This is one my latest projects. It is a bust of a Colonel in the General Kornilov Shock Division during the Russian Civil War and is sculpted by Roy Hunt. Roy kindly cast one off for me. If memory serves me right Roy sculpted it about 4 - 5 years ago. It's superb. It is based on an illustration from the Osprey book on the White armies of the Russian Civil War.

Cool, I figured that if I ever got back into figure painting then the larger ones would be the way to go

There are some great 200mm figures out there. If you find anything by John Rosengrant get them as he is an excellent sculptor. He has even won an oscar for his work on Terminator!!!
