    legionmexico.jpg Hi All this is the first piece that I have put on here as something I'm working on. this piece I had commissioned form Adam Mac masters he is a one off, (Thanks mate you did a great job) . so I'm just getting it ready for paint. all cleaned up and ready for primer. I hope to have him finished for the White Rose Xmas show. he is 75mm the horse is one I got from Steve Crisp at darkstar miniatures ( Thanks Mate). all the equipment and figure are scratch built. I will be taking him to the club tomorrow.

    I know not the best photo but hope you get the idea of what he will look like when finished the other hand is attached to the rains which will be added later. let me know what you think.

    Cheers

    Hi Ian
    The photos are too small to appreciate the work. Guess I will have to wait for tomorrow's White Rose club meet.
    Take care mate.

    Is this to go commercial?, it does look like it will be a nice piece but, photos a tad to small.

    Hi Ian, thanks for the photo, hope it will be a commercial one.
    What's strange is that it is an Englishman ( In leeds- and not in N.Y:rolleyes:) how propose figures of this period, II° Empire.
    Quite no figures from Italy, italian have forgot what Napoleon III did for their country !:whistle:

    Just seen this figure in the flesh at the White Rose club meet and it is stunning,caused quite a stir.

    Several of us are trying to persuade the Gringo to go commercial with it,it would be a winner.

    Hopefully he will bring it to the White Rose Xmas bash on the 13th December for others to view.

    Hi Pete
    Thanks mate I was blown away with the reception it got. well I'm going to find some one who will sculpt us a horse and we will take the rest from their. I have to say credit should go to Adam MacMasters who did the work he is a talent and one that we should see more of. watch this space for an up date on the horse we will see what we can come up with. and yes pete he will be at the White Rose Xmas Bash with paint on .

    Cheers

    Hi Zane yes your right it is one of his. I have just sent him a message about doing a Bare horse for Ellie's Miniatures hope he gets back. as this will be the base for our first mounted figure. so in the near future we should have some news. we will release it as a stand alone horse as well as a mounted kit. it will be in a action pose. so lets hope he contacts me soon.

    Cheers

    That's excellent news, i'm a huge fan of mounted figures, but there is limited bare horses in an action pose(other than 54mm). Hopefully you may set a trend for bare horses that aren't just standing.

    regards Zane
