I’m still stunned when I look at your great sculpts. The „Witcher“ is a particularl favorite of mine. Takes the character into a new setting, but still keeps him believable and recognizable.

Brilliantly well done. Out of interest, what type of plastic are Mars figures made from?

Thank you, I'm currently working on the not-Dandelion mini :)

Thank you, I hope you'll enjoy upcoming stuff :).

Thank you, I'm flattered :). The plastic that Mars is using is quite bendy but with a thin coat of elmer's glue as a primer will protect paint from chiping.

Another update

When you take a closer look in to de Gheyn's engravings depicting arquebusers you'll see alot of small details like passemanterie details on power flasks or a bag containing balls and holding the larger power flask or different methods of fastening stockings to pludernhose. While those details are really fun to spot, sculpting them is a rather tedius work.

Here are my three musketeers minis from Ultima Ratio slightly converted (changed blades, repaired surfaces after cleaning mold lines etc.). Still they need a lot of work paint-wise.
