Hessian Musketeer, 1781

This is a figure I've wanted to do for some time. The subject was inspired by a Don Troiani study. The pose is different than the study, it's rather plain, but it's in this "shoulder firelock" position, that a soldier is typically seen performing in that period.

The head is from Hornet and the musket is a Shenandoah conversion. All painted in acrylics.

Jason, Awesome job pard. You really put a lot of life into his face and the uniform colors look spot on.~Gary

Thanks pard! I think the pic really washed out alot of color. There is much more contrast than shown.

You've been holding out on us. :D I like the patch on the pants too. You're bringing these to Chicago, I assume?

Yes Ma'am, I'll bring these to Chi-town. Hopefully I can get a couple more projects in before then.
