    Hi Guys,

    Having worked on the two Austrian Pandours previously released by Mookies Miniatures, I've been inspired to produce a third one - Carlstadt Pandour, 1742. 1/9 scale approx, using the head from one of my Greek busts as a basis, with additions in Milliput. Still much to do.... based on the Osprey illustrations.

    Hi Steve

    I wondered if you'd go for this ...glad you've decided to do so

    Very nice work on the hood ....

    Certainly a colourful set as in the picture from Osprey

    is there a method for using your chosen putty esoecially when doing something like this ?

    ...do you let it go off before you start shaping ?

    ..do you use Vaseline to smooth ?

    Look forward to more

    Happy sculpting

    Hi Kev, glad you like it so far - no real secret in using Milliput. Mix, apply, roughly shape, smooth off with an old brush and water, let it go off for about 10 mins, then back in with refining and smoothing with various shaped tools to crisp everything up.......(y)

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for the replying my questions appreciate that

    Must admit this looks good , the hood in particular ...nice moustache on him as well

    Going to be interesting to paint the face inside the hood or does the head come out ?

    Look forward to the final couple of bits and then the painting ...do share all three together if possible

    Happy benchtime

    Hi Kev - its all in one piece, but the shadow of the hood is deceptive. The face is more accessible for painting than it looks!!(y)

    Hi Steve

    Good to see the amount of work put into this and yo see the access for the face painting

    Nice touch adding the crucifix

    Not a good looker ...lol ......sure he will look normal primed

    Look forward to seeing this painted and alongside the other 2 you did

    Happy Benchtime

    Nice Sculpt!
    May I ask how do you fix the lead (or tin?) wire to the putty?
    Thanks in advance and look forward to see it complete.

    Thanks Eppi - I only use superglue, nothing special! I squeeze a little bit onto a scrap piece of paper, then apply it with a pin, so as not to get it everywhere!(y)
