    Hi Guys

    This is whats on my bench , a nice painting exercise , sculpted by Steve Leadley aka Valiant , been painted before by Steve and also Roger ( billy turnip ).

    Here's a link to Rogers WIP http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/1st-greek-light-infantry-1810-12.100476/

    and completed version ....http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/1st-regiment-greek-light-infantry.101377/

    Certainly very colourful and a subject not seen before so it makes a nice change ...shame its not a commercial piece as well , Steve only cast up a couple .

    its progressed a lot since this picture of basecoats only ...uniform and lacework all done ...today its the flesh ...love the look of this one ..very greek

    Looking good Nap. I'm sure you are going to enjoy painting all that braiding. What colours are you going to use?
