    Now the weather has changed down south to cooler weather a a bit of rain, I can now get some paint on this latest figure.
    Purchase from e-bay, thanks to Mitches Military Miniatures.
    Still a lot to do but the tunic and trousers are done as is the canvas bag. all painted in acrylics except the face, which is in oils.

    Nice one Bob, like the scarlet shade you've chosen for his tunic & nice weathering on his trousers & boots.

    Getting a bit more painting today but still a way to go.
    Gold lace on the colours to repaint and highlight, staff to paint, sword and hilt to finish, so on and so on.
    I decided to use lead wire to represent to tassels as they have a bit more animation.
    So to the photos,

    A simple touch, but the wire creates more movement Bob
    It's looking well mate.
