    For those of you not using Facebook, there is a "Challenge" going around that asks artists to post photos of their figures on Facebook each day for 10 days. (Photos with only limited text.)

    Nap kindly asked that I share my posts related to this challenge on Planet Figure. Many people on the forum may have already seen some of these photos and I apologize in advance for the duplication. I'll post all photos in this single thread as the days progress.

    I was nominated by my friend Angel at Oniria Miniatures for the 10 day Figure Challenge. Thank you very much Angel! :)

    I'll be posting some older figures completed over the last 8 years.

    My challenge started yesterday.

    Thanks for looking.
    Ken

    Excellent work, Ken! The shield on the Roman standard bearer is fantastic and I especially like everything you did with the Travis figure.

    Yeah, it is fun. I did it about two years ago and used a lot of older stuff I had done, too.

    Thanks Nap!

    The figure is an old 54mm IL FEUDO metal kit.
    The original figure carried the shotgun in the crook of his bent right arm and it just looked awkward to
    me. I re-sculpted the right arm with Apoxie Sculpt to be straight and added an old plastic airfix hand from
    my spares box.
    I also replaced the metal sword with a modified Historex sword as the original was broken.

    Cheers,
    Ken
