|The work itself - truly delightful!|
Wargames Foundry produced their version of the figure many years ago sculpted by the mega talented Perry brothers whilst still doing work for them. As I looked at the FB post I remembered I had the very same model and decided that I would do my best to get it complete and turn it into another highly volatile and flamboyant French Aide De Camp for General D'Armee.

almost 32 years ago! Bloody hell that's a long time.
I still need to finish a few bits and pieces, varnish and of course hide the metal supports for the front legs however I am very happy how its turned out so far.
|I love that painting so much I have a large canvas version hung on one of the walls in my wargames room. Here|
