    My next attempt at painting will be the superb bust by Rob Lane of Lord Flashheart (scale 1/10).

    For anyone not acquainted with the character from the 'Blackadder' TV sitcom, this is what he looks like.

    The bust was announced HERE on PF, and looks like this:

    At first, I was all set to prime and paint, but then, looking at the screenshot, I noticed the missing lanyard.
    Out came the bits of copper wire which ended up looking like this:-

    I twisted some fine wire over the two lines to give a decent purchase for Magicsculp forming the two sliders. Then drilled a couple of holes to locate the ends of the lines.

    This was the final result:-

    He's now primed and ready for the 'daubing'.

    Thanks for looking Bob.
    This one's going to be fun, but will take a while, since I'll have to work around the installed fittings.

    Cheers,

    We'll see about the 'cracking' job Jim .... Edward has set a high bar with his boxart.
    Look forward to seeing yours eventually (?) with sprouting appendages. Legs akimbo springs to mind.

    I've made a start on the face, but it'll be a while before anything's fit for risking the camera lens.
    Thought I'd give the tunic a first coat, but found that my Humbrol 26 was dry.
    I therefore tried a mix of Ochre (83), Black, Brown (186) and Green (102). The photo shows it much lighter than it is.
    The coat is a similar first experiment, being a mix of Leather (62), Orange (45) and some Red (60).
    Once it's fully dried I'll see how it reacts to some coating with oils and sponging.
