CGS Military Figures 200mm Bust
Imperial Guard 1815
Sculpted by Carl ReidOne of my favourite Euro purchases this year and it's jumped the queue on the workbench while I work on the groundwork and bases for the Nocturna Roman and Germanic Warrior.
Assembly was a breeze with all parts fitting without issue, very nice casting and superb sculpt as usual from Carl Reid. I am keeping the head seperate for ease of painting and have undercoated the whole thing in Jo Sonjas Carbon Black through the airbrush. I have followed that with some pre-highlighting using the airbrush from a directional light angle. Using a mix of Jo Sonjas Paines Grey, French Blue and a touch of Ultramarine Blue for the coat and first section of the Tri-Colour flag, the red section has received a spray of Napthol Red and Napthol Crimson mix. The face has had a mid fleshtone mix airbrushed over, again made from Jo Sonjas.
All ready for the brushwork.
