French Cavalry Officer, Thirty-Years War

This was a second attempt in painting a dapple grey in oils. The last was in the late 90's! The figure and equipment are painted with acrylics.

The horse is from Historex and the figure is original. The head of the figure is from Historex with moustache and goatee added. The saddle is scratch as well as the officers sword. There some conversion work on the lobster/Ironside helmet. It's the same one I used in the ECW project I just finished. Going by the reference I had, the dome is fluted with nose guard through visor and feathers added to the top.

Thanks for looking.

Loved this figure. If you want to do a figure where the clothing of the period gives it attitude this is it. ~Gary
