WIP Critique British 12th Lancer, 1914

    I have two more Lancers started - this British Lancer and an Austrian. I thought I'd post some WIP photos of the British Lancer with most of the equipment on the horse and maybe 50% of the figure complete. 1/16th scale - as usual. The usual combinations of Kneadtite and MagicSculpt grey and brown.

    The horse is a Verlinden Napoleonic stripped of all saddle, bridle and other bits and the back legs reinforced with brass bar. The horse equipment is a mix of castings made by Bob Stein using my originals and some sculpted on the horse (the belly band, a bag for oats, etc.). I used a sword from the Victory Miniatures kit and a head and hat are from other kits.

    Next I'm going to add a stake and rope on the horse. I need to retouch the tail hair a bit. After that the horse should be about complete.

    The wood part of the lance is made and I just need to add the blade, bottom reinforcement and hand hold and, probably a hand on the lance.

    The rider is a scale six feet or 1828 mm. His chest is still the basic armature, although I've sanded and carved on it to get the position I wanted. The boots, spurs (other than the actual spur itself), riding trousers, etc. are about right, although they need clean-up.

    Hope you like it!

    All the best,
    Dan

    The rider - the head and boots and hat came from kits.
    The horse - originally a Verlinden Napoleonic.
    The equipment - the rifle is from a kit. I used from the trigger back only. The sword is from another kit. The rest of the equipment I made and Bob Stein cast all the remaining resin parts you see.

    All the best,
    Dan
