Salute 2011 Figure

The readers of my blog will remember I wrote a big "thank you" for Ian from The Blog With No Name for the price I won on his "give away". For those who missed it, you can read it here. Finally I managed to paint the big figure of his gift and show you the result here.

I don't paint much 28 mm figures, but sometimes I get that feeling that I have to paint something else. And this one I couldn't resist. I found it such a beautifull sculpt that I wanted to see it painted myself. Before I started I did some research and found out that Confederate Cavalry always had yellow colours. I hope that it is historical correct. If not please let me know. Painted him with acrylic paints and washes.

And now the pictures. I hope you like him.





Sorry, but I can't paint eyes. Tried it, but with no success.

Ian thanks again by sending me this figure!

Welcome to my blog!!!!!

  6. You are a lucky winner!
    Nice work and nice scale.
    Strange you couldnt paint the eyes,
    Cause you are used to pant small details...
    But cool work, I say more 28mm!!!

  11. Fantastic work Peter! Love the dynamic pose of the rider and the horse... the paint adds so much to a small story unfolding! Great work! :D

  12. Very well done; and correct on the yellow. The "official" colors were yellow for cavalry, blue for infantry, and red for artillery. Although there was a lot of variety.
