    Anything sculpted by Offo has to be great and Mick's Mick's have hit the nail on the head with this one, a real beauty.
    I have added to the moustache and brought it away from the face. Just the face has been done so far, in oil's.

    You are off to a good start Bob. Extending the moustache is a nice touch. I am readying mine for priming, so I will be following your progress with great interest.

    An update, I have now attached the sword to the figure and will have to tidy up on the arms where it was glued on. I am pleased that the ring fitted when all was located.
    More work on the lace to do. IMG_20210725_140829234-02.jpeg
