Chasseurs in pink! #2

Here's the first cab off the rank, and I'm quite pleased with him.

Rather than splash out on a pot of pink paint which I probably wouldn't use again, I rummaged around in the kids' art stuff and came across a tube of artist's acrylic that seemed to fit the bill and hey, presto! Pink facings!

Who's a pretty boy, then?

I still need to tidy up the epaulets and other minor details but I'm happy with it. I've painted a couple of other figures, including the officer, but I think he's the pick of the crop so far.

    @Treb - You're a wordsmith, mate! Shakespeare should blush for shame!
