Mounted British Waterloo Colonel from Victrix

Here's my first foray into Napoleonics. Not sure if this will ever turn into a full blown project but I'd like to paint a few just for fun because the uniforms are so interesting and colorful. I used the picture from their website as a guide so I hope it's close to being accurate.

This is the first Victrix miniature I've painted, and I was really happy with it. It is from the VXP0002 'Mounted British Waterloo Colonels & Foot Pioneer' blister. All of the figures were well cast and clean of almost all flash.



This one is a little bit blurry. Maybe one day I'll get the whole photographing miniatures thing down. This miniature isn't this shiny, it's just the flash.

Thanks for looking!

Nice work; full of character. BTW, I think the saddle blanket was normally the same color of the facings for the unit. Regards, Dean

Dean- you're right. Guess I rushed that one.

Again, thanks for the compliments.

Galpy,
I did a light matte coat on this, but it needs another. Although most of the shine on this is from the flash from my camera.
