    Below are some smudgy snaps of a project I completed this year. It is a 1/12 bust of an NCO of the Grenadier Guards in the Crimea. He is sculpted in Sculpy additions in Magic Sculp, Duro, plastic card and wire. The painted version is by Steve Walker.

    The bust is now available from Elan 13 Miniatures, via El Greco.

    Superb Robert. I saw this on the El Greco website last night and wondered when we'd see it onpF. Thanks for answering my question. Beautifully sculpted and painted.

    Hi Rob, I remember seeing this in the early stages at Figureworld in July, can't believe it was it only 4 months ago? Excellent sculpting and all the best wishes in your new venture. I'm sure it will do well. (y)

    Very nice Rob, the tunic reds and leathers are great, the reds in the skin tone a little over for my eye, but superb overall.(y)
