    Legion Miniatures Musketeer bust 1/9 with legs added, another one to my long list of half figures with legs added in milliput & magic sculpt, everything is ready now for cleaning up a little then priming ready for painting...if I ever get around to actually doing some painting, I'm going to have this guy stood in a swampy environment.
    Hope you like him
    Cheers

    Nice work Jim. This bust lends itself to this type of conversion in the way it has been sculpted. As you know only too well, this is not always the case!

    Thank you Francisco, glad you like it, the bust is from Legion Miniatures and the legs have been added just for my own use, so I'm afraid it's not commercial as a full figure.

    Thanks Rob
    Glad you think he's come out well and yes one of the more straightforward half figures to add legs to, just need to get some paint on him whenever that'll be?(y)
    Cheers

    I'll echo the others. Fantastic work Jim! Looks like it was always meant to be a full figure. Great sculpting on the conversion.

    Cheers,

    Jim, a very nice, seamless conversion. As well as being a good way of using your sculpting skills, you get a full figure for the price of a bust (and some putty)
