    Just finished this excellent little vignette this afternoon, in fact the musket is still drying so that I can handle it to glue it in place. After years of trying to take even passable photos, I took these pictures using my iphone and making use of the under cabinet lighting in our kitchen. (hence the tile back splash as a back drop) I was quite pleased and hope they will give you a better idea of what the figure looks like. Painted in oils over acrylic under coat.

    To the untrained eye (my own), your piece is as good as, if not better than the seller's display piece. Well done.

    Hi Glenn

    If I did " legs" this would be one piece I woukd choose , the whole concept is great

    As for your version ......what's not to like ...as Carl says very very nice ......that scarecrow has so much character ..love the waistcoat

    Why not enter it or something into FOTM and the Vignette & Diorama comp

    Thanks for sharing

    Wonderful!This pair from Alexandros is the "Figure of the year" for me,and for many others,I think.It will be my next project...….
    There was a Union soldier,firing behind a scarecrow,many moons ago.The Company was Ravenswood,I think.What happened to these figures?Callico Jack,The flying Dutchman....etc.

    Thank you kindly everyone. This should quite rightly be figure of the year and I hope that one day soon, there will be lots of examples on show tables everywhere.
