    Thanks, guys!
    The miniature has been sculpted by Eduard Pérez. It's not a commercial release, as it is a miniature casted privately by him. There are really few of them around and he just told me this one is the very first to be ever painted ;)

    Thanks guys!
    I believe the face has a Norman Rockwell touch. What do you think?

    That some very nice paintwork Fernando!
    The freckles accentuate his boy-ness well.

    Excellent sculpt by the way. I think it would be quite popular if released...

    Cheers,
