Oooooooo.....I'm ready to see the box art, I am. I can't hold my breath much longer.
A terrific project, and a great team to be part of !
Knowing your determination, Offo's skill, and Ian's eye for quality control, this will be a success for you all I am sure.
Ian will have to have a panoramic table display next year !
Best wishes to you all.
Thanks for looking in.,
Im sure rhey will be worth holding your breath for.
Thank you Paul.
As you know I was dropping hints all over the place last year at Euro, So talking to Mrs B she gave the green light.
I contacted Ian to pick his Brains end result We have a cunning Plan. As some of them will be of actual people Offo was the man.
Plus some with a little bit of work will be able to be converted to almost any regiment of the day.
Thanks again mate
Well come on we are all waiting in anticipation of these ..nice one mate
How about a piccy of the reference Offo is working from ..just a little teaser !
Thats a tad hard mate,
I have given Offo a number of pics for the pose all unrelated to the actual bust,
along with a number of pics for the uniform, kit & weapons etc. so the best I can do is this
As my old dad used to say it all comes to those who wait. Plus you cant rush a good craftsman so we will all have to see what the master produces.
I hope this helps
After being like a little boy standing outside a closed sweetie shop waiting for it to open.
I am pleased to announce that I received a message from the Master Offo
stating that he has started on Mick's Mick's No1. Sgt 6th Inniskilling Dragoon. 1901.
I will update as and when I have more info.
great news mate looking forward to seeing it myself LOL. I know it will be a very special piece mate.
Congrats Mick!! These are good news for all us!!
Thank you Juan,
Yes it seems a very long time but it 's all coming together.
You might be waiting looking longingly at the sweetie shop window...but there is a line right behind you !
I thought they were Japanese tourists,
Ah so you so velly velly long !
Plenty of goodies hopefully!
I think you will find there is something for every one even found an Ashanti star for you
Good luck with this. Looking forward to seeing the Irish Guard!
Thank you for your good wishes.
I sent the Irish Guard of this morning for proof reading.
It entitled ' The Birth of a Regiment.'
I'm sure you will like it.
Thanks again Mick
I have just received some WIP pictures from Offo to say I am pleased with the work so far is an understatement.
When I was looking through them, I was like a dog with two dicks in a street full of lamp posts.
Well pleased all being well the finished bust will be ready end of next week.
Mick, can show us the WIP pics?
At the moment its still Offo's work so it wouldn't be fair for
me to post his work. Just a few more days.
Rest assured when I can post I will.
H have to say from the picks I have had the privilege of seeing you guys will not be disappointed. as Mick says it's up to Offo to post them at the moment but a few more days and you will see it in all it's glory.
