    Here is my next project 1/6 scale NSW Lancer from Naked Army who produced this beauty several months ago . A cold cast bronze that i have been asked to paint to be put on display in Melbourne.
    I have undercoated the figure and will be getting the brushes ready to begin in the next day or so.
    I hope to complete this project in 4 - 5 weeks
    Cheers

    Thanks Chris
    Interesting colours on this one and a lot of detail to bring out , I have some great reference material for this one as well , a mate of mine was cadre staff at the unit many years ago and has leant me some great uniform photos from the museum at Parramatta , hope i can do it justice
    Cheers

    I am sure you will do a fabulous job with it. The khaki for the NSW Lancers is a tricky mix, but I have no doubt you will nail it.

    Nifty!! I see they used the bamboo lance like the Indian and British lancers. Will follow.

    All the best,

    A lovely figure. I've been thinking of doing one of these in 150mm for Victory Miniatures.

    Great stuff Al. The texture paste really works in 1/6th scale. very subtle but definitely necessary.

    That is looking really good like the flesh work looking forward to the uniform colour , that blaze of red is really impressive looking

    Had a close look at the stable belt very nice indeed .

    Happy painting
