    Hello,

    I show you my next finsihed bust. It is the Edouard de Colbert bust, sculpted by Carl Reid en produced by Bonapartes http://www.bonapartesmilitarymodels.co.uk/general-edouard-de-colbert-bust-237-p.asp
    Attached to the Imperial Guard in 1811, he re-formed and commanded the 2e régiment de chevau-légers lanciers de la Garde impériale (better known as the Red Lancers). He also led the brigade for the whole of the Russian camaign. He and the Lancers then bravely covered the Grande Armée's retreat.

    I hope you like it.
    Ben

    The red is a mix of Humbrol Enamals basic 60(red)+153(dark red), shadow is 60(red)+30 (dark green), highlight is 60(red)+61(flesh)
    I hope it helps for you.
