Ahh. one of my favourite threads back from the grave at least, thanks a lot, Hammers! Perhaps a new team here from time to time?  :P

Yes, I have one in the pipeline. That's why I moved the pics here. That web page looked awful and I don't want to refactor it.

May I present the statute which the grateful members of the Duke of Nutherland Kennel Club of Monimasket erected to commemorate its founder and benefactor.



This pieces was meant to be entered in the Age of Big Batallion Paint Club but as things are these day I could not mustert the time to complete it before the PC ran out.

Below you see a photograph of the state in which this equestrian magnificens is most often found. Those goddamn students of the University of Monimasket just can't leave his lordship alone during haze week, midterms and any other occasion they take as an excuse to drink themselves into a stupor and behave as cretins. Complaints have been made repeatedly by the club board to the Dean.



Hannibal is the name of his grace's faithful Great Dane and his effigy has been cast in bronze for posterity beside his master.



The foundation of the statue was cut from pink foam and foam board . It wasthen clad in epoxy putty and textured. The posts are made from miniature brass ship cannons (Billing Boats) with a cannonball on top made from lead shot pellet . They are linked with miniature ship chain. Brass parts were painted in an appropriate verdigris.




The rider is a miniature of Lieutenant-General Sir Thomas Picton as he appeared in his civilian clothes at Waterloo. I believe the sculptor is Paul Hicks but I can't remember who makes it. I got it years go just for this purpose, because that is just the kind of weird I am. The pooch is Hamlet from Hasslefree miniatures. I though he looks suitably heroic for a statue.
