    Hi Guys

    Just a line to show you what I have been working on as well as the trumpeter, slight conversion to the head of a Pagan Miniatures Buccaneer bust, the rest is scratch, Magicscup and Plasticard.

    Critique always welcome........

    Excellent conversion!

    I love how you made the head in the forward angle that is so often missed.

    Looking forward to the next step!

    Dave - This is excellent! That head thrusting forward is going to make the whole bust! Wow! I hope you aren't planning a big, floppy hat or anything else that would detract from that position. It's marvelous, don't lose it!

    All the best,
    Dan

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the comments.

    Marc, sorry mate, he is going to be a Buff Coat Officer of the English Civil War

    Dan, No big floppy hat... :lol: but he will have a single bard lobstpot helmet, so it shouldn’t cover all that expression on the face

    Dave, Your work is really clean (a good thing). While I do not know much about the period, I'm wondering if the armor follows the contour of the body too closely. It's just a thought.~Gary

    Maybe this shows the difference a little better.~Gary

    Hi Gary

    Good point I will look into it, I would just like to say the pedastal is not the final one, as I want him to be leaning forward by a couple of degrees, this may change the look of it slightly

    Dave, GREAT conversion! I always thought that buccaneer had potential beyond the original bust. Is he going to have a string of the powder flasks we often see on ECW figures across his chest? Keep us posted, anxiously awaiting this one coming together!

    Hi Guys

    just a little update, I have added the Cuirass straps and the customary musket dent, and I have started the helmet

    Hi Gary - I have looked over the depth of the cuirass and figured out that the part `i was using to mount the head to the soulders was a bit too volumous, I have not adjusted this yet, but I will when I add the buff coat collar

    It's looking good Dave. I like it. Is he going to have arms?
  17. Hardy Guest

    Thanks guys for the compliments

    Hi John - I am trying not add to much of the arms, kind of defeats the object of it being a bust then, but thats why I want it to have as much agression in the face and stance of the shoulders as possible

    Hi Hardy - thanks for the compliments, especially your wish to paint it, a very big compliment indeed. It would be good if you could, but unfortunately, its an idea I have had on the back burner for about a year and I have so many ideas on the painting of it, that I realy dont want to let it go, thanks again

    Dave
  19. Hardy Guest

    Dont blame you mate, you could throw paint at that face and it would look great.
