This one was started some time in the very dim and distant pass. However, I was never happy with it and it got hidden at the back of the storage cupboard.
Time to resurect it. Did some surgery on the right hand so that the flintlock can be held as per the picture on the box. I think this was one of the things that bugged me back then, but all is well now. Stripped and re-primed,
so now I have something else on the go to fill those quiet moments on other builds.
Been working on the "poshteen" colours used are Yellow Ochre for the base plus Light Flesh for the highs and US Tan-Earth for the lows. Filigre work on the coat is Burnt Umber. The fur will be black\brown when I get to it.
I've now blocked in the rest of the colours and quite like where it's headed.
However, one small thing is nagging at me and your views would be appreciated. I have gone with blue for the head wrap\scarf but am now wondering if green might be better. I have a rather nice green that I have used on French Dragoon uniforms and Rifleman jackets and am wondering if this would be a better contrast\match.
