    Vélites officer, supersculpey firm. I did it last year thanks to a lot of inspiration and advices from experienced members in our figurines club in Nantes. Actually it was my second attempt at sculpting ever, I tried reproduce a subject from magazine Figurines (thumbnail below). I had already the opportunity to get a lot of critics over the last year but as long as they are constructive and help improving they are always welcome.. in other words.. feel free to shoot yours

    Hi Ale

    Nice to see your sculpting , looks good , plume looks full and the eagle looks really good

    If I may I think the medal looks too small for the sculpt

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    Stay safe

    Hi Nap, thanks ! Well just noticed from your other post of the veteran bust that I can clearly rely on you for any reference/advice around medals!

    You show some good potential with the sculpting of this bust, you have tackled the face and details with nice clean results.
    Well done.

    Pretty damn good for a second go at sculpting (y)

    Plume in particular is fantastic (having struggled with them for a long time, what is your technique for making them?)

    Hi Nap!

    This is the French/Italian order of the Iron Crown (Curonne de fer) and it was in reality so small...:

    You have sculpted a very good piece. The face is great, the fur on the bearskin headdress is very well done, as the detail work.
    To think about next time; the Bearskin headdress is a little too short from the eagle plate upwards. The epaulette fringe needs bulking out and the chords on the side of the bearskin do not hang right with the angle of his head, they are defying gravity.
    This really is great work, I look forward to sculpt 3 :)
