    Hi Roger

    it looks very, very good and I like especially the picture in your garden. The horse colours are great and the feathers and the saddle-cloth too.

    Thank you Ulrich, as you can see the sun is shining here today, at last.
    I'm glad you like the feathers, this was a first for me. There aren't many WW1 figs wearing feathers. I'm also quite pleased with the way they turned out.
    Maybe I'll do another figure with feathers:D. Any suggestions? I can't think of any:p

    Nice work on a difficult figure !!!
    If you want many feathers, get EMI's Indian chief ot some mounted Indian from Seil Models They all carry long tails with endless feathers !!!

    Thank you Costas.
    I was thinking of perhaps one or two on a headress that might be just a little ambitous :eek: :D

    Nice going. I especially like the sudued tones of the leopard pelt. Most others, although well executed always look a bit on the orange side for me. What was your mix for the different tones? I have the Diorama Studios bust waiting on the shelf until I decide how to tackle the pelt.
    Cheers

    Well done, Roger! Nicely muted and understated - you really have a style all your own on every figure you do! Also - what is this about you not being able to paint a hoss? I'm going to use a technical word about that issue - hooey.

    All the best,
    Dan

    Thank you Christos.
    Thank you too Paul. "What was your mix for the different tones", now your asking, it's almost two months since since I did the pelt. however I can tell you I paint with acrylics and mine was pretty bright initially but it was given several washes of Andrea Ochre & Japanese khaki to tone the whole thing down and also to tone down the black of the spots. Sorry I can't be of any more help than that. My painting style is very haphazard and I don't pay a lot of attention to what colour goes on where and when.

    Nicely painted Roger! I love the horse blanket and the leopard skin. One of these days I'm gonna have to paint a Polish Hussar. I'm sure I could give it to one of the in-laws for Christmas or something.

    On a side note, I loved Yorkshire. We stayed in the neatest b&b/family farm while there. My family went on an extended vacation back in '91 and drove (!) from London to Edinburgh. Had a great time and missed two weeks of school to boot. :D

    Thank you Wendy. That horse blanket caused no end of problems, the gold lace was a nightmare. The leopardskin was suprisingly easy and that was the part I thought would cause the most problems.
    There's no shortage of Polish Hussars to choose from, give it a go. This one was brought back from Warsaw by one of my Polish workmates.
    Do you remember where you stayed in Yorkshire?

    Excellent piece of work, roger. Real nice.
    The picture taken outdoors of it shows your work up much better, and jus' how much effort you've really put into this. You should do that more often, I always take photos of my work outside, too.

    Thanks very much Paul. Here's a couple more of the outdoor photo's. I've just noticed the red line on the horses neck and have just moved the reigns a bit to cover it.
