    Hi All,

    Here's my latest figure. He's a French Officer, Corps of Engineers, during the siege of Yorktown in 1781.

    The head is from Hornet's new 1/32 scale head sets. These are very nice and I believe will be very popular with figure converters. Lets hope Mr. Saunders makes sets with more expressions and nationalities available in the future.

    He's built with Aves Apoxie Putty (white). I will place him in front of a half gabion and a spent solid shot in the foreground. Also, I will add a walking stick or "cane" under his left arm.

    Thanks to Gary for the additional uniform information.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hello Jason,
    I like the figure, he looks aristocratic with a little bit arrogant in his face. ;)
    Cheers

    Hello Jason,
    you know the pictures from Adolph Menzel, he have painted the old prussian army ? All the officers looks in the face and posing aristocratic and arrogant. Beautiful inspirations for figures.

    Jason, EXCELLENT work here! Love seeing him come together. Be sure to keep us posted on his progress. I am a bit dissapointed the perfectly scaled pickle (kosher dill maybe?) lying on the base in the second picture didn't get worked into the over all piece though, maybe next time! :lol: :lol:

    Hi Jason,

    This is a figure that literally attracs a bristle. Amazing job, you make me jealous :eek: . When commercialized, I'm sure he would be a succes, maybe even a classic!
