    The Jornada de Túnez (Tunisia's Journey) was undertaken by him Emperor Charles V to retake the cities that had been taken the previous year by the Turkish pirate Barbarossa.
    The combined force was composed of soldiers of the Empire (Spanish, German, Italian) and the Portuguese and the Knights of Malta.
    Some illustrations of the battle:

    He is taking on a nice shape now Diegoff,
    The weapons look good.
    Will you add a little more to the sides of the end of the nose?
    the face shows strength of character.

    Always fascinated by sculpting SBSs and this is a great one. Very realistic proportions and face. Following your progress with interest (and envy).

    The small wrinkles are the result of using myself (with my runner pants on) as a model. :rolleyes::LOL:

    All these very small touches are so very good.
    The angle of his hat on the right side,
    the suggestion of a little bit of a belly for an older man.
    well done.
