    Hi Nap,
    Following along on this one,I'm considering trying one of Andys' busts.
    More than likely the 'Lucky Crete' unless something new springs up that I like.

    How was the prep for it,was there much in the way of mould lines ann pur points?

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for comments ...Andys kits are full of character depicting the battlefield soldier , his sculpting style is something I like sometimes a little heavy with some seams to fill ...so a bit of prep will be needed but you will have fine little project really showing soldiering .

    "Lucky" is another really nice piece with the comments above applying ..I have it also lined up ready as well as some more from Andy ...on a bit of a Kharki run at the moment it seems!!

    The kits are certainly worth a visit ...not just busts as well some really nice figures as well

    Thanks for looking in

    Hi Bob,

    They are as I said full of character and very life like ..have a go with one Andy does all scales all with very natural poses .

    UPDATE on my soirée ...head harness all finished just buckles to do then the reins , the halter rope ..then the bandolier .........

    (Oh before painting the harness I reworked the harness a bit more !)

    Then it's the lad himself!

    I will get some picture's done tommorow

    Hi Guys,

    As promised a couple of updated pics ..head harness all done ...buckles and reins WIP

    The halter rope will be a very dirty white/Kharki sort of colour as I don't think it would be that clean!

    Thanks for looking in

    Looking at it now I think I might look again at the mane possiblly lighten it slightly ..not sure though!..might look different when all the bandolier/ rope is done

    Cheers I am pleased with the blaze ....wasn't sure how far to go but it started as a small diamond in the middle ..and grew.

    Been doing a bit on the reins inbetween watching "The Longest Day"!!!!!

    Thanks for looking in

    Hi

    I agree the horse texture is well done ..going to highlight it a bit more once all the harness is finished

    Thanks for looking in

    Hi Guys,

    But late to do pics really so not too great ...horse all finished except the buckles and mouth bits ..then it's the man himself !

    Wanted to show a difference in leather colour between the harness and the bandolier which is a more darker leather ..

    It all looks a lot better in real life ..honest!

    Thanks for looking in
