    Hi everyone

    This is the next on the bench

    Sculpted by Derek Holmes and cast in very limited numbers scale is abut 250/300mm

    The master is now owned by a good friend Norman Otty

    Why this one l..saw Norman's version in a Historical Miniatures Magazine remembered I had it sat at the back of the shelf of shame !

    Here's the magazine pic image.jpeg

    Pics of the actual painted piece Norman sent me

    The actual master

    Currently he is all base coated up , might do to a Rounhead Regt as I like the orange sash but of course he could be painted as a Royalist as well

    Still to decide on coat colour ...all ideas welcome...sash colour is not fixed

    Using the Scalecolour tubed Artists acrylics for this ...like them so far

    Hat finished , eyes done

    Next flesh, teeth , hair, then coat, armour belt , sash

    ...well that's the plan!

    Here's the WIP pics

    He's an ugly bugger but your brush work will shine through. Nice work so far mate.

    Socially distanced shopping???....That's what you call mental imaging...And that's usually handled by Mrs. Palmer and her five daughters.:happy: Looks like a fun piece to do and looks good so far. The "teef"..I mean toof... really adds to the character.

    Hi ya Jim

    Relation ...of course ...he's good looking ....had this for years and seeing Normans in that magazine pushed my brain cell ( note singular ) .....

    As much as I tried no medals although senior officers were sometime given medallions for their service

    Nungesser ...oh yes ...well happy ....basecoating now

    Happy benchtime
