    ok I continue... i did years ago a Bonaparte in Egypt that remain in the unfinished project. a picture can be interesting...

    old 0551.jpg is still in his stage, doesn't mean that one day could be finished

    I show you the above figure to explain that in some way i did some experience to make this figure

    the camel version

    I choose into Nemrod range the camel ( i practically bought any camel available on the market for this project:):) I have camels for years...)
    final choice also using the hussar legs. useful due to the position
    2017.02.14-01.jpg instead of terracotta I'm using grey-green milliput. I rebuilt the carpets on the saddle


    2017.02.15-01.jpg 2017.02.15-03.jpg some progress, bust has been completed and the label fly

    2017.02.14-12.jpg 2017.02.14-13.jpg 2017.02.14-14.jpg

    man has been completely sculpt in Fimo green and some details were added in milliput grey green. Fimo is an excellent material except that needs to be cocked.

    Not sure that the head will remain the same
