    Hello again,
    after a short brake I retutn to scratch. This time it's not a Hellenic theme but a colonial and specifically from the "Taiping rebellion" which took place in China in 1851-1866.
    The figure represents an English private from the "Volunteer Corps" at 1860 in Shanghai.
    I am another one fun of that period, because I like a lot all these beautiful uniforms and also because I "grown up" with Bill's "Military Modelling Masterclass" unter my pillow.:D

    I hope you like it,

    PS, the painter of this miniature will be my very good friend "Jimias".

    My best regards to all of you, Christos.

    Hi Chris,
    τελικά πολύ καλη φατσουλά της μινιατουρας ταιριάζει απόλυτα το Αγγλικό θεμα που έχεις φτιάξει καθώς και το σκηνικο είναι μέσα στην ατμόσφαιρα που απεικονίζεις.+
    finally very good face(fatsoyla] miniatouras it suits absolutely the English subject that you have made as well as the setting is in the atmosphere that you portray!!!
