    Hi folks,

    I am looking for this figure. I have some very good gray army pieces to trade or I can buy it if you like or a bit of both. Let me know,

    Thanks

    Much appreciated Steve! That links explains much (darn it :arghh: ). It was indeed a beautiful piece and I garnered some nice compliments on the 40mm version that I painted. Just would LOVE to have it in 75 or 90mm.

    Thanks again!

    Me too Kevin. It would've been terrific in a larger scale.

    40mm would normally be too small for me, but I was so taken with it when I saw it last year at Euro, I just had to have it.

    Steve,
    I looked at the various figures that Guy Herrick painted in his V-bench and stole unashamedly the various things I liked like horse colors, bead work etc and my 40mm is in my V-bench. It is one of my absolute favorites. So, SERGEY....if you happen to read this.....LOL....a couple of us would sure love to see you do that one again!!!

    Sergey had just sent the master to Seil when he heard they were folding (from me). I have encouraged Sergey to do another similar piece.

    Now THAT is one time when getting an item back, marked "return to sender" would have been ok! I imagine he has enough other projects that doing that one again would be boring (been there, done that) and on the back burner because of other projects.

    Kevin, I had a look at your version of the Thunderbird kit and it's sweet. Nice job my friend!

    Seil figures I always thought were a very mixed bag. They put out some absolute turkeys like those Celts, Tom Cruise in red armour, Kevin Costner being shot on his horse, the Teutonic Knight, The King & I dancers (what were they thinking with that?!!), a Roman signifier with a massively out-of-scale signum. But when they were good they were superb (think their Vikings, Landsknechts, woodland Indian and a few others) and this one would have been a real feather in their cap I think. Such a pity it never saw the light of day as a commercial piece.

    Hi Kevin, I have the 'Authorsculpt' 75 mm mounted mountain man. Quite similar to the one you were after. I doubt I will do it so, if your interested, drop me a PM
