    Hello Planeteers,
    I have been waiting quite sometime to get this figure, i am switching jobs and little time to work on my beloved miniatures but decided to take few hours to work on this likely Lad.
    I have seen reviews on this figure from.Carrano, i believe there are few areas that have been critisized, Especially the head and face expression , i particularily did not like the original head and replaced it with a spare head of the no longer and dissapear JMD miniatures thst i jad on another figure that did not make it to the glorious stand of figures lol.
    So, here we are, with a much nicer face and typical french snobby officer air.
    This lad will with a Scottish noble officer in French Service of the Regiment Royal Ecossais around 1740/1750.
    Cheers 20180525_232745.jpg images-1.jpg

    The face seems good to me, I think only to touch up some detail to better highlight the expression of the face(y)

    I have added the side curls , turndown collar and lace on the coat ( left side for now).
    I've got rid of the lace from the belt down on the vest as per the regiment regulation . 20180526_165029.jpg 20180526_165038.jpg

    I've primed the figure as usual with Self Etching car primer, i am surprise on how good it adheres to this type of surface.
    I layed the base color for the hat using a mix of scale 75 grafitte grey and vallejo German grey... 20180527_015122.jpg 20180527_015134.jpg 20180527_021340.jpg

    That figure looks so much better with the head transplant.
    Nice progress with the brush work.

    Great to have you posting your work as always good to see , like the replacement head and clean artwork on the flesh

    As always your attention to the uniform details are interesting and shows your knowledge of the period

    The collar and cuffs are scale 75 Blood red, and the vest and troussers are vallejo game Gory red . 20180527_173546.jpg

    Wow Daniel, those subdued base colour tones, as Kev said, look realistic for a battle-weary Ensign.
    He will be a real beauty if you can pull them onto the finished figure.
    Keep up the superb work here Mate.
