    Hi all,

    This is Verlinden's 200mm bust of a Westphalian Guard Hussar. As always, in oils over acrylics. First pics with the new camera - my daughter wanted the Minolta for her college course, so I now have a Pentax digital SLR - great improvement.

    Thank you for the compliments Gentlemen. When artists of your calibre say that my painting is good, then I feel that it must be improving!

    Love those older VL busts. I have done several and they are of high quality and a real easy to paint. Nice to see someone else painting them too! :lol:

    Thanks for the complimentary remarks guys.
    Ths one went so well from the start - the next one (Pegaso 90mm templar) is about to have the white stripped for the third time so I hope it ends up as good as this!

    Hi Roswitha

    The gold lace is an acrylic paint by Wargames Foundry - these come in packs - the gold has 'bronze' 'gold' and 'shiny' which gives the shadow, main & highlight colours. The brassy look on the metal parts is a 'brass' enamel by Plasticote which I found in a local cheapie shop.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Hello Dave,

    Best wishes,
    Roswitha
