    New from MM
    Grenadier de la garde du royaume de Naples 1814

    Real novelty figurine of one of the most colorful Napoleonic army.
    For me, perhaps my favorite.
    Always the talent of Bruno.
    The quality of the casting is still there although for some time the alloy used for casting have strange colors.
    Make an opinion with the photos of the figure: IMG_0594.JPG IMG_0589.JPG IMG_0590.JPG IMG_0593.JPG IMG_0597.JPG IMG_0598.JPG IMG_0600.JPG IMG_0602.JPG IMG_0604.JPG IMG_0606.JPG IMG_0608.JPG IMG_0613.JPG

    Very nice and a bit of movement in the figure. One I will be adding to my MM stash for sure.

    Nice figure and I love MM - but does anyone else think the detail casting looks a little bit soft on this one? It could be the photos or my eyes of course.

    Another gem from MM, but we basically have become used to that! I too have a few castings from them with the "burnt" appearance of the metal. Other than being a little odd to look at, the color of the metal has no bearing on the quality of the casting, or the piece itself.

    Do not worry about the quality of the details, the photo enlarged the figure more than ten times, and besides I'm not a professional photographer.
    MM quality is still there ... And so much the better.
