    Hello Planeteers,
    I took a break form my 40mmm minis and went over some details on the coat, added a little bit more contrast and painted his ruffle shirt cuffs , vest and pants, gaiters are almost done but need more contrast, maybe the lighting and camera setting does not show how it really the colors are .
    cheers

    Thank you Eduardo, this figure will be with an officer of "les Blancs" having an informal chat about the new issued "casques" , in which the officer in white uniform will be examining and show the Guard it's features , that is what i have in mind for a little vignette for now.
    Thanks for your comment!

    The figure is almost finished, just need to paint the walking stick.
    I already took one officer form the former diorama, the figure was 65% completed and started some modifications to resemble a more revolutionary look, I am adding some Magic sculp to make the turnbacks longer, I have a replacement head, legs and a helmet ( casque) to be done. lot of work ahead and stil need to work on the base for the vignette.
    cheers

    After some careful work on the turnbacks decided to strip the paint out of the upper body of the officer , I can't work over already painted surfaces, it drives me crazy, so I grabbed some cotton rounds and carefully removed the paint form the upper body of the figure.
    Already primed the legs and head, started to work on his hair and added some "fur" to the helmet.
    Last minute one of the turnbacks broke and re-did it and came up much nicer, call it a happy accident.
    I will post more pics tomorrow.
    Regards
