Other test painted

I tried also this Neapolitan Guardsman, the back pack, cartridge pouch and sabre are a part piece, here the paint test as Granatiere and Velite della Guardia.

Despite the sculpture (which was one of the first) has some small problems of proportions, the painted ones are very impressive.

More veliti and horses different poses

Finally after 1 year preparation and concept i have developed a system to produce easily horses masters in different poses, and it works!!!! I'm happy to show you here the first tests. I hope there it will become  soon a production  of spare horses in the main poses, to add variety and avoid to use some very low quality ones.

The Veliti della Guardia are still on the workbench, making muskets and backpacks....  see the progress

Veliti della Guardia

Here the first shots of the Veliti della Guardia, which can also converted as Granatieri della Guardia; I'm here trying standing figures poses and proportions which i must say i'm still not very good at ; I want to make 8/10 figures "at ease" and may be later trying more action ones.
