    Hi guys :)

    For almost a year I have been cut off from work. Health and related issues have taken me away. Well, everything turns good. Before I share with you the pieces from the new line of HQ projects, there will be a few more figures in the simpler, not so elaborate Toy Soldiers style.

    It is a French horseartillery officer of the Napoleon's army.

    The figurine is made of Bees Putty, the basic wire skeleton was first coated with a thin layer of Magic Sculp epoxy, and Magic Sculp is a scabbard and sword with the right palm.

    The figure was finished by the end of 2018.

    Thanks for watching.

    Fantastic Borek! Glad to see you back sculpting. (y)

    Your "simpler, not so elaborate Toy Soldiers style" is superb and plenty elaborate for me. :)

    Great work.

    Nice to hear you are back on the saddle and as I have said in the past I cannot see why these beauties of yours should or could not be painted as the figures they are."Toys"?I don't think so.They are figures mate.And good ones too!

    Skvělá práce Borku. Přechodem na novou modelovací hmotu jsi poskočil veliký skod dopředu a ikdyž některé kousky považuješ za "hračky", tak jsou skvěle vysochaný. O to víc se těším na modely určený pro nás, malíře a sběratele (y)
    Great work as always, Borek. I like you work. Keep going...

    Thanks so much Housecarl:)

    Hi Bob, thank you and thank you ;)

    Thanks a lot Ken. And thanks a lot for praise too :).

    Díky Milane, popravdě se na ně taky těším. Už mi ty Toy Soldiers lezly krkem. Je to sice rychleji hotové, ale chybí tam ta výzva a radost, když se to povede opravdu nadstandardně... Dík moc ještě jednou :)

    Thank s so much Oda and Nap. The truth is that it is a higher quality than the classic toy soldiers. I try to give these figures as much as possible. But if you saw them up close, you'd understand what I'm talking about. Improper surface smoothing, shortcuts, not so fine details, simplified procedures (such as fringes or furs), there is simply not enough time for these figures to be made as best as possible. That's why I call him (myself) Toy Soldiers. And actually because it is issued by the company that makes Toy Soldiers :p :cool: . But there are only a few of them left, and then I will finally be doing HQ sculpting, which I am looking forward to :)

    Thanks so much for watching, likes and comments. I'm so glad I'm back!

    Cheers Borek :)
