    Hi all! Here's what I've been working on lately. It's the basework for Castles Partners Landsknecht vignette.
    Both figures are completely painted except for the hands (I hate painting hands). Next week I'll post a finished piece and a wee article on the pleasures and trials and tribulation of painting the pair.

    Base is a cracking bit of work in oak and black footing from Pete Watson.
    Much of groundwork, cape, cap and sword is cast onto the supplied base, I'll comment on this.
    Everything else including the German drinking horn built up with putty and a variety of tufts, moss etc.
    Cheers

    That's a superb looking base you've completed Derek.
    I look forward to seeing 'The Partners' appear on it.

    Cheers,

    I love seeing the groundwork more than the figures at times, especially when done this well, nice job Derek.

    Working on this pair myself at the moment - challenging to say the least, aren't they ? I guess
    you 'buried' the supplied base in the groundwork. Clever stuff, Del ......looks damn good ( I had
    an idiotic touch of visual dyslexia for the briefest of moments when I thought the drinking horn
    was a dismembered leg. Must be losing the marbles........should have gone to Specsavers.......eh?).
    Looking forward to seeing everything finished and in place.
