    Thank you David, the ladies heads I’ve used for the scene come from Sol miniatures, available on eBay or direct from their website. I think they are a South Korean company. Agreed though, not easy to get female heads in larger scale, most certainly would be useful aLso with different facial expressions.

    In tidy up and refine mode. Happy with the layout, and added small pins to locate the figures on the chariot to give greater support and longevity for transportation when the build is complete.

    After four attempts to change Queen Boudicca’s face I’m almost happy with where it is. So once I’ve refined each piece I can start the painting process.

    Hi Marcus - stirling work! If I may make one comment regarding Boudicca's open mouth..? Her bottom jaw/chin may need lowering, if the mouth is open - just an observation, not a criticism!!(y)

    Marcus, purely a personal preference but I would lose the feathers from the headdress. A bit too Hollywood for me. That said I am not very knowledgeable on this period.

    Nice modelling skills being shown as usual.

    Lovely composition Marcus, the use of the horn to give extra height works well.

    Hi Marcus

    Glad the lurgy is no more and your back painting ......thought you said you were rusty !....looks good to me

    Nice work on the chariot and that poor Roman ...needs a plaster or two !

    Shield is nice as well

    Of course the ladies are equally as effective

    Looking forward to seeing more

    Happy benchtime

    Wow, you've really done an outstanding job on this. Rusty my behind... :-D
    I like the shields, and little details like the way the daughter is holding the sword.

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement, it was a real motivator to progress the work.

    As I’ve been on annual leave this week, I’ve managed to finish the scene in time, to take to Milton Keynes model show on Sunday.
