A military history of the late 17th century and the early 18th century
Good observation, Ralphus. The basic drillbook pose, but oddly under-represented, in any scale.A couple years back, I embarked on a small project of having some 40mm WSS French infantry sculpted. That was the very first pose I selected. He casts pretty well in one piece, so I suppose the rarity's more on account of people preferring action poses to static. Even though army life has always featured a lot of standing around. ;-)
that sounds interesting.. very...you have to send some photos...are they available at all...? Tell us more
Sure. Here he is. I'm not entirely satisfied with the result but it's not too bad.http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z39/cpl_trim/Clairon/fig1a.jpghttp://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z39/cpl_trim/Clairon/fig1.jpgAnother couple of pics, command and firing line. http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z39/cpl_trim/Clairon/Command25.jpghttp://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z39/cpl_trim/Clairon/Clairon004-1.jpgYou can paste the links to your browser to view the figures.The idea was to have a custom range for myself which I do a little business with on the side. I've sold some, but haven't pushed it at all. And let me assure you, Ralphus, I didn't come here to pedal figures. You have a great blog which features the era I'm interested in. Regards,Steve
brilliant. I think they deserve their own posting...do you have a contact/webpage as I am sure people will want to get their hands on these...do you have plans for any more?
Thanks, Ralphus. No web page, but I can be reached by e-mail at "email@example.com". Feel free to post any pictures if you like.At the moment, no plans to commission additional sculpts.
