    Ladies and gentlemen thank you for all your support, encouragement and your patience.
    Finally after many interruptions, I managed to finish this truly vintage figure.
    It still needs extreme highlights, extreme shadows and a few touch ups here and there.

    Hello Roc

    You have done a very very nice job with this figure with horse. I am very interested in the Napoleonic period and see alot of figures and vignettes and diorama's of this period. I must say this will be a example for me.
    Again its very beautiful painted. I hope to see more from you here on planet figure. ;)
    What is your next project Roc.
    We keep in touch.

    Cheers Dick Evegaars

    Looks super, Roc. I enjoyed watching this come together for you.

    The metals are well done. Your yellows are effective (much nicer than mine ;) )

    Also, I like how the figures are placed. The horse and rider appear to be turning to look to the right. Gives a feeling of anticipation. Nicely thought out!

    Thanks Colin , you are absolutely right, they did make some nice figures years
    ago and you didn't have to mortgage your house to buy a 90mm mounted figure. :(

    I think the old Poste militaire figures are as good or better than many kits manufactured today.

    Cheers

    Hi Roc...you done such a great job on this classic...I love the way that you painted the horse...and just look at those feathers on the cuirassiers' plume..don't they just look like they can be caught by the slightest breeze...?

    Lovely painting Roc.

    Hello Roy, thank you for the kind words , I do appreciate them.
    This is indeed a Poste Militaire classic, extremely well sculpted by Mr. Lamb and flawlessly cast, even by today’s very high standards.
    Poste Militaire is a pioneer of figure manufactures and will surely be missed by many.

    Cheers

    I haven't really decided my next project, I'm thinking of doing a Roman.
