Marshall Murat - Part two



The Block undercoating is taking place - note the bright yellow of the Dragoon Officers horse!


As mentioned in the last post, the wonderfully talented Doug Mason very kindly agreed to recreate the superb command stand that I have often admired that graced many a page and cover in the famous wargaming publications of the world.


The transformation is starting to take shape


The undercoating of the base colours continues on.


Now that looks fantastic - not a hint of canary yellow horse flesh to be seen.


Side by side and you can start to see how the final command stand is going to look.


A view once again highlighting the intricate soldering and converting work that Doug has completed on the reins
and the other "flying" horse furniture!


The next post will piece together the final painting touches from the master and the finished stand as well.

    1. Cheers Greg. It's always amazing to see behind the scenes as a hobby legend lifts the curtain and gives you an insight into how he does something.

    1. Hi Dave - thanks for the kind words and as I know you would have seen and played with some of Dougs figures for quite sometime yourself. However few people paint as well as you mate!
