    Started with this beautiful figure from Alexandros. 75 mm white metal.
    Although Nappi is too tall for the scale, but who cares. It's a nice sculpt.

    I like the blue and white... Do you work in acrylics? If so, what is your formula for the whites? If you don't mind sharing :)

    Napoleon is described as having brown hair so, unless it's the photo, the hair colour should be changed, especially as in Egypt it would have been lightened by the sun.

    Lovely figure.

    Hi Colin, It's painted in oils. Based on acrylic primer.
    Oils are burnt umber and titanium white.
    Still not finished with the Whites, to be honest.

    Hi Jeff, On the most paintings he has more or less black hair. As he was a Corsican, a very dark shine of hair could be possible.
    Maybe I will ad some more brownish tones to it.

    Thanks for the remarks. (y)
