    This is my completed 200mm conversion of Carl Reid's Louisiana Tiger bust, produced & sold by SK miniatures, He's now all painted up mostly in oils over an enamel undercoat.
    I converted this to the full figure a little while ago (as per previous post) he's now a "Collis Zouave" 114th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry set in 1863 at the battle of Gettysburg, where this regiment fought & were decimated, all conversion work was carried out using milliput & magi-sculpt, hope you like him and all comments are very welcome.
    Cheers(y)

    Thanks Guy's for all your kind comments, I must admit this one caused me a few problems but I'm pleased with the end result,
    Yes Ken the piece of wood/log that he's sat on did come from the battlefield, I picked it up last year, think it just adds that little bit more for me.
    Nap......Oils rule!
