Review Metal Modeles Chasseur Capitaine unboxed

    Here's my latest recruit, a captain of Guard Chasseurs 1857. It's heavy, man. I've been buying mainly resin figures recently and they're as light as a feather. So the weight of this one came as a surprise and I nearly dropped it on the floor. The baggy pants and full-skirted jackets of the mid 19th century make for a lot of metal. Heavy metal.

    It's an unmistakable Metal Modeles product, you know exactly what you're getting. Fine detail, excellent modelling and not too many parts.


    Rough assembly with white tac. Here's the cigar man looking very 2nd Empire. It is going to be a pleasure to get some paint on this. Probably some eyestrain doing the medals.


    This figure has the familiar Metal Modeles man-about-town metropolitan pavement base. I usually paint it a sort of grey and rub a few pigments on. But, being a great artiste, I feel that I should observe from nature and I've taken to going about the place looking at the ground observing and taking pictures. Trees, grass, rough ground. I'm there with my iPhone. This is a picture of the paving at the back of a pub. A pub which I visited purely to take pictures and observe.

    I bought a few drinks as well. Just as a matter of courtesy.

    Does anyone else have a problem trying to get in touch with Atelier Maket? I would like to order a specific head from one of their Metal Modeles kits. I have sent Guy several emails with no response.
