    I agree on the groundwork - basic is good sometimes!

    Hello Roc,
    Nice painting and right colours. Only a detail, for the precision. The snap hook of the carbine belt did not lock at the trigger, but at a little bar situated on the side of the carbine, that I don't see. And the little white belt usually did not catch the butt, but just a little forward, near the trigger, to balance better the carbine and keep it near the body of the man.
    Ciao Rocco, buon lavoro ;)

    Keep up the good work.

    Marc my dear friend, thanks for all your encouragement and kind words, they really help.

    The Chasseur being the third Napoleonicfigure that I ever painted did present some difficulties, but in the end patience and perseverence helped me finish the figuure.

    Cheers
    Roc. :)

    Maurizio, you are correct, this is a very old 90mm Poste Militaire figure, sculkpted by Ray Lamb's talented hands many years ago.

    It's amazing how those old kits continue to maintain their charm even by today's high standards.

    Ciao
    Roc :)
