    Hi Daniel

    Nice blue on him , looking good and full of character

    He would also make a great bust ...imagine the lacework in 1/10th !

    Thanks for the updates

    Happy benchtime

    Back to work on these little fellas after a couple weeks , shelves collapsed on my workbench , many finished figures will have to be glued some parts, it sucks but that prompted me to get a new workbench and reorganize my entire work area.
    First use of my new bench and working on the Livreé Royal or king's Livery lace.. 20221101_212154.jpg

    I have finished this drummer today, he was 80% done and it was time to bring him to the fray.
    I adapted the drum from a left out figure , added a left hand over the drum and used wire for the drum sticks and putty for the drum sticks ends.. 20221109_202310.jpg 20221109_202341.jpg 20221109_202407.jpg 20221109_202235.jpg

    Started another conversion , tgis is going to be the officer on horseback ( arrow) .
    I have used a left out figure from Triguard, a French general .
    Got rid of the head and right arm , built some areas of the coat and added the lace with lead foil and a bare head which i sculpted his wig. 20221112_081811.jpg 20221112_082344.jpg 20221112_082242.jpg
