    I painted the figure in Vallejo acrylic paints.The gold lace was painted using a signwritng gold paste mixed with Vallejo matt medium.The silver parts were painted with Citadel boltgun and mithril silver.Hope you like the end result.:)
    Regards,John

    You've done a great job on this! I particularly like the face. I've painted this too, it's a really nice figure. (I'm currently painting Maurice's 75mm 17th Lancer.)

    A beautifully painted and presented figure. It would look even better in 120/150mm.

    Lovely job on this John. I still have mine kindly given to me by a fellow member here, but haven't had the time to paint it. I'll use yours as an inspiration.

    John, you've done an excellent job of this wonderful figure.
    I've done one of these and I can honestly say, I'd use yours as reference if I ever did another.
    A smashing job.

    Super job on this figure and not an easy paint with all that blue to do. Mine is waiting in the wings for the Crimea bug to bite again. :) Love the face on yours too.

    Great work John, I like the face and the shako, nice colors. Only one thing, and it´s my taste, I think the gold of the embroideries is too metalic, maybe you can get a better or real result simulating the golden using yellow, brown, ocher and white etc.
    As I said is a question of taste, I think you have achieve the effect nicely.
