    Hello,

    here another bust I have done in the last weeks.
    It is the beautiful Polish Uhlan bust (WWI). Produced by Black Army Models.

    Fantastic painting, Ben - that face looks extraordinarily lifelike.
    The re-enactor photos you’ve added give it another dimension of authenticity.

    Nice job Ben. The crimson really adds something to this uniform and makes it pop. Always liked the full figure of a Legion trooper resting on a fence post(JMD?) and keep looking out for one but not been that lucky so far.

    thanks Chris, The color for the uniform was very difficult. The re-enact shows more grey but the other pics more blue-grey

    excellent work on this.
    I have also done the JMD figure, and this one from you is a example of your skills.

    Nice looking bust, as others said, the odd splash of colour lifts it (amazing to think that anyone entered WW1 in such gear).

    Hi Ben

    Another lovely piece of painting , reckon you have got the uniform colour spot on ...certainly there must have been variations in those worn

    Like the red..nice colour splash there ...the headwear has cone out particularly well ...and you've some great references as well ...saved them for my version ( currently keeping others company in the GA!!)

    Why not put something into FOTM as well as voting in previous months

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime
