WIP Confederate Cavalry Officer

    Dear Planeteers,
    Since I am currently waiting for some busts to arrive on my doorstep, I thought I would be able to squeeze in another little project. This Confederate Officer bust was not high on my priority list but the perfect figure to keep me busy during lockdown. There is still some work to do, but more or less this Stormtroopers Miniatures bust in 1:10 scale is finished. I couldn't find many reference pictures online. It appears, that this bust wasn't that popular, which is a shame.
    Hope you like it.
    Best regards from Berlin
    Sven

    Sven, Like this bust a lot. Wish I could find one! Thanks for posting your work. Love the way you pulled off the facial details.(y) and the shell jacket as well! Gave him a rakish look! Old JEB Stuart would be proud!

    Thanks a lot Terry. I purchased this bust for a very reasonable price. I guess the dealer wanted to make room for newer items. I agree, its a great bust with a battle hardened face. Good luck finding another copy.

    Excellent work Sven. This bust is certainly an overlooked gem and I'm sorry that I did not secure one.

    Very nice work (y).

    Actually one of my favourite Stormtroopers busts, and I was fortunate enough to get hold of one (still unstarted in the stash, but winking at me now). I'm also surprised to read that it apparently didn't sell too well.

    Honestly, there are quite a few figures in my grey army waving at me at the moment. That's o.k. though, as long as my wife does not notice.

    Merry Christmas!

    This looks fantastic! I was seriously thinking about purchasing this bust. I enjoy American Civil War pieces. Did you use all acrylics? Great work.

    Hi Johan,
    yes, it is done in acrylics only. I am not a patient painter and oils require to much drying time. (y) Thank you very much.

    That’s fantastic. I’m the opposite right now. For some reason I can’t get the acrylic technique down. Your work is fantastic!
