    No the thanks go to you sir - you always give it 100%. Good to see work being done on a Celtic icon, one of us original ancient Britons.

    Cheers

    This thread has been quite a revelation for me.

    Until now I was under the impression that the act of offering historical advice or suggestions to manufacturers or retailers was forbidden here and any member brazen enough to do so was indeed at risk of having their membership discontinued.

    I'm very encouraged to see that a change in moderation and administration has seen that ridiculous situation restored to a more sensible attitude.....as far as this thread goes at least.
    Hugo's maturity, generosity and genuine consideration of all the suggestions and advice is a very refreshing and positive experience and one rarely seen on this forum for some time.

    I certainly hope that this is a sign of a new attitude on pF and that members will continue to offer historical suggestions and advice in good faith without fear of misguided attacks and that most if not all manufacturers or retailers will also show the same kind of maturity and grace that Hugo has shown when considering that advice.

    P.S......Hugo, My piece of advice is to have another look at the hooves especially the back ones.........and consider the back part of the hooves.
    Also I believe the wheels are a little too modern looking to me.

    Cheers....

    Hi Mark

    Thanks for the comments , it's good to see how members feel and also respond to an idea .

    As far as RP goes Hugo always welcomes ideas , thoughts , reference pictures regarding the hooves , wheels etc or indeed anything else .

    The pictures are very much WIP that's why they were shown ..to get suggestions etc

    Constructive comments are always welcome and appreciated on PF

    Hugo is an exception and a kind of role model for others IMHO. Therefore he is able to deliver what many modellers are after and his kits are selling like hotcakes.
    There is some suspicion that Boudicca and her followers were not happy with the Romans questioning the accuracy of the anatomy of the Britons, their hairstyle, equipment etc. and therefore visited Colchester which held at that time the first model soldier exhibition of the ancient world....a tradition how to handle critical comments which is still evident in some of today`s UK-producers and PF-members.
    So still think twice before commenting, Mark! I am afraid Colchester is just around the corner of your place on this planet :D
    Cheers, Martin.

    Hugo - thanks for developing your projects as a WIP-experience and for taking on board all these interesting informations - best of luck with the success of this piece!

    Did Boudicca resemble some sort of Icenian prop forward or a sorrel-haired version of Olga Kurylenko ? Who knows ?
    I suppose it depends on how many of this piece you want to sell. Whatever you decide ...... I'm in ...... because this one
    looks like an absolute classic !

    Tacitus and Cassius Dio agree that Boudica was of royal descent. Dio describes her as "possessed of greater intelligence than often belongs to women." He also describes her as tall, with tawny hair hanging down to below her waist, a harsh voice and a piercing glare. He notes that she habitually wore a large golden necklace (perhaps a torc), a colourful tunic, and a thick cloak fastened by a brooch [ - Google search!]
    Also claims she was born in 33 AD, and died either 60 or 61 AD. This would make her age to be 27 or 28. Not sure of her daughters ages, but if she married young then it is feasible? Tacitus claims they were violated and Boudicca flogged [the 'spark' for the rebellion], but Cassius Dio doesnt mention this, claiming the revolt started when Catus [the Procurator] and Seneca [buddy of Nero] called in the debts of Prasutagus [Boudicca's husband]

    Hello Mr. Frank...

    Thank you for your comment...

    I my opinion, and this is JUST MY OPINION, its very important have both accuracy and harmony... What we do... We study the character, and then we have to think in the way to join the accuracy and moviment. This is teh worst part... And we lost many time to try to develop this... And I think and believe we are doing a good job.

    Thank you so much.

    Hello Mr. Mark S.

    In first place I want to express my gratitute to your kind words...

    Sir your words pride all RPmodels team. And put in our shoulders a big weight and responsability. Your words should to us, that we have to continue to improve, to better every day, and be better again, and again, and again... RPmodels borned in 08/03/2015, and Ive my own work. Im doing this with a big passion, and I try to develop new concepts, new ideas, new things... I try to pass to all my Team all my passion and my feelings. I love details... And in my job the details are very important and allow us to do the difference... And my teachers always teach me that... So in my professional live I use this concept, and I put the same behaviour in RPmodels... I know we are very small and we have many to grow up to be better... And I dont have any problems in accept that... I already told this in later post of other figure, I dont remember what it was... LOL... LOL... We start to have a good catalog...Small, but good... LOL... LOL... In my office in the wall you have write 'Be better today than yesterdat, be better tomorrow than today.' And this is my standart dilema... This isnt easy... Believe me... But only the strong people can do changes, and I believe we puting our stamp in a new and different concept.

    Thank you Sir for your words... They are very important to us...

    With best regards

    Hugo, I called em Big Dogs because the Native Americans supposedly didn't have a word for horse when the Spanish brought them to the continent. I gots two of them Big Dogs myself and the little dogs, pups, haven't quite figured em out just yet, but they will soon enough.

    From what I'm seeing you are doing an incredible job on the structure, just my humble opinion. I would, however, smooth out the transitions between muscle groups, they appear a bit abrupt from here. Pose changing is always in play, Ruck On!

    Cheers, Ski.

    P.S. Noting your talent and work, there's hardly a doubt about the end result Amigo, just press on and keep up the positive attitude, you can never fail in the end.
