    Please see below my latest rendition of this excellent bust Latorre's 93rd Highlander at the Crimean War. I have had this bust for a very long time and recently took the pieces of it out of the attic to give it a spruce up. I cleaned up the colours of his jacket and added some darker shading to his face then, because his pipe had been lost. I fashioned him a new clay pipe from milliput but put this on the other side of his mouth. In the process I remodelled one side of his moustache as it looked a bit messy where his old pipe used to be.

    I hope that you like the latest rendition of this finely crafted bust from Raul Garcia Latorre. In my opinion Mr latorre is a genius and over the years I have enjoyed painting many of his released pieces. Now in my older years I am enjoying repainting them. Next on here will be his Madagascan Pirate which I have just finished repainting. Please feel free to comment.

    Hi Nap,
    Thanks for the comments. No, the colours on the photo are right. I went for a "dirtied up veteran of the campaign" look. It's just my style.
