    Finished this one a little while back and just got photos (Thanks Guy!).

    Positive Crit's are appreciated!

    I was tempted to title this one "Hey, That's how I lost my first eye!"

    Looks great Kevin. The foiliage is top notch and really is a nice setting for him.
    I question your "circa 1350" though. Possibly you meant 1550 The gun is an example of a searlock matchlock arquebus along with apostles on the baldric and are indicative to the 16th c. Given that contact with the new world at best would be late (1492 at least) 15th early 16thc. The macaw would possibly make him one of Cortes's soldiers during the conquest of mexico in 1520? The clothing also is more of a later style also.
    The colors you've chosen are really nice and make him standout. You did a great job on the highlights and the folds on his doublet.

    Thanks guys!

    Renart, You are 100% correct! My typo mistake! This is a Conquistador in Mexico. I had great fun with this figure! Enjoyed the research of pics for the Macaws, beautiful animals!

    Marcel, It is an old Beneito figure that I picked up from The Red Lancers.

    Item: BE90-07

    SPANISH ARQUEBUSIER WITH PARROT ON HIS ARM, MEXICO 1520


    The head is a little flat and requires building out but other than that, it was just plain fun to complete!

    Guy, this is the one I did when I burned out on the mounted samurai that I was working on forever (and may one day finish, LOL).

    Thanks for your thoughts guys!
