I have made a start by block undercoating the bust.
Further coats of acrylics and inks will follow
to build the colour, shadows and highlights.

I've started a sculpt of a US Marine 1/16th scale from about 1776-1778. I'm doing it for my grandson's desk. He's Sgt. in the corps. Will post when it looks more like a figure and not the plastic from an old HP printer.

I'm going with a 54mm Squadron figure I picked up at a convention. I'm painting a lot of wargame minis and this gives me a nice break.

@Lakota

That one with the shotgun looks more Vietnam era but ether way cant beat the price on those figs. nice find.

While I'm not going to be working on this for the campaign i thought i'd post a recent acquisition, as I think she would qualify for Standing Boldly or at the very least Standing Coldly

Howdy Y'all
I'll be building one of these for the campaign, might do both if I have time. I'm leaning to the WW II figure. I bought these at a swap meet, there was only one figure in the WW II box so I picked it up for a song.


Of course the Vietnam War figure doesn't look bad either. I hope the green stuff is paint and not mold-we'll find out.

Take care,
Don "Lakota"

we could make this an all Miniart campaign. I have their English Knight. But with all these armored figures someone should do something Napoleonic.
Looking through the stash.

@Neill looks like a good start.
I'm still waiting on my Knight to be delivered. did it as a special order through Squadron and it says 2-3 weeks for special orders. hopefully it gets here soon

in the Beginning . . . aluminum wire for the Armature. Thinking 1/9 to make it stand out, but not be overly large.

Will have to change my build. I opened the kit box and discovered that the figure had been started. Have a white metal medieval knight or I'll do Dragons S.F. Vietnam at the S.F. camp A Sau which was over run in 66. Or some thing else, you know how it goes.

the idea for an original sculpt figures. 1/16-1/9 . . . thinking (eyes just don't handle the 54mm or smaller as well) have not decided era or clothing/gear yet.

Burnt and battered down an oaken door, with a child's doll lying in the threshold, bloodied, and beaten Figure defending . . . Blooded, but Unbowed!

Signed up and will get pic's up soon I hope. Will do Miniarts 1/16th
Spartan Hoplite figure. I know about the fit problems with the arms and legs from my first attempted to build one but, am confident that Mister Surfacer will do the trick. Trying to finish up repairs and what is on the bench and will start him shortly.
