    Hi Mike,
    I have always admired this bronze version. I actually have a Saving the Colour project file, so it's been in my thoughts for a while.
    cheers

    Hi All,
    Here are the initial drafts of Corporal Shiess, this is certainly not the final cut, the facial expression will change as he will be depicted in combat against the Zulu. I would like to hear your opinions please personally I think it is:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:. Remember this will end up being a 120mm scale head.
    cheers

    Cracking likeness, I think it could do with being a touch broader in the forehead.(y)

    Hi Carl,
    Thanks mate I will feed that back, it still has to be proportioned before the facial expression is changed. I agree superb likeness of Dickie Owen in Zulu.

    Hi Kev,
    Thanks you. I am certainly using 3d for the heads and why not when you can get a likeness like that.

    The question that arises is whether the figures as new or re-releases should be modelled on the film characters or as the real individuals, especially since there is photographic evidence of the latter. The original Mike French range was of the former rather than the latter.

    Hi Richie

    I think you should do the lot plus one or two Zulus and not for getting Cetewayo.

    It would be good to see busts of the actual personalities and full 120mm film characters.

    Hi Malc,
    I would love to do the lot, if the new ones go OK then I certainly will add a couple more maybe. There will be Zulu's coming along and I have some particular ideas for real personalities.
    cheers

    Hi Nap,
    The bust side of it will be in the distance as I have about 10 other projects lined up first and some are more substantial than others.
    cheers
