    77th regiment of foot

    Guys,this is the figure that nearly drove me nuts.A beautiful figure but a pain to paint.It's smaller than 54mm actually.Anyway, hope you like it

    Do you use flash to take the pics? You have to avoid that at all cost.

    Good work Steve

    I love the drum and it's colours on ... yep I know the feeling when painting something almost 1/35 ... apart that this is a boy and comes even smaller!

    Nice work Stephen Wink as for the picture, you can edit the colors with a simple click using Picasa (it's free)

    Picasa is a program similar to photoshop but not so complex and with less features.

    This is what I did. It's not that different but as you can see the yellowish image is gone.
