WIP Doppelsöldner Bust

    Dear Planeteers,
    I am currently working on this colorful gentleman. It’s the mercenary bust from ALTORES (1:10 scale). Actually he is a “Doppelsöldner”, literally meaning he is paid for two. He is carrying with ease a ridiculously long and heavy “Bihänder,”a large two-handed sword primarily in use during the 16th century.Due to their large size and weight and therefore increased range and striking power, these swords were not carried in a sheath but across the shoulder like a halberd.
    Landsknechte loved to wear colorful and fancy clothes. He is almost finished, some more highlights here and there. Hence, I was not afraid to go overboard by using a lot of colors.
    The cast is perfect and the sculpt wonderful as all ALTORES products.
    Let me know, what you think.
    Stay save!

    Paul,
    this is incredible. Who would dare to carry this giant weapon over the battlefield for an entire day? Great pic!
