It depicts two French Grenadiers or the Old Guard on their long walk back from Russia during the 1812 campaign .
All cast in Verlindens usual cream resin ,nicely cast too .
To start everything is cleaned and given a good primer coat ....
I then decided to start with the fallen Grenadier ,so I can do the groundwork while painting the other figure . I start with the face before working my way down the figure . All painting is down with an Acrylic basecoat followed by oil paints.
Then moving on to the greatcoat (Redingote) Also the belts and Epaulettes pick out ...
And moving on to the equipment .....
Still got some tidying up and finishing to do on that lot ,but thats where I am at the minute .
Thanks for looking , Questions & comments welcome .
I'll be watching this one with interest
