    Well , since sculpting is now part of my life , i really have to be serious about it, or iat least to try !!!! .

    This is the new figure of PF member Babis Stathis aka "aiantas ". Its a Greek Kleftarmatolos from 1821 rebellion against the turks.

    So this is the master of the original kit, and thats the way it is released from Athens Miniatures , in shops (started on 19 of May to be released). I have indicated all the points i converted so you can watch more easier

    As i had an evaluation copy , 2 weeks earlier , i thought that it would be pretty nice to perform a convertion, to give some more movement and action to the figure.

    So you have just seen the points i touched on the indicated picture. See the finished product.

    Good morning koumpare... Indeed this piece was really beautiful when I first saw it on pictures, but seeing it live and close looks even more better. Congratulations for the medals you won Costa. Well deserved.

    Hi Costas,

    a superb work!!! Wow!!! The figurine looks great. I like suche figurines which represents not the common stuff, but an important part of a nations history.

    As a Bavarian, I always had a special love to the Greec History. About 30 km from my hometown there is a column in honour of Otto King of Greec, a Bavarian.

    By the way, Markus Eckmann and Jürgen Nirschl, members of our German figurine club "Artist & Fgurine" haf participatet in your show in Athen.

    They are delighted!!! Markus told me over an hour how great was the show and how friendly the German painters are wellcomed!

    Thank you very much for your hospitality!

    Many greetings from Bavaria
