    It's been awhile since I've painted one of these but felt the urge again.
    This is a 54mm musician of the Prinz von Preussen Cuirassiers based on an illustration by Adolf Menzel. The illustration and other info can be found here....

    This is where I am at the moment, the breeches are finished (I think ) and the face is almost done just need to play with the definition of the eyes, the rest is still wip. Painted with oils over acrylic.

    Thanks very much.
    Not too eagerly I hope on the bench I've got 1 x 1/48 aircraft, 2 x 1/72 aircraft and a full round figure.
    I suppose I could triage them and deal with each in turn.

    Thanks very much Brad.
    I'm at home on leave at the moment until about 9th July. There's nothing like a SYW Prussian to get the flat figure juices flowing again.

    I'm presently juggling my time between this and some aircraft kits but there's room on the bench for both.

    I like the shading on his Kollet, your shades of yellow are nicely muted. Looking again at his breeches, though, the shadows seem to me a hair dark. Could be my eye.

    Prost!

    Crikey I thought we had lost you to the dark side forever.:giggle:

    Hi Roger,
    Nice brush work mate, you've not lost your touch.
    cheers

    Thanks Brad, yes, you're right the shading on the breeches is dark and intentionally so. Once the rest is shaded in a similar fashion it should make sense..... ir maybe not. :LOL:



    :ROFLMAO: Cheers Ritchie. You should know I'm likely to crop up unexpectedly like a bad rash.

    Believe me Bob you're better off not knowing but I know one thing if you need to know anything the internet is jammed full of experts on every mark and model ever produced.... and some that never left the drawing board and weren't.
