This is my entry for the JMD sculpting contest 2008. An initiative from JMD miniatures ( France ) They produced a naked bust that has to be used in there contest as base to create a new one . It has to be origial and not commercial available . All information is available at http://www.jmd-miniatures.com/concours.php I can not paint the miniature because no paint is alowed on the entries . The materials used are : tamyia putty ( the green one/slow drying type) : for the first time I used this medium to replace the ( hard to get ) green stuff . lead foil : for the leather straps brown stuff : for some details ( buttons ) and the pipe Below a step by step how I did it : the start , the naked bust : I removed some musscle structures and sanded down the shoulders . The first layers to create the uniform and the blanket . The cap finished with the feather ( seen in an Men at Arms publication) The hair and beard finished . The pipe is made from copper wire and some brown stuff .
