    In my busy painting schedule I've found the time to finish this lovely bust from Stormtroopers.

    Cracking job Roger.
    Detail on the Mitre Cap outstanding.
    Any chance of a look see at the detail on the rear.

    Thanks Mick.
    I really enjoyed painting it, still not entirely happy with the motto on the cap but...
    It was also a good excuse to study all the David Morier paintings I have saved on my computer. :)

    Nicely done Roger. Great timing as well because I have just started this one myself; nice to see one painted up. No paint yet; making a new tuft for the mitre cap. It must have been carried away by the carpet monster when I wasn't looking and I did not notice until I began to prep the figure for painting.

    Thank you Michael. I also had a couple of mishaps with the tuft, it was knocked off and glued back on two or three times but I managed to find again. :)
    Looking forward to seeing your version.

    This and all the research material I have looked at has put me in the mood for doing something similar, bust or full figure.

    Thank you Marc.
    Painting that mitre was a steep learning curve for me, however I'm keen to paint another one.
    Do you have a figure in mind?

    Super work....Face looks perfect...but damn if I don't see some touchup needed on that "T'' and "E''............ I think the Mitre looks great and I don't even know what the f....is a Mitre is or where I would find one and is it the same thing as a derby?..............Keep up the good work Roger.
