French Musketeer

Posted by PhilC on 14 Apr 2018, 22:18

Hi everyone. It's been a while since my last post, and I had little time for our hobby, but today I decided to paint my first musketeer from the Ultima Ratio set UR011 "Musketeers of the King of France".

Here you are the result, what do you think of it ?

Fantastic shading! Helps to have such a great backdrop, too.

Very nice figure and a very nice building.

The shading/highlighting on all of the fabrics is excellent but that glass bottle is incredible, i was convinced it was made of glass.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Wiking: the next mini could be either a Cardinal's musketeer, or a King's Musketeer holding a glass. What is best ? To fight or to share the bottle ? :)

No doubt...share the bottle, PhilC. Don't forget that they are men before soldiers. And men of the XVII Century loved drink. :lol:

Great paint work on this figure, congratulations.

Santi.

They are swordsman in the story. Musketeers seems like a cool name.
