard in "Completed" - I notice Akaryu spoke of a Bigeard with full gongs on his wish list back then. Maybe Offo read the post:D

    Hi Phil

    The Dupin was a couple of years ago , certainly paint differently now ....able to do lots on it to correct but yours is 75 and a lovely figure

    Off to catch up on things ....Offo is a good sculptor for sure

    Happy benchtime

    I like what you've done with his collar badges & the large awards on the LHS of his chest, Kev - very intricate!

    Hi Kev

    75mm Dupin figure's on the bench. Rollet is in the post from Atelier. I'll post some pics of Dupin in a day or so.

    Painted 3 awards on the left side of Rolett ...he's coming together nicely ...out of interest what's your mix likely to be on his uniform colour ?

    Hi Kev

    Looking at the colour photos, I think the closest to the right colour is the area on the left chest above the medals. I reckon I'd look to achieve that using English Uniform Khaki, lightened with Off White and a tiny touch of Brown Pink, all Vallejo. Don't take my word for it though. I will check it later when I'm back at the bench and will report back.
