    Hi

    I haven’t posted any finished pieces for ages, due to a house move. I’m fully up and running with a new studio now and have now set my photography kit up to.

    I thought I’d post this one first, sculpted by Sergey at Tartar Miniatures, its another great sculpt from him with loads of character. Based on effigies at Bamberg Cathedral in Germany, he wears a very unusual breastplate with retaining chains which could be attached to a weapon and a great helm.

    All in acrylic's, Base from Richard at Oakwood and plate from Name it!

    Cheers

    Neil

    Top work. One of Serey's best busts, loads of personality and you've done it more than justice.
    Good to see a representation of one of my absolute favourite places in Bavaria....... wonder why ?
    Nine breweries, one for every 8,000 people :D
    Anyway back to the model very measured painting that enhances the sculpt.

    The modeling of this bust allows to give character to the face, good job.

    Hi Neil

    Great to see you posting , hope move went okay and you've settled in both to house and studio

    Really nice painting on this love the way you've done the armour and the face oozes character , nice work on the shield

    Don't do much medieval but this is tempting!

    Thanks all for your kind comments.

    Cheers Ken, I thought you meant I was the ‘veteran of many battles’ when I first read it then I realised that would be true also!

    I think this is the closest to living the dream I will get!

    Del & Santi, yeah a great sculpt makes life so much easier, Sergey does some great character pieces. I’ve got one of his Landsknecht busts to do next .

    Hi Kev, move went well, thanks, I’ve painted quite a few pieces since the move but hadn’t photographed anything till last weekend. I’ll post a few more pieces.

    Cheers
