    Another one of the last batch of figures, this time something completely different for me. A drummer from the 2nd West India Regt, standing at attention (well almost) doing his thing. This figure will be a challange to paint up, not so much due to the lace and details, but rather to make a 'dull', static posed figure seem interesting. I am also looking forward to painting dark skintones, a first for me! 54mm orginal, including the head for once!

    Thanks guys! It was an interesting challange to sculpt and paint as it is very plain and static figure, no hiding behind an interesting dramatic pose here!! . The figure is almost finished now. In the mean time here are a few inprogress shots.

    This is so cool Anders!
    Love the sculpt and painting so far. The different textures on the shako are very well done.
    Your pieces truly have that 'Horan look & feel' which I mean as a big compliment!

    Cheers,
