    Hi Nap, thanks very much for your comments on this figure and for the guidance you provided me on uniform colours and unit designation. It's great to have access to people with such a passion for Napoleonic history. Yes, this figure will definitely take pride of place in my collection.

    Hi David, still a few things to do before I call this figure finished. I appreciate you taking the time to look and comment mate.

    Hi guys,

    Final pics below. I've been working on adding the finishing touches, which include more Creme of tartar snow effects on the uniform and a final wash of oils.

    Really enjoyed this figure and pleased with the way it turned out.

    I hope you like it. Thanks to everyone for your comments on this thread.

    Tony, this figure is an absolute beauty mate.
    I love the cold tones you've used, particularly in his face, and the powdery snow on his uniform is outstanding.
    Over the past few years you've painted a lot of figures which I've loved, but this has to be my favourite. Well done mate!

    Great cold weather piece Tony...brings to mind the retreat scene from Ridley Scott's film"The Duellists." You need to do more Nappies.

    I don't mean to speak for Tony, but I reckon if he's anything like me he's seen enough nappies for one bloke for one lifetime.

    Excellent painting.
    He has it cold, is tired, and is leaving Moskow to go home.
    Splendid work.
