He's fantastic. A great sculpt with a lot of character, and you're given him a worthy paint job.

Got to agree with all of the above. Great first attempt :-*
You need to do the base to finish it off. Mix a little sand into some PVA glue (White glue) and paste it onto the top of the base and fill in the hole.
or
Fill in the hole with filler. Paint PVA glue all around the top of the base and then dip into some sand. Use your finger to clean around the side of the base before it drys.

When it is dry, paint it as required.

Nice group of Belgian chaps you have there.

You are doing great, and just think, after painting another 4,000 miniatures, you probably will be the best painter in the joint!

********Foundry's Belgian riding a mule********update Jan 10****************

My first mounted (in a mule...) and the last of this group... There is some differences in the tones of the mule in the middle, but it's a light effect taking the photo -the real tone is the same in both sides of the animal, and more bluish-



I must find some little stones for this base...
