I am stunned with your sculpting quality! The proportions you achieve give to your figure a highly aesthetic and harmonius look!
Many congratulations!

Great article. At some point I think Im going to take a step back chronologically and make an early archaic hoplite with the full panoply that covered almost all the body.

Captain Harlock,

Any new figures done?
Love the two you have done.
I am sure that many on this Forum would be interested in purchasing them,
 if they go on sale.

The third one is coming around, soon i will upload some pics. Im on vacations right now at my summerhouse and things kinda slowed down abit. The weather doesnt make it very easy if it continues like that i wont need an oven for beesputty  lol i can just leave it outside  lol. But i have all my stuff here and continue working on the minis.
I got some price quotes for resin casting so if there is interest surely things are going to happen  :)

I am ready to pre-order! They all look magnificent! I can't wait to use them for Mortal Gods. Also I wouldn't mind your take on a 12th century crusader. :-*

Actually before these I was thinking of starting an 11th century  eastern roman set. I have a cataphract almost ready, just missing a head.  :)
