    Three cavalry figures finished at last! They are in 1/72nd scale = 23mm. I have included an image with a cm/mm ruler for size. All comments welcome, before I get the brushes out.

    Costas, sculpting in this scale involves lots of work with a lens, so 1 hour sessions before eye strain sets in! I hope I can paint them:rolleyes:

    Get out of here!

    1/72 scale, what are you doing to me! I can't even roll two balls of milliput the same size. How can you do such great work in such a small scale.

    Remind me not to look at your work anymore, as I may give up modelling.

    Well done :)

    Steve, thank you for your comments. They were made for a magazine article for the UK. I have worked commercially in this scale before, but with modern subjects. I'm not sure a company would think this period/scale was commercial.

    Paul, thank you for your comments. I enjoy working in this scale, though these are my first mounted figures. It does help to be working on another piece in a larger scale at the same time, as you can only do a little at a time.

    Ulrich, thank you for your comments. The sculpting time is less than for a 54mm figure, but as they are so small you can only do a little at a time, or you mess up an area you have worked on!

    Amazing work, incredible detail on such small figures, horses and figures look great, well proportioned and really well posed.

    Maurice, thank you for your comments, I used an old BMSS guide to horse movement as a starting point for the poses.

    As always, Robert, marvelous! Your gift for sculpting in this itty-bitty scale is outstanding! I think you ought to try these on the commercial market. :)

    All the best,

    Yes, it's great. The turban and the hair of the horses have such a fine structure!

    Dan, Chris and Lennart, thank you for your comments.

    Dan in the past, when I did some commercial sculpting, I produced afew 1/76 AFV crews and 1/72 pilots, amongst other things in larger scales, most unavailable now! At the moment I like producing what I want to do, rather than what someone else want's me to sculpt. Though I must admit I did get great pleasure seeing other people's interpretaions of my figures, who knows:confused:
    I have huge admiration for the commercial sculptors working today, the quality is excellent overall.

    Paul thank you for your comments. I hope to have these done for Euro, will you be going?

    I see green stuff follows your supreme will quite well :)

    Excellent and delicate work. Horses are excellent, too. In the views without the ruler I would have guessed the scale to be around 35mm and up. These really should be painted.

    I do a bit of work on 30mm upwards and yes you can only do very little and I get distracted easily...
