    Great work on the hospitaler Bri,I love the blacks and the pilot is also very nice so far.
    Is the figure a Mike blank sculpt ?

    All three look great but the crusader knight is special. Love the facial expression.

    Hi Brian

    Looking good so far , agree with Tony that facial expression is great ( who makes the knight)

    Looking forward to seeing how the busts progress especially

    Do you find it easy to move between subject and scales?

    Thanks for sharing

    Looking great Brian. The black is beautifully done, I'll be interested to find out the mix.
    For me though the first thing that drew my attention was the fur collar and lining on the WWI airman. As well as being superbly painted it frames the face perfectly.

    Hi Tony
    It's a bust by a fairly new company called LAB 54.I got it from El Greco miniatures in the U.K. He's 1/12th scale and comes as one piece.There is also a booklet you can buy from the same company giving you an sbs how Danilo Cartacci painted him as a templar.
    It's only recently that i've been jumping from one to the other and find it o.k. Less boring for me .

    Yep, that's definitely keeping busy Brian. I'd be hard pushed to pick out a favourite all three look great, maybe the pilot just edges for me though because of the pose and facial expression. (y)

    Hi Brian, always great to see your work. The Mike Blank figure turned out a real treat. Also think the pilot is excellent and as said the blacks on the knight look brilliant.
    Catch up with you soon,

    Excellent faces on all three.
    I particularly like the way you've achieved a natural looking white beard on the knight.

    Cheers,
