I was gifted a roughly 35mm casting of Liberty Leading the People. The flag is cast as one piece with the woman. Anyone have any tips to share about how to paint it?

I believe there is a famous painting of this subject, on which I expect the figure is based.

Here is the painting.

Oh, that wasn't the issue, the issue was painting the cast on flag. I have the painting bookmarked. The figure is now done. I'll post a link to photos when it's completely finished.

Good job, Nick!

Thanks, Jim. I discovered that the figure was a giveaway at a convention.

Yes, it went in the swag bags at Lancaster one year. And your looks much better than mine.

Very nicely done

That painting could well be the origin of the phrase, "Letting it all hang out."

Nice, but I can't think how you'd use such a figure in a game though….
