    That's is very detailed as always with Legion

    That weapon and the Apostles look good as well

    Certainly very much of the period

    Thanks for sharing

    For me, half-figures inhabit a murky no-man's-land between busts and full figures.

    They're neither one thing nor the other, and somehow look incomplete. As if the sculptor just gave up part way through.

    Which means that a half-figure has to be something truly exceptional to tempt me. And THIS is truly exceptional.

    Definitely on my radar. (y)

    Excellent, not a period that I would have an interest in but because of the quality of the sculpt I am getting the I want feeling, I must say that legion seem to be giving us fairly regular releases, keep it up especially if they are going to be of this standard.

    This is a superbly sculpted figure, and a nice and unusual subject, beautifully executed.
    But at the risk of making myself unpopular again ( the last time was about trumpets ! ) the musket is really too small. This figure is from the late 1500s/early 1600s, I presume from his clothing. There were two sorts of firearms used at that period.
    The older was the caliver, bore around 0.5 or 0.6", developed from the earlier arquebus. Calivers were relatively light weapons ,which were used without the musket rest. and normally loaded from a flask and bullet bag. Barrel length varied, but seem mostly to have been around a metre.
    The musket, however appeared from the 1560s, and was a much heavier and longer weapon altogether, designed to bring down heavily armoured horsemen at a distance. Bore was around 0.8 " ( later settling at around 0.75", which was standard for the next century or so), and the barrel was at least 48" long .... that's 1.22 metres.
    That was a handful to control, and the forked musket rest was invented, essential for steady aim. They were also normally loaded from charge bottles on a bandoleer, as shown on this figure.
    So if he's a musketeer,as it appears he is, with a musket rest and a bandoleer, he needs a larger weapon with a longer barrel.
    Sorry to be a pedant...
