    Hi Nap,
    Thanks for looking in mate, long way off the paints yet, but I will get a painted knocked out in the future.
    cheers
    Richie

    Hi D,
    Thanks mate, I've had that hand all over believe me, yes I tried it, in the end because the heads are fixed I needed to line them up looking in the same direction so I went this way, but it may be possible still to do and paint in the eyes at a different direction.
    cheers

    There is an area on the sleeve that wants fleshing out a bit, where deltoid is.

    Hi D,
    Thanks mate(y) I actually adjusted this about an hour ago, but letting it dry out and then I will have a second look tomorrow to see what still needs refining. I need to do the forearm a touch also. Thanks again mate for helping out and keeping an eye on me.
    cheers

    I've been quietly following the developement of this duo, and I thought the older chap looked a little familiar. I glanced up at our array of family photos on the wall.........there he was; my great-grandfather, Evan Rowlands ! Amazing and wonderful sculpt.

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you, the change of arm position is a big improvement.

    Hi Mark,
    Mate thanks for the initial kick about changing the interaction between the two figures, it has had a huge effect to the overall look.(y)

    Hi Alan,
    I hope I'm not getting sued for copyright infringement by your family:eek:. Thanks for looking mate.

    cheers

    Hi Alan,
    Were your cousin serving during the Zulu war???? If they were I have the Noble 24th which list all the known members of the regiment and if you give me their names I could see what information is in the book.
    cheers

    It's what I've been trying to look up, at Brecon and elsewhere. My missus and I are attempting to do family searches through usual channels[ been quite successful!] but going "sideways" as it were, with more distant connections. Difficult,when one is not as conversant with Welsh as one would like.
    We are looking at Rowland or Rowlands, Evans, Edwards ,and Williams[ loads of them, I know!].
    Many thanks for your offer of help, Richie, much appreciated; but don't knock yourself out on my account, bud.;):)

    Cheers, Alan

    Hi Alan,
    Any first names????? It's no bother mate honestly, it's something I enjoy doing. Just searching for Evans, Edwards & Williams would be like trying to find a tear in a bucket of water.
    cheers

    Hi, Richie,
    Yes , tell me about it! Looking through the census lists is bad enough, checking who was where at a certain time.........
    They had very common first names at that time; John, David, Evan , mostly around the Cardiganshire areas of Aberaeron, Tregaron, Lampeter, and up to Aberystwyth.
    It's a family joke that the Edwards' and Rowlands' were the biggest breeders in Cardiganshire.:rolleyes:

    Cheers, Alan

    Hello mate,
    Thank you, I promise I have adjusted the shoulder;). I can sense you watching that is why I'm taking it steady on Steady Lad. Thank you so much Jose for giving me the opportunity to complete this, I have always liked this ever since your initial concept and in the end I hope I do you proud.(y)

    Hi All,
    Well after sitting around for the last 4 weeks unmotivated I finally got a jump start and this is just about complete and finished. I must say it was a real pleasure working on this and I must say a massive thank you again to Jose Hidalgo of Beneito Miniatures. Mate I hope I have done you proud(y). Also a big thanks to Steve Readdie and Gordon.(y) Last but not least a big thank you to the lads in Oz - Mark & Tony for suggesting the final interaction between the two figure...top job lads and thanks for the input, I'm very happy with the outcome(y).
