    This year RP models have to change lots of launch we planned. The work taking care of the others isn't a excuse but it's a reality. We are ending the year and we are going to release this bust and the 2nd diorama of this year with will be the Siege of Vienna, but that will be for another day...

    This bust tells a history of a priest who belong to a group of guerrillas that ravaged Napoleon's army during the Peninsular War.

    We tried to develop a bust with a warrior dynamic, seeking characteristic elements of its role in society, such as the Bible that you have in your bag...

    The box has a QRcode, with is easily accessed. By clicking on this, you will be able to access the website and all the photos and information that we used to develop this figure. It is intended with this technology, to assist in the painting of the bust, being able to access all the information.

    This bust have 3 heads and you can choose what you want.

    Hello Mr. Steve

    Thank you so much. Its true... Its a very different bust. When I study the Peninsular War in Military Academy it was very nice to understand the priests take part in the fight, helping people in a battle against occupation. This was a representation.. We give a symbol touch when we put the Bible in the back. Its easier to take out and read.. Bring peace to the mind and body... Im very happy with this result... And Im very happy because the answer Im receiving.. It wil be a very popular bust..

    Thank you so much.
    With best regards

    Hi Hugo

    A good way to end the week ......one word from me TEXTURES

    As expected a well researched piece , nice details all over , like the option for the head ...like the last one ....the Modeller could always have the hat hanging at the back as well by adding the cord

    Like the staff but again the option of converting to a edged weapon or maybe a cross

    Thank you for sharing

    Brushes at the ready ....great artwork from RICARDO PISA on this as well

    Hello BIG GUY

    Ho are you? How are the things?

    This is a very good answer. Im very happy. Sometimes when we do things outside of the box you have afraid if the things dont work... But in this case works very well. Im very happy... In the beginning I put a cross on, but to avoid problems I take her out and put a stick on... You can convert. Its better...

    The heads are nice because allow you choose what you like and want. You can choose what you like more...

    Thank you so much for everything.
    Big hug and a kiss to Carole

    Hi Hugo.
    Fantastic! This will make a great change of pace for me. Loving the textures and the atmosphere surrounding the figure.
    I like the head with the tonsure and coupled with Naps idea of having the straw hat hanging loose.

    Mine is on order from SK Miniatures here in the UK.
    Good luck and here’s to the day we can get together again.

    Another superb release Hugo and love the choice of heads available. Great textures on show and no doubt the quality will be up to your usual high standards. The scene Nap depicts with the priest and Hussar would make a great vignette if you ever decide to add legs to this one (deep breath Kev...)
