    Greetings. I know you have all been waiting for my next thrilling instalment for the FOTM ( May.)
    This is Stormtroopers 120mm Figure painted with acrylics. It two has taken some time to finish and has had a number of trips to the Dettol Bath.
    Note it has no base as like the Coldstreamer it will be part of a bigger Diorama entitled Queen Victoria's Army of the East.

    My submission for May. It's the Reedees miniature 75mm, 95th Rifles retreat to Corunna. All acrylics except a small amount of oils for the rifle.
    I did try and use an airbrush for some of the blending on the blanket. Interesting experience,:unsure:

    Thanks for organizing this!

    Here's the last piece I completed. I missed out on entering it into the April FOTM (sorry!), so hopefully no one will object too much if I submit it this time around. The figure is Pegaso's 90mm Heian Period Samurai. It is painted entirely in acrylics and all of the design work on his chest and clothing was done freehand.

    Hey All
    It's been a while since I posted anything new as my production has been low the last couple of months.
    Anyway...

    For the month of May... and your consideration.
    A 1/12 bust from FeR miniatures representing a trooper of the Polish Lancers of the Imperial Guard. Painted with Scale 75, Vallejo and DarkStar acrylics... and loving care of course.

    Meet Stanislaw...

    Good day to everyone. It was suggested that I put this project in May's figure of the month. It is my latest Dragoon drummer 1808. It is 90% Historex with a little Magic Sculpt, and a Michael Roberts horse head. Painted in acrylics, and
    printers ink for the metals.
