    Brief History of The Regiment & Painting Instructions.

    Having already done the V Bust I picked up some tips.

    So will start to clean off the casting blocks and make a start. Just got to mount the Kettle Drummer first.

    Feel free to chip in with any advice.

    Likewise Base coats blocked out, work on the girdle and finish that then add the arms.

    Any comments please feel free.

    Well done Mick, the head and torso look great in their base coat.
    I have the same style holder from Rolston, although I replaced the handle with a wooden egg cup. It's now free standing.

    Thanks Bob
    I cant get on with the handle one some times I need two hands to steady the brush. The top one with the two ball sockets is ideal as the fig / bust can be rotated into any position and the weight of the base stops it falling over.

    Greetings.
    Well this one got a little lost for a while but at last finished.
    This completes the four cavalry Full Busts of the series.

    Thank you Keith. Great minds think alike. I have to say it is my favorite so far. But the Hussar was great to paint.
    I wanted to do the Lancer but I wanted him a little different from the norm of stabbing at folk with long pointy poles.
    Just wait till you see the Irish Guard.
    Thanks
