    In an effort to get my modelling mojo back I have decided to have a go a building and painting this rather lovely figure from CGS miniatures.

    Graham very kindly sent this figure out to me for free along with a larger order, including some replacement part for the D.F. Grieve sculpted Coldstream Guards drummer.

    The figure is sculpted by Maurice Corry and cast by Graham (CGS Miniatures). Graham's casting is superb - no air bubbles found and absolutely minimal clean up was required. The casting blocks were in easy to remove places and any application of filler if solely down to my clumsiness...

    Also in an effort to find a solution to having something to do in the evenings whilst travelling for work, i am attempting to use acrylic paints for the first time... I am using the Games workshop paints as these were the easiest to hand...

    All comments, suggestions, criticisms greatly welcomed and appreciated...

    Your Mojo is back,
    Thank you for the kind words but more so this is looking great.
    May I add this is only the second of this figure I have ever seen with paint on :)
    Please keep posting, it was the first new master I bought for CGS.
    It is a great little figure and I want to see more.
    Best wishes to you
    Following :)
