    Hello all again fellow PF members. Here I present you my latest work. It's from Romeo Models, at 54mm. Painted fully in oils over enamels and printer inks for the metallic parts. Here I would like to thank first of all my good friend Costas, as this figure was a gift from him. Secondly I would like to thank another good friend Artur Miniszewski. He gave me a lot of hints on how to paint whites, so that's my first try with his method. I believe there is plenty of room for improvements.
    Anyway, I hope you like it, and I wait for your comments and critics.

    Excellent work with the whites Xenofon. Like the balistrade and base too.

    Xenofon,
    I think you did a nice job over all on this figure! I think it's good clean painting. I would like to have seen more use of the over-head lighting for the shading, the larger flat surfaces look a bit static (particularly the reds on his tails and the front chest), but nicely done over all! The whites look pretty good. Keep it up!

    Thanks a lot Guy and Jay. I will agree with you Jay. It seems that I gave too much attention on the whites leaving the reds. But honestly the photography lights kills some of the shadowing and lights overall.
    Thanks again my friends.

    Kalimera Xenofon,
    Nice painting, MAB will be glad of your performance. I think that Neapolitain Murat's Army had the most colourful and elegant uniforms of that period and they will be more successful by the collectors.
    Were my painting instructions easy to follow?
    Good bye, sailor

    Very good work Xenofon.
    The white's are good. I think that the picture is not so good as the figure in real life.
    Maybe, some day i see it in life.

    Very cool.
    White is about the only colour that scares me there i don't paint unless I have too.
    Please share how you did this

    Cheers

    Thanks a lot for your good comments Marc and Chris. You are right about the photography Marc... it's too light indeed.
    Chris the technique is rather simple, but it needs a lot of practice. My good friend Artur tough me as well. You first basecoat the white parts with a light grey color... preferably humbrol 28 and then with straight titanium white for highlights and various tones of grey (black and white) for the shadows. You blend well and you pray for a good result hehehehehhehe.
