    Finished my last project. Joachim Murat, Grand Duke of Berg, 1806. A 75mm figure from Atelier Maket. A challenging uniform to paint and a challenging figure to assemble. Alternative sessions of painting and assembling have been used to allow all the areas to be addressed.
    Hope you'll like it!
    Cheers,
    Zeno :)

    Zeno, my old fr, that is beautiful painting. Bold where it needs to be and subtle in other areas. Well done.

    Excellent painting Zeno. What colors did you use on the pelisse; excellent deep red tones.

    Thanks a lot! Much appreciated!
    Oh, well, I like to experiment on the palette and I was aiming for a deep red wine color. So, what I did is to mix Scale 75 Deep Red, Vallejo Royal Purple and Andrea Black. I got a dark purple red and that was the base coat. Darken with more black and highlighted with red and orange plus yellow. I didn't liked the color - to red-ish. So, I went back to the base color and this time I did it in purple. More black for shadows and purple plus Vallejo old rose for highlights. When I liked the contrast, I applied a filter/wash with Scale 75 Deep Red which changed the color in this nice burgundy red. I like to play in this way. All kind of nice surprises are coming out.
    Hope it helps! :)

    Another top job, Zeno. This is no easy figure to paint well but you have certainly managed it. Excellent.

    I think it’s outstanding.
    Murat is a man who I would gladly follow to hell ( I was a soldier)
    They had such charisma, those men like him.
