Prince Józef Antoni Poniatowski, Marshal of the Empire in 75mm
Painted this figure up today for my fellow ex-pat Hawaiian buddy, James (aka Kimo). It is a 75mm metal figure which he must've had for sometime, as the manufacturer - Chota Sahib, has been out of business for decades. It's a nice enough figure, but I found some of the details, like the lacing on the collar and cuffs, sculpted in rather low relief. In fact, some 28mm figures have details easier to pick out with the brush. I ended up giving it a quick block paint job followed by Minwax staining. After I sped up the drying process with a hair dryer I gave it a shot of Dullcote and gave it some highlighting and details. It ended up pretty nice and have no problem letting Kimo know it's done.
