    Another nice bust from Rob Lane of elan13, this one a Billman from the Wars of the Roses period 1455-1485.

    After priming I wanted to slightly give some weathering texture to the metalwork, I did this with neat Artist's oils stippled on the required surfaces, this of course had to be left to fully harden off, so I completed two other busts before going back to him.

    The oils are now hard so I shall continue on this bust.

    I like the worn effects on his helmet Geoff. It did snow heavily at the battle of Towton.

    Thanks Bob and Nap, I haven't touch him since posting Bob what with the nice weather and a few jobs to do to keep someone happy.
    I have been thinking of the DAK one just a shame there is no headgear.

    Thanks guys, I do sometimes, but now sometimes in the afternoon, but with this lovely weather I have come to a stop as I have some jobs that need doing in the 1/1 world.

    Thanks Rob, I think that answers Neil's post.
