    Last week I received the latest release from Stormtrooper Miniature's Black Sheep series of a British Officer, 43rd Light infantry during the Napoleonic Wars. This bust is sculpted by the ever talented Maurice Corry and painted by PlanetFigure's own Mark Bennett (gothicgeek). An excellent step-by-step article can be seen here .

    The kit arrived in a sturdy white cardboard box with all the parts sealed inside a bubble wrap envelope. After unwrapping and opening the envelope the small parts were sealed inside a clear zip-lok bag.

    An excellent kit by Stormtrooper Miniatures. All dry-fitting done was excellent. Some mold blocks will need to be removed. Highly recommended.
