Beautiful Peter!!

As for the fur. It was white for officers and black for troopers. (Sorry to be a 'button counter'.)

Thanks Andy

I'm going to leave him as he is if you don't mind - I just couldn't get the white right, so it was either black or the bin!

Peter.

I'd rather he stayed black after all that skilful work!

Hi Andy

Looks like it's not quite that straightforward. I think the stripes indicate a brigadier, in which case the fur was black. Not all officers wore white apparently - some ranks wore grey and some buff - I think it was only senior officers who wore white. As usual though there is a mass of conflicting info out there, so......

Peter.

Another loverly looking figure - shame about the thin legs but that does not detract from the great paint job.

Very neatly done - you have your own particular style with these figures.

Peter and Mike - thank you. It will be hard to go back to 120mm - seems so small in comparison. Might try a bust next instead.

Some final photos in better light:

This was an immensely enjoyable build, and at nine days, one of my longest. Despite the problems with the sculpt - those legs(!), and the indifferent folds to the drapery, this has made up into quite a monumental figure. Here's a reminder of his size compared to a 120mm figure:

Now to see if I can find him some cabinet space......

Peter.

Hi Peter

Despite its shortcomings the result is superb. I didn't realise just how big it was.

NIce one Peter. Nothing is more attractive than a superbly painted Napoleonic.
