    Hi guys,

    some progress pics of my latest (slight) conversion to a Soldiers 90mm knight to represent Ralph, Lord Stafford, based on the Osprey book, The Scottish and Welsh Wars. The main modification was to remove the scalloped edge on the front part of the tunic.

    I picked this figure up from Helm (thanks Steve) at Birmingham Expo back in July. A really crisp sculpt with lots of textural details, but an awful fit of main parts due to overworn moulds. The shield and smaller parts clicked into place, but much work was needed to get the legs, torso and flowing tunic to fit together neatly, then lots of drilling and pinning to strengthen it all up

    I have used this as an experiment in acrylics, as I have only ever used enamels and wanted to try them!

    Still lots to do, especially on the tunic. I will post further pics when I get to do some more!

    Fit issues aside (which I cannot comment upon) the face is superbly painted. I look forward to seeing how you handle yellow as a colour which I find very difficult to paint and look 'right'. Great start!

    Great start!
    Between sculpt and paint, that is a great face... so much expression.

    Look forward to more progress

    Thanks guys - its been a real journey using a different medium! I do like acrylics though - anyone used the retarder to slow them down a bit?
