    Thanks guys.
    Andreas, most of the braid was done from one single length of rolled out putty.It was laid in and twisted and curled to shape with a lot of patience and.................swearing!!!:):)

    Hi Stephen ,
    Great subject , the braiding is something else ..amazing , great facial details .
    I am not 100% sure on the right arm , the way it seems to stick out , possibly done to allow the side braid to be seen ,...not that this would really stop me from considering buying this ., just my personal opinion.
    Rely would like to see the box art on this as well , Michael Miniatures have produced a great range of wonderul busts , all individual subjects which add to a collection or even the gray army!!!

    Great sculpting Steve, yes the braids must have created much hand wringing,
    the face will also be a challenge to paint as it is mostly flatish. Will follow this with much interest.(y)
