French Infantry Carabinier, 1796

Here's the painted Frenchman. I gave him a striped vest to add more color. I'm pretty satisfied on how he turned out.

I'll add pics of the Austrian soon. Thanks for following.

Thanks Radek! Yes, French soldiers of this period can be very colorful even with dirt and tatters.

Jason, That is great. I really like the look of early Napoleonics. There's something about combinig military and civilian clothing that yields cool results. I really like the finish of the face and hands. The transitions look really subtle. ~Gary

Thanks pard. I spent a little more time on the face. It's one of the few that I've done that gave some satisfaction.
