One of my latest finished pieces. It is by ScaleLink and while it is quite old it still stands up well.



All comments welcome.

Ross, this is pretty good especially as the ScaleLink figures aren't intended to be used as single pieces, more as diorama accessories or as the high-end of the 'toy' market!

Its a 54mm piece. The head is the best thing on this as the heads for scale link were sculpted by Roger Saunders. Just brilliant.

Hi Ross,

Great painting on a subject (WWI) that has been ignored for way too long. It now seems to become a bit more "popular". Can you please show us some more pics of this outstanding figure? Many thanks in advance.

Best wishes,

Gino

Cheers for the comments chaps. I will try and get a few more pics taken.

Gino - I know with Marijn's recent work hopefully WW1 will recieve some more attention from the manufacturers. It is actually quite a colourful period.
