    I will probably be remoulding this soon, but if the negativity shown by johan and the ever present critique fr old grumbler has the same effect as with the rha officer then it wont be worth it.

    Thanks to everybody that loves the piece. I changed the right arm as the figure looked unbalanced and wrong

    Great figure Stu, I think another mould is in order. Lovely painting by Dave, welcome to the big league of 120mms :LOL:

    Stu, Johan just made a critique, that's all, a valid critique, I happen to agree, millions may disagree so don''t resort to throwing the toys out of the pram. If you're that sensitive pack it in and go live in a monastery.

    Hi David; Was very excited to see your take on this figure. I picked up a copy in Chicago and as coincidence would have it, I just put the finishing touches to the tartan about an hour ago. So I'm most grateful for your interpretation as I will definitely use this post as a guide for the rest of the way. Thanks for the battle honours info. and for doing such a fantastic job.

    Hi David ,

    Lovely work on this , not a figure modeller (Busts ..Ra ra ra(y)) but I can fully appreciate the massive amount of work that you have done ..great result especially on the mass of yellow on the colour itself.

    Any chance of some close ups of the figure ?

    Moz has done a really nice job sculpting IMO ..so hats off to both of you .

    Amongst all the positives, we have just two negatives, again from Pinky and Perky, so on that basis it must be a nice figure well received by the majority. Everyone is entitled to their honest opinion, but going by previous comments these two seem to have their so called opinions joined at the hip, and now come across to me more like a vendetta against someone they obviously have an issue with. Just an honest opinion. Personally I like the figure, and I liked the Crimean RHA figure as well. The answer is simple, if you don't like it, then don't buy it.

    Absolutely ......But there seems to be an agenda from at least one of these commentators to be as critical as possible of a certain sculptor at every opportunity and then revel in the furore that it seems to cause ,which was my initial point! It's also a bit of a shame that what starts out as a thread on someone's undoubted painting achievements always seem to be Hijacked and turned around to a constant drip drip drip of uncalled for criticism but as I was once told opinions are like arseholes, everybody has one.Sorry , I didn't really want to give either the oxygen of a response as this will undoubtedly result in more sarcasm and fake wounded innocence and an opportunity for them to hammer home their dubious points in the same superior and sarcastic manner... it just seems to me to turn a friendly and otherwise informative web site into something a little more distasteful..... Which is a shame .....In anticipation of being called over sensitive and invited to join a monastery this will be my last post on this

    Dont worry Funky they have just done it again over on Sculpts with a new figure by Moz 120mm Zouave. I was able to show Moz the error of his ways and advize him always to check with this pair before he sculpts anything. To save them having to always point out where Moz is going wrong.
    This time it was the way a chap wore his cape, obviously wrong because its not the same as a metal models kit. They both mentioned this so metal models must be correct in everything and everyone else should copy them?????????????

    Hi Funky,
    don´t be so angry about these guys! In Germany we have a good word for such beancounters:
    "What bothers the German oak, when the wild sow scrubs on it":D I know these kind from the airplanemodeling scene, it´s always the same bullsh...! Talking for talking's sake(n)

    Yours Thomas
