Miniart 1/16 French Dragoon

    Morning Peter

    Great work on the Dragoon and they do sit well together.

    Nice palette too, pink isn't a regular military colour, but looks good.

    I guess the Napoleonic armies didn't have an LBGT non-binary+ agenda!

    Finish today with the musket/rifle?

    Have a good day in the stormy weather

    William - Many thanks.

    Steve - Our chap may be very happy to wear pink, who knows? Just the weaponry to do, so should be finished today.

    The last session involved painting the hands and weapons. I found it impossible to lick the kit sword into shape, so I made up a new one from the spares box. A bit rough at the edges, but fun to do.

    Great job as always, Peter - you've really made a silk purse out of a sow's ear on this one.

    Great finish Peter

    Well done, even with the hiccups with the build and parts.

    Whats next on the bench?

    We had a lovely garden party at the cat rescue, another small step in getting out and about.

    Have a good day with the next victim

    Very many thanks chaps. Glad you like how he's turned out.

    Steve - Very good to hear that you and Anna are getting back into the swing of things, and for such a worthy cause! Next up, a single figure by Verlinden. Not too much partying now, you've got 'til the next lockdown to catch up.

    Very nicely done Peter.
    It just shows what you can get out of the cheaper plastic models.

    Cheers,
