    Howdy all,
    Here is Segom's 30mm flat of Napoleon crossing the Alps. My next step will be to paint up the background on a plastic card for final display. I used Andrea and Vallejo acrylics on this representation of "L'Empereur".

    I had intended to paint the horse with oils all along, but somehow without giving it much thought I just continued to go at it with the acrylics. I used Andrea and Vallejo's. Thanks for looking him over :)!

    Thanks Gary! You might say I got some practice on this guy. I had done one of these several years ago but, I let a collector talk me out of it. I just had to do another :)!

    Hi Joe, if your'e going to keep on with flats:), good web sites to look for are "The British Flat Figure Society" and "The International Flat Figure Society" websites. These should give you plenty of ideas.
    Best wishes, Gary.
