The figures are 1/32 scale and cast in light grey resin and sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi, box art is by Alex Long.

    Working away on these two, happy(ish) with the upper uniforms, not so much with the trousers / jodhpurs so think they will be repainted in oils to get better blending. Spent some time on the flesh areas last night as well so they are coming along nicely.

    Following a post elsewhere on here and a link to a video on the IWM site, it appears that the king on his visit to France wore khaki jodhpurs, so it was back out with the oils to create a khaki shade. The boots have also been painted, only a couple of hours work - how, I don’t know

    Nice change! I think the change in the King's trousers makes the figures look a bit different and creates visual interest. And you can say it's totally realistic ;)

    Hi Steve

    Coming along with these , the change of colour on HM adds interest

    If I may comment .....Might be pics but have a look at the generals right boot at back , does it need filling to the back seam ?

    Presume your adding the rest of the strap for bino's on HM

    All credit to you for working in this scale , interesting figures

    Happy benchtime
