    Shiny. Mostly I'm just shocked you sculpted the whole head :D

    I'm so glad I abandoned photobucket a while back, since they appear to have decided to actively be more useless every week!

    Cheers, Liffy! He's on a very short hiatus as I need to attach him to his plinth before finishing him up. Should be in the next week or so, I imagine.

    Anyway, I've also finished sculpting Abe's head (booyah!):

    Just needs to be thoroughly beaten up and painted, and then Frank's done.

    I've also started on a piece from Elan 13 that I grabbed at Figureworld: a really enjoyable English Civil War sergeant. I've gone with monarchist so that I get to work on my reds again. I used to be pretty good at them, but it's been a long time and I think that shows. Needs more work, even if it's better in the hand.

    Not sure what happened with the photos, either, but they're weirdly grainy. I must have accidentally messed with the settings. Will have to sort that out.

    There's a bit more explanation of the ECW bloke over on my blog.

    Progress on the sergeant:

    I figured out what's up with the pictures: WordPress adds extra compression. Bastards. It doesn't seem to effect my other pictures, though, so I suspect there's something with the colours that is increasing the impact of the compression.

    Anyway, as you can (hopefully) see I've repainted his face, done his boots and worked on his sleeves. The sleeves need to be redone from scratch, but I'm pretty happy with the boots, even if they will end up covered in mud.

    As always, more coverage over on my blog.

    An update! So, the Autopsy has been completed, which you can see on Putty and Paint. I'm not completely happy with the plaque, but I doubt I can do it any better. Also, this piece is really just a bit of fun playing around, so I'm not too bothered.

    In other news, Frank has progressed with Abe's head attached to the base now:

    He's looking pretty good and just about done. Just some extra detritus and dust to finish him off.

    I've also reworked the sleeves on the halberdier, and I'm much happier with him. Hopefully I'll be able to get him done in time for Euro next month.

    As always, much more covered on Fet Paints, including some discussion of my thoughts around basing, which might be of interest.
