    Evening everyone after a bit of a mojo collapse and a brief dalliance with 'proper' aeroplanes (those with more than one wing) I was perked up by Nap and the general level of enthusiam shown by visitors and traders at the recent Yeovil model show :D

    After getting bogged down with a couple of busts I decided to pick something nice and simple (!) and this one from right at the bottom of the grey army in called to me. It is of course an all time classic produced by Poste Militaire of a 16 Century Muscovite Rindi. Originally sculpted by Mike Good (I think) and cast in white metal for that 'traditional model figure feel'. My copy had some bad pitting and needed a fair bit of polishing and smoothing with putty before I could slap on the primer. Despite this I was able to wrap the whole thing up in just under a week of spare time; the paint just seemed to flow along . . .:happy:

    I remembered a certain gentleman from Sweden had done a rather nice version of this figure with a white (rather than the instructed red) coat and of course I couldn't resist a smattering of snow on the frozen ground to round it off ;)
    (I even remembered to take a couple of in progress shots along the way)

    Painting was in acrylics as usual with another of Richard's (Oakwood) bases and it's good to go in the cabinet.

    Next up something from a slightly warmer climate . . . .
    Cheers
    Paul

    Great work with the white tones, especially the fur cap. This classic, by Mike good. The catalogue reference give us a clue: MG1. The original base had a carpet piece on the floor.

    Great painting my friend! :) Being real monochrome figure with very few details, it is all about the painting, and that´s what 'I love about this figure.
    And being a Mike Good sculpture the sculpting quality is indeed the very best.

    It's a bugger when the old mojo takes a nosedive, but nice when it comes back. I've given up fretting about it and just enjoy it when it's around and do all the mundane stuff at other times.
    Look forward to catching up again at BC (y)
