Charles Deschamps de Boishébert et de Raffetot was born in Quebec on February 7th, 1727 and entered upon a military career early in life. Click the link for more background on this Officer for "Rebels and Patriot."

Nice looking figure. I never paint the eyes on 25s. Most people can't do it, nor should they attempt it.

I think the figure looks great, even without painted eyes. Like 79thPA, I don't even try to paint eyes as whenever I do, they always turnout to be "Googly" eyes. Better just to leave them off. At normal wargaming distances, it is not noticeable.

I agree with the two gentlemen above on eyes. Indeed, despite the saying "Wait until you see the whites of their eyes" few, if any people see or care to notice eyes even at close engagement distances. No need for eyes on the game table. I usually let my wash flow into the sockets and they look just fine.
