Something totally different tonight and something I swore I would never do again (no not trying to milk a cat or try to dance in public sober). As a mod on Benno's forum I have been involved in sorting out peoples arguments over how many buttons on a chuff to the wrong coloured underpants, mainly due to Napoleonic uniforms. So it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I started this figure.
I have hundreds of these ESCI nappy figures from my childhood when I bought several battle sets and thought that I might has well give them a try. I have tried once before to paint a Nappie figure and it was crap!
To be fair this only took me an hour and a half to paint this figure which might explain the standard of this job.
I ALSO PAINTED IT STRAIGHT FROM THE ART WORK ON THE BOX!!!!!!!!!DON'T BLAME ME!
|Always a dramatic figure and always reminded me of the TV series "Sharpe" and yes I know the book came first!|
|I started by using the wrong colour blue but soon changed it to a more realistic colour.|
|I still think I might have cocked this up, its the best I could come up with.|
|the base is from GW and cover with Vallejo dark mud effect with a mix of MiG pigments.|
|A lot of fiddly braids and hat plates and of course my favourite colour white!|
