    Here is my latest one for this spring, a dashing Captain in the Guides de Bonaparte, a very good 75mm metal figure from Pegaso and sculpted by Richard Galiceck, painted in oils as usual. Feel free to comment and criticize.

    Thanks for looking! Now I am of to weeks of whale watching in the Strait of Gibraltar. May I kindly ask anyone brexiting the EU to leave the Rock in its place, please? We sometimes use it as a landmark while floating there, thanks.

    Lovely piece of work, Pierre....I like Richard Galicek's sculpts of Napoleonics (as in the Alexandros Garde Imperiale figures)...they seem to have that essential "je ne se quois" about them.

    Enjoy your trip,.... I think we'll leave Gib where it is, just to annoy the Spanish :LOL: Bon voyage !

    Pierre, Nice job on the Guides!(y) I'm a big fan of Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign. Love the way you pulled off the reds and greens. The groundwork really adds to the figure as well! Thanks for sharing your work! I appreciate it greatly!!!

    Thanks for leaving the Djebel al Tarik in its proper place, I really appreciate that. It nicely balances the Djebel Musa on the other side of the Strait and where would you put it anyway?:LOL: :LOL::LOL:

    And on a more serious note: thank you for your nice comments, gentlemen!

    Very nice Pierre. This is a great figure from Pegaso. Lovely work on the colours, particularly the green. Is it a mix or a straight colour from the tube? I sometimes find when using a mix for green it can dry with a sheen.

    Hello Neal,

    The base is Cinnabar Green Deep W&N, darkened with a touch of Indigo also W&N, highlights in the fresh with Naples Yellow Light in the basic mix. Once dry, shadows were added with a very diluted wash of Ivory Black W&N and Sepia from Old Holland.
    Thanks for looking,
