    Hi, here's my latest figure. Metal Modeles' new ADC figure painted as Marcellin de Marbot as ADC to Marshal Lannes in Spain, 1808.

    I got the idea from an article in Military Modelling magazine by Geoff Barnes about Marbot's memoirs.

    I used acrylics. The door is by Nemrod and the plants are photo-etched from Eduard.

    Hope you like it! m2.jpg

    Super painting there. Any mis-steps with the brush with these figures and you're finished - it's all gotta be 100% spot on, which it clearly is. A top job, mate. (y)
