    This took longer than I thought, as I am trying to pass kidney stone's, bloody painful.
    All in acrylics and the flesh tone in oils.
    The only additions is a new breech lever in the load position and a small loop for the bandolier under the arm.
    Thanks for looking and now time drink some more water.

    Nice little figure, and very well painted, just a thought...you could have added the kidney stones to the base and passed them off as small rock's!

    All the best,

    Cheers Chailey,
    don't worry, they will be assimilated into one of my next figures base. Trouble is waiting for them.

    Very nice work, Bob! I just received this figure along with the Camel Corps Officer and they are both fantastic.

    Thank you very much Scott.
    I don't think I have had a duff figure from troop54 yet, each one has had very good detail and the sculpt has been very good.
    I am now working on the Officer Scots Fusilier Guards 1854 with the regimental colour on his shoulder. I will also have to get the others just released.

    You are most welcome, Bob. I really like Troop54's offerings, and I also have the Scots Fusilier Guards figure your working on. I'm eagerly anticipating the companion figure for the Maiwand figure Stuart hinted about. I love Victorian figures!

    Another lovely bit of brushwork Bob, like your fleshtones & facial shading & the cord breeches look spot-on.
    Hope your kidney stones desert you soon.....
