Pegaso 54mm Captain Danjou French Foreign Legion Camerone

Hello again to all. I hope the New Year is going well with you all.

I am way overdue for a post, but been busy painting, so here goes.

This is one of 4 more figures that make up a diorama of The Last stand at Camerone by the French Foreign Legion in Mexico, on the  30th April 1863.
The kit is by Pegaso, which I bought from Ebay, having been started so had to be stripped etc.
This figure is of the Captain who led the defence,  he is Captain Danjou.
I wont go into babbling on about the history of the fight yet, it is interesting but I shall wait until diorama is finished.  I will state that Danjou had a wooden left hand as can be hopefully seen in picture.

Any comments or questions are most welcome.

Thanks for looking,  Michael.
