ALTORES Medieval Footman 1:10 scale

    Cannonball, Neil, Housecarl, Gary, and Terry,

    thank you so much for your comments, which are very welcome at the the final streches of this project. After some weeks of painting a figure, I often feel a lack of interest building up inside me. With your support, I am able to keep up the momentum.

    I have to admit, the pattern is pure fantasy. It just looked good to me. I know, however, that this pattern was common in medieval heraldry. In Germany, you still find it a lot in city coat of arms.

    This week, I was busy trying to hide all the crimes, I did so far and should finsih the upper body by tomorrow. Hence, the next update is about to follow. With his huge and pretty nasty looking weapons painted, he then should be done by the end next week (if my plan survives contact with reality).

    Terry, I am also very happy with the muted colors. I wanted him to give a rather dirty, battle-worn appearance and fresh vibrant colors just wouldn't work. Having said this, some more weathering is about to happen.

    Greetings from Germany

    The footman passed some major milestones and he is well on his way to completion. The right hand and his weapons havn't seen paint yet.

    I declare my footman done!
    What a bust and what a pleasure to paint it. A clever composition, great sculpting quality, lot of different fabrics, and, most importantly, a figure that tells a story.

    Hope you like it as much as I do.

    Hi Sven,
    I'm currently working also on this bust. Yours is looking great and I wonder what material you've tried to resemble for the "hoodie"? Sheepskin worn inside out ?
    Best regards,
