    I just started painting the English officer by Pabelo,I have sadly temporarily benched The French trumpeter.

    Please ignore the brown paint on his hand and cuff, just practicing before painting the jacket.

    Pabelo Miniatures has asked me to do the box art for their latest release, I thought it would be fun to do it as a work bench project.

    Dana, you are very welcome, and thanks for the kind words.

    I use automobile gray primer, very cheap, but works well.

    Cheers

    That's a choice bit of sculpting! What lovely folds and a terrific face!

    And the painting ain't so bad either! ;) :) Seriously Roc, it's great!

    Tis not my period, historically, but I could easily be swayed by the English Civil War. I have Haythornthwaite's excellent ECW book and the illustrations by Jeffrey Burn are nothing short of magnificent.

    Is the figure a Royalist cavalry officer?

    What scale is this, please?

    It may be the temporary mounting, but it looks like the whole figure is leaning forward - within his boots. The boots are straight up and down, but the rest of the figure is leaning forward.

    All the best,
    Dan

    i've sent to Roc all my references used during sculpting that figure. If there are no mistakes in osprey i hope so there are no mistakes in that figure.. Roc, what do You think about it?

    Thanks Dan, Appreciate the kind words and I'm glad you like it so far.

    The figure stands well I assure you, it is just the temporary mounting.
    If you look a little closer You can see that there are metal rods going up his feet, the figure is hanging loose and not permanently attached.

    As you can see from this picture, the figure stands well.

    Kamil your research is very correct, I did my own research and it coincides with your research.

    It's always refreshing to see a sculptor do accurate research.

    Keep up the excellent work and have a great New Years. ;)

    Cheers
    Roc. :)
