    Hi Guys,

    Here are some progress pics after 2 sessions worth of painting. Still a lot to do and the final positioning has yet to be attached, permanently.

    The original Benassi figure has undergone some serious surgery to bring it up to date, with a new head and boots from Steve Readdie, repositioned pick, to improve the balance and filleted to increase the overall height. The left hand was also remodelled, as the original was cast to the post. The original border post was discarded and remade from dowel and plastic card, with bolts from pins. The kit rifle was also chopped, as it appeared way too long and is now a carbine!

    The original base was increased in size with Miliput and will have more tufts and soil added, once complete.

    All painted in acrylics, I hope you like it so far!
