    Hi folks !!!
    Now I start a new project on this plate of a French zouave of the war franco Prussian. I have done the ground with plaster and feroca. The figure is an original modelled by Antonio Messeguer, modeling is certainly extraordinary.
    I hope like you!

    Love the figure, love the setting, love the historic period, really love Zouaves, the whole project is a winner. Is there any chance this would be offered commercially as I would also love to get my hands on a copy of this figure.

    Hi guys,
    This period and the Zouaves are also my favorite era, but the figure won't be commercial unfortunately.

    Thanks for comments !!
    Cheers.

    Great figure and composition, and very interesting theme, but on the picture it is not a zouave, it's a tirailleur algerien.

    Hi ! Thanks everybody for your feedback!!
    Dmitri, It is indeed an tirailleur argeline, This units, "les turcos" belonged to the zouaves of the ligne et de la Garde who had three regiments, differentiated by the colour of the Turban red (Argel) or white (Oran).

    Regards!!

    Hi guys, after a small problem of vision with my left eye that has made me stop two weeks, right now I starting to paint again the figure, this is the result.
    I hope that you should like

    cheers !!

    Lovely colours and work! .. I am slightly surprised that the face has been left until later ?? I cant imagine how you would paint this, without having to handle the figure ! you must have a steady hand! .. Much more than I could manage! .. Great work though !

    Regards
