    Hello folks,
    I haven't work on 54mm figures for a while and yesterday going trough my stuff i came across this Labayen drummer i've got from a collector in Argentina a couple years back.
    I bought a about 12 figures from different sizes and manufactures, got lucky to have few Labayen figures, unfortunately few are missing the bases and drummers are missing the some pieces.
    I will paint this figure as a Drummer from Penthièvre Regiment, their coats were red, with the regiments lace in yellow gold edged in blue.
    The drums were Brass and hoops were of the coat color.
    Cheers! 20220110_145710.jpg 20220110_133952.jpg

    Hi Daniel

    Great to see you painting the larger scales , how old is the figure ?

    Look forward to seeing this progress around the bench ...especially seeing the lace and drum

    Is that a casting line running around the drum centre ?

    Following with interest

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks my friend,
    I did not see casting line tl you have point it out :(
    The drum case and base are not part of the original figure, i had to scramble to get a drum, adapt a base and still find the drum sticks.

    Well done Daniel. I like to see you painting in 54 mm. I too love the colorful uniforms of the ancien regime.

    Sorry to say it ...nice additions didn't realise they weren't the original ......dare I suggest check the arms for casting lines .....just think of it as fun it's a classic figure and well worth it .......the painting will be something colourful

    Happy benchtime
