    Hi All! Here's my current project.

    He's a Hungarian fusilier from the 1790's. I was inspired by the illustration below. There was something about the pose that struck me. I know I had portray that arrogant (for lack of a better term) /smug stance, and in a uniform that befitted his pose. Therefore, I went searching for a uniform that was similiar to the illustration and came up with a Hungarian fusilier from the 1790's. I love the color's of blue and yellow together and the black/yellow piping will give me a challenge. My uniform reference will be Osprey's "Austrian Army of the Napoleonic Wars 1: Infantry" plate 2A.
    The head is from Hornet. Everything else Magic Sculp.
    Thanks for looking!

    The musket is a Shenandoah conversion. Hope the flintlock looks convincing, as it is my first major musket conversion!

    The hand on the musket will be sculpted after the figure is painted and mounted.

    I couldn't believe what a difference it made when you added the mustache. Really brought it home it that point. Fine work, can't wait to see the paint up.

    Jason, I think in the last year your sculpting has become more and more natural looking. I think there was some stiffness to your figures from a year or so ago and now I think you have found a really good balance to your poses especially in regard to the folds in clothing. Your work has always been nice and clean (which still amazes me).

    I also think you are getting to the point where you could sculpt just about any subject which has to be a very liberating state to achieve. That opens a whole vista for oringinality.

    I won't be at MFCA but will you be at Expo?

    Thanks Anders, Leigh and Walt!!!

    Gary, yeah I worked overtime on this project. He took about 12 hours to build. Since most of my projects are done after 9pm, there was a few mornings I found difficult getting up :lol: therefore, I was "dogging" it at work.

    Bob, the more I sculpt the more confident I become and thus taking on other sculpting challenges. I've also become more observent...I constantly study others work of whom I admire and aspire-not only fellow sculptors, but painters past and present, illustraions of R. von Ottenfeld was inspiration for this figure for example.

    As for this subject, yes it was a little liberating. I guess I had to see if could build a figure, using the same amount of attention, that is not in my area of interest and pull it off to my liking.

    Bummer...I won't be at Expo but will be at MFCA :(
