    Hello fellow planeteers,

    Waiting for the oils to dry on some elaborate napoleonics, I splashed some paint on this older Verlinden bust representing a quartermaster sergeant of the 3rd New Jersey Cavalry, sculpture by this forum's pioneer Gordy Stronach.

    Thanks for looking,

    Great work Pierre! I've had this bust on my work bench for years, primed but never painted. I was thinking of painting it as one of my "oldies" efforts, but you beat me to it. :) As luck would have it, I've got plenty more. ;)

    Cheers,
    Ken

    Thank you very much for the comments guys!
    Ken, this fellow was staring at me for years, undercoated and eyes painted, I felt I should put some paint on that scowling face! As a matter of fact I've a dozen more oldies including your avatar, waiting mounted and undercoated to get some paint at last!

    Cheers,

    Very nice paintwork Pierre.....This guy has a unique look that's really not that good looking, but there's something about it that just makes it work. Whatever it is; it's very well done.....

    Super job Pierre. One of the more interesting Civil War uniforms.

    Thank you Wayne. Not the best looking guy in the figure world indeed, but a joy to paint.


    Thank you John.

    Thank you, Neal

    Dankjewel Ben.

    My pleasure Nap! I wonder if Gordy did some other sculpting for Verlinden.

    I'd, of course, love to see another painted version of my avatar and also some oldies. :)
