    Hi Terry,

    I have a reasonably extensive database where Phil Kessling appears 27 times.
    The Napoleonic dragoon (Metal Modeles) does not appear.
    However, his article on 'Painting a Face' does feature that dragoon.
    Perhaps that was what you were recollecting:-

    These articles by Phil are how I learned to paint. Uncomplicated colour mixes, clearly explained with excellent photography. He did an amazing article on painting a bust for the Historical Miniatures 1998 World Expo (Toronto) special issue.

    Unless you wanted to get the original hardcopy, you could just download the image from Andrew's post.

    Prost!

    The bust article was on the old Timeline site. It was also published in either Historical Miniature or Military Modelling. I no longer have a copy of it.

    Hope you are well, my friend. You are correct, the article was in Historical Miniatures #14.

    Paul,
    I am doing good. Hope you and the family are as well. Thanks for the info on the article. My books and magazines are as disorganized as my grey army!
