    Several years ago I sold the first version I did of the old Poste Militaire Mandan Chief to a collector. After watching ebay for a long time one came up for sale and I was able to get this second copy.

    The flesh is painted in tube oils and all the rest is in enamels, both Floquil and Humbrol.

    The base is by Ken Thomas

    You are on fire! Nice work Guy! I'm with Roc on this one, these J.R. Lamb busts from Poste Militaire were some of the best pieces ever offered IMHO.

    Great work on a classic bust Guy.

    Haven't seen this one for a long time.

    The pics with the blue background certainly make it easier to see all the good work you've done of this one.

    Hello Guy

    Fantastic work my friend.I especially liked warpaint and top hat effects.
    The busts from Poste Militaire are the best.

    Warm regards

    Thanks Tony & Mario. I appreciate the feedback. You have to go a long way to beat the Poste Militaire Indian busts.

    Guy,
    Just beautiful work and stands out nicely. You should do an SBS on how to do the war paint on skin.
    Cheers
