    for me it is incredible that you can make such beautiful figures. I just buy them, for know it is good for me. If i reach this level of you, i schall buy no more figures.
    This is a marvelous job.

    Kenneth,

    The poses are so natural and effortless that I'd be tempted to say that you got the 'knack'. (y)

    I cannot see it too well on the pics but are there fringes on the leggings and shirt sleeves?

    Be careful because fringes were rather scarce in that region and period.

    Otherwise

    Q.

    Hi Marc and Quang :lol: Thank you very much for the encouraging comments;I really appreciate it To answer your question,Quang,no,the shirt sleeves do not have any fringes on them.The leggings,however,has a sort of fringe-like design to them,as seen in the painting and from my references(Osprey-Man-At-Arms:American Woodland Indians,and photos and pictures sent to me by Gary to help me in this project.)So sorry for the poor pictures ,I'll try to get better ones for my next update.Thank you once again,guys.Cheers !

    Hey Kenneth!

    Looking GREAT Ken!!! Can't wait to see some paint on them. Are you using acrylics on these as well? If so, please share with us your color choices for the skin tones.

    looking great Ken (y)

    Alan is right on the money, most putties have an "al dente" (soft but firm) working window..

    with milliput, it is the moment that a fingerprint wont show but you can still bend and conform it..

    Thank you very much everyone for your kind comments,I really appreciate them Alan and Gordy,your feedback is always welcome.Thanks! One question for Alan:should I thicken the figures blankets then,since they seem a little thin,or just take it that they couldn't afford thicker stuff ?
    Jason,yes,it'll be acrylics again(I'm trying to get used to the stuff !)for my colours.I hoping to try out some of the great combinations which I just read about in Historical Miniatures magazine(I'm a newbie to the mag-I didn't realise it was that GREAT ) Wish me luck !
    Anders,I'm hoping to do a sort of forced perspective type of groundwork,ala Quang's suggestion to Joe Hudson for his Sherlock Holmes vignette. That's because I intend to make the clock the focus of the whole scene.What do you think ?
    Once again,thanks for all the encouragement,guys.Will post more soon.Cheers !
    Kenneth.

    Hi Alan :lol: Thank you so very much for replying to my question ! To be honest,I thought the thread was already "dead",considering the lack of new postings here. In fact,you got to me just in time,I was just about to start on the flesh areas of the 2 figures Thanks for the tip,Alan;I've already "bulked up" the areas that you'd mentioned and,yes,they do look alot better now.Will start painting the figures later on in the night(doing the clock now) and will post some progress shots soon.Thanks,once again,and cheers !
    Best Regards,
    Kenneth
