    Thanks for the comments. Based his hair and painted his lips, brows and added more colour to his face tones.

    Added some purple, red and sepia (for facial hair areas). Washed his hair with Dark Roman Earth to darken it. Undercoated his cravat. Started work on his hand.

    His eyes still need more work. The irises are too dull.

    Not my mix Bob. It was Phil's which he generously provided on HMF, an ancestor forum to this one. Good luck with it :)

    Here's the uniform arrangement that I am following. This is the reenactor Ney hurt at this year's Waterloo event. Wearing a marshal's undress habit coat (Lannes wears the dress coat with frontal oak leaves), with off white under vest, black cravat and white shirt.

    Coming along beautifully on another monster sized bust. Looks like MMSI is going to have to fortify the tables.....:LOL:

    Hi Colin,
    This 1/6 scale is suiting your work really well.
    As I have said before your ability to create layer upon layer of high level detail is amazing.
    Great work,

    In case you haven't seen it already, from FB here is the shot of faux Ney getting his wounds. Apparently there is a law suit pending as reenactors were not allowed to ride their own mounts and had to draw horses from a local supplier....some of which were apparently a wee bit green. Several serious injuries were sustained.

    My smart ass comment was that the real Ney went through five horses at Waterloo but this horse may have gone through five Neys :)

    Stunning is on oft used and, in this case, hopelessly inadequate adjective to describe this work.

    Cheers

    Was the horse ok? For these events special training is required for horse and rider but it seems unfair that animals suffer.

    Yes we own horses in case you ask.

    I have several friends who are riders and re enactors, It takes years of training to get the hose accustomed the noise levels and all the scary stuff the humans put them selves through.

    By the way even more superb painting Colin.

    Just catching up with this post! Marvellous work, Colin -- Lannes tends to get forgotten, yet he was one of 'N''s dearest friends.
    The 'faux' Ney at Waterloo photo is a pretty good indication of how he must have looked when the real one took his tumbles -- good action picture there, but such an unfortunate aftermath. Hope he's recovering OK. Interestingly, the 'real' Ney was able to remount with just a few bruises.

    Cheers, Alan

    Great point. We forget how much damage some of these senior officers could sustain while remaining on the field. Oudinot was wounded 34 times...good thing Napoleon didn't issue purple hearts. We also forget the suffering of the horses.

    Starting the bicorne. Basic shape painted sepia & black - no shading or highlighting yet; NMM lace started with sepia and raw sienna and first lights with a dab of cad yellow and ivory white mixed into the base; feathers started with a wash of blue black over the undercoat and first paint with titanium white with some blue black mixed in to get a light grey - still needs highlights of pure white.
