    I have just finished work on this 54mm figure by Tommy's War Victorian Heroes, Captain of The Queens Own Cameron Highlanders 1882. I decided to change a few things on the figure to put my own personal touch on it. I have changed the head and used a Hornet head form the spares box, which I converted carving off the head gear and sculpting hair to it, including moustache and side burns.The figure is to represent Captain F.S Chapman who fought in The battle of Tel-El- Kebir in September of 1882. I have also changed some of the creases on the tunic etc... I have painted him in Vallejo and Jo Sonja acrylics. Hope you like him.

    Excellent changes, painting and presentation.
    My particular favourite element is the head, which looks very Victorian.

    Cheers,
