    Hello, here are a couple of pics of my latest figure.

    I was inspired by a scratchbuilt figure of a similar subject by Jerry Hutter - I really liked the faded blueish-violet tone of the jacket, so I tried to create a similar colour. I used Osprey's Napoleon's Line Infantry for reference, but it's hard to know exactly what colours the Demi Brigade regiments wore in Egypt..

    It's painted in acrylics. The section of wall was made with A+B putty and plasticard. Hope you like it.

    You have done a lovely job on this , Edward, great tones. I would imagine the various colours would have faded out quite severely under the Egyptian sun, so I don't think anyone can query your palette ! ;)(y)

    That's lovely painting Edward.
    Great setting too and is clearly in Egypt. Napoleon's army in Egypt wore some very colourful and interesting uniforms.

    Just a detail, for French people the egypt campaign is BONAPARTE's period, not Napoleon, this period began december 1804 ;)

    Very crisp piece of painting Edward - I like the idea of the faded blue which adds a different look to the familiar 'French' blue

    Thanks Paul. The coat is a blueish-violet. It actually looks a bit more violet in the flesh.
