    Hi all I thought you might like to see some WIP shots of the Mississippi Inf Bust from us at jTFB Miniatures. This is going to be the box art for the bust from the capable hands of our good friend Ernesto Reyes hope you like it more to follow.

    Thank you Simon yes it’s a very interesting laying of colours. Ernesto really does a fantastic job. Greg Girault did a fantastic job on the sculpting. It’s going to look good when finished.

    Wow, that is great. I would be too nervous to try to replicate this, mine would probably look more clown like. I take it that the medium is acrylic?
    Congratulations

    Hi everyone thank you for the kind comments, we can’t wait to see it finished too he’s doing a fantastic job.

    Melanie, I’m sure you would do a great job on him, nothing ventured nothing gained. Yes it’s Acrylic paints. I think he just changed up the way he lays down the base coats. Well what ever it worked.

    There's a lot of character in that face and Ernesto has captured it perfectly.

    Hi Malc yes it blew up very well from the 75mm design. We had to make him a bust as it just cried out for it. The fact that it’s such an interesting uniform study and a great face just made it worth while.
