    Hi everyone:

    I made this bust more than a year ago but it seems that it will not be released...

    In any case I am proud of my work and I'd like to show it. Its made with Milliput and Green Stuff, in 1/10 scale.

    Hope you like it.

    .

    You should be proud, it's a cracking piece.
    I'm hooked on just about everything to do with Reivers and this would have been a great addition.
    I wonder if the fact that it shows a figure being injured that limits it's potential market.
    Had he been holding a Jeddart Staff across his body I think it might have more appeal.
    The sculpt of the arms make repositioning a very easy conversion so if it becomes a commercial release I'll be getting one.
    Cheers

    Jeddart justice is the only justice! Let the hot trod begin! Etc etc. I love a bit of reiving. Shame this isn't going to sale, it could well have been my first bust.

    A fine piece of work there , I really like it, a great pose you can feel the pain of the wound , lovely facial details .

    Like others I am at a loss as to why this isn't commercial a true shame ....have you no castings ?

    Possibly like Del says the arrow wound might have affected but not for me but I do like his idea to change it .

    There was many moons ago a Verlinden Bust of a Medieval Soldier holding a arrow sculpted by Derek Holmes that was a similar pose.

    Please do more and lets hope a commercial piece comes soon.

    Thanks for sharing and BE PROUD of your work

    This is a great bust and I cannot understand why it hasn't been released commercially. I can see it selling easily. I am a Scott by surname which is a great old Reiver family name and I hope you will be able to get this released.

    Great bust.

    I released one that is quite similar....sales were surprisingly poor following great feedback in sculpting...so a difficult choice to whoever has this lovely master.

    Just as a personal opinion, I think the sculpting of this bust is far more attractive than that of the earlier Verlinden bust, and better proportioned.
    Best wishes, Gary.
