Ok my next figure 

made by ART GIRONA

(full title on box is) 

Lexington 'Minute Company', Massachusetts Militia. North America Independence War, 1775

Its 54mm scale (though actually 60mm)

The components (this one will need a lot of air holes filling [frown] but detail is great so the extra work will be worth it). I wont be using the base as I think this needs a nice wooden plinth.

And the box art

Thanks for looking

Update 

Under coated using  zenith technique (used Airbrush with tamiya xf black and white very thinned)

Started with waistcoat base coated with glaze of green (mixed from VMC Luftwaffe uniform green, VMA Armour brown, GW Chaos black and Rackham Mutant Green) using glazes to take advantage of pre shading done by undercoat.

[snapseed-383_zpsfvnmr6s5]   

Next applied first highlight with VMC ivory added to previous mix (again applied in glazes)

[snapseed-384_zpsv83nhb49] 

Next up shadow glazes applied using GW chaos black and VMA Armour brown added to base mix 

[snapseed-386_zpsgr3mrpmn]    

Final stage done by adding glaze of pure Armour brown to deepest ahdows

[snapseed-385_zpsze4bliyj] 

Breeches 

Base coat painted on in thin coats (it took 4 for this one) mix of Chaos black, Armour brown and Ivory 

[snapseed-388_zpsobd8mooi] 

Highlights grazes stippled on (to aid texture and make blending easier) base mix with added Ivory 

[snapseed-389_zpsqnk0rw7s] 

Shade built up again with glazes of base mix + Chaos black, armour brown and a touch of Luftwaffe uniform green and various thin glazes used to blend shade and highlights in mid tone

I love the way you make it all look natural. The way the shading is done is very realistic. You do amazing work Stephen. [smile]
