I still have a bit of painting to do on this guy and to add the right arm which is holding a sword. The figure is to be released as a resin kit at the up and coming QMHE Show on the 7th and 8th of September 2013 Brisbane Australia.

    I have edited the photos and added the finished model.Hope you like him.
    Regards,John

    Hi John,
    Lovely work, can't wait to see this piece finished and mounted. Nice to see some 1860's Commando's from New Zealand.

    What a smashing figure and very well painted, I salute you Sir.

    BTW do you know if there are any plans to add privates this range that could be slightly adapted to depict British troops? My reason for asking is I had a Great, Great Grandfather serving in the 57th Reg't out in New Zealand from 1860 until their return to Liverpool in 1867.
