    I've almost finished this lovely piece from Alexandros miniatures.
    Some little touch ups, and the coat needs more work.

    Nice Carl, I think this is the best bust of Nap that has been produced to date and you have made a great job of it.............Keih

    I agree. Great work. I would add that the overcoat has a texture that I like. Only a comment about the uniform. I always paint this chasseur uniform in a bit darker green ( not so yellowish) and with a green piping around the collar. ( I see it often without it)

    very well painted - but I agree with Eduardo: The green is a bit too bright

    To change this would make a very good figure to an excellent figure, I think.

    Cheers

    Thanks for having a look. I thought the tunic was a bit green.
    I've toned it down a lot now.
    Thanks for the great reference Eduardo.
    Thanks again,

    He looks a wee stunner Carl.
    The skintone blending looks spot on. maybe a bit more 5 oclock shadow to make a difference in tone.
    I love the texture of the coat and the blending of the green.
    really nice work.

    I just have one point, and agree with Eduardo, the green maybe not be the correct one.

    If he'd had a tube of that for his clements history might have turned out differently.
