    This is the latest release from Campaign Miniatures. It’s a 1/10th scale bust, Victoria Mounted Rifles of the Zulu Wars.

    More historical reference in the link below.

    All parts are supplied in a poly zip bag in a see thru plastic container. There is a foldout colour sheet showing four views of the bust which can be used as a painting guide.

    All parts are cast in light grey resin and there is a small piece of copper wire included which makes up part of the pipe assembly.

    A close inspection of the bust parts show good quality of casting with very minimal clean-up of any seam lines from the casting process. Sculpted detail looks nice and sharp and there is very nice character sculpted into the face. There is a large resin plug that will need to be removed half way down from the bottom of the main torso pedestal support.

    Facial definition in the images below show good level of detail. The top front of the head need a small resin block removed to be able to get a snug fit with the hat. Fitting of the right arm to the torso is an exact fit as shown in the photos; also we can get a closer look at the level of detail that has been sculpted into the individual parts of the bust. The pipe assembly that is held in the right hand is made up of one resin part and a short length of copper wire which can be bent to shape.

    Conclusion:

    This is the second release from this company. The bust shows a good level of detail and clean casting with minimal clean-up of parts, highly recommended. Good luck to Kev Peart with this and any other future releases.

    Availability through El Greco website : www.elgrecominiatures.co.uk

    Cheers

    I'm a little puzzled by how the pipe goes together,I'm sure it's self evident once you have the model however :)

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for your question , the bowl of the pie is in the hand and you have the choice of either using the wire or the cast piece for the stem (you can also drill a tiny locatin hole if you wish)
