G'day Everyone,
While my workshop is down, I have been playing with a few ideas. And below is one of them.
Sculpted by Phil Walden in 1/10th, it depicts an Australian Light Horsemen Palestine in 1917.
Now I know what some of you are thinking, not another Light Horseman. But this one is correct in just about every way. And the simple fact that I was in a Light Horse Regiment in the Army just added to the appeal for me.
The picture (poor pic, sorry) is of one of the test casts, and once I paint one up, the figure should be available when my workshop gets up and going again and reopens.
You can see from the photo that I have not cleaned any of the parts. This shows how small the casting blocks are. It will retail for $52AUD.
Any comments or quires will be appreciated.

Regards Jason Miller

Looks good, mate. Now that your production is slowed down due to that big car crash / garage accident and losing your Alps printer, are you thinking about more figure sets? Some modern Aussies, perhaps?

Anyway, hope Arms Corps will return to business in full capacity soon.

Cheers,
Mario

Thanks Al.
Little update. Still have the hat and eyes to finish.
I'm trying to get the hot and very dusty look.

Cheers Jason
