Yup, nicely painted... especially leather parts.. very realistic effect of worn out leather.

I see you are working your hair dryer again Luis. Once more you have achieved a miracle. I am missing the shot focused on the officer's face, but he appears in the other shots as a proud man of stately and aristocratic manner.

It is always with great awe that I receive your contributions. Your painting technique is directly out of oil paintings of 19th century. It is somewhat of a wonder to me. Really glad to see your work here.

This is top class figure painting, and in my favorite scale too... :yeah:
Irbis Miniatures are difficult for me to get hold of, but I do have three 75mm Avanpost 30-Years War kits in my stash and I really need to get around to painting them.

I join this opinion, because it's impossible to express it better and with less words, Luis. I become speechless enjoying all the incredible details your figures exhibit. :drool: :drool: :drool:

Just discovered this now. Breathtaking as we have come to expect! Your work is of the very highest order Luis. I salute you.

On the technical side I ‘d love to hear your painting technique. From the incredible consistently matt finish I’d imagine you use Vallejo paints…. What about your metals?
Do you use varnish and if so which?

I must say I would love to see some of your work a little less pristine and more battle weary with lots of dirt, mud and grime.
Sometimes I think miniatures, especially of rank and file, need a bit of blood and mud to show the less glamorous side of these amazingly beautiful Napoleonic costumes.
