Sculpting an American Civil War Zouave in 54mm

Here's another sculpting video I put together. Thanks to my wonderful computer "geek" son for helping me through this still unknown territory. There's some things I would have changed in editing, like possibly not spending so much time on sculpting the armature but more overall construction of the piece. Ancora imparo!

"I JESU NAMN..." Lutzen 16 November 1632

Getting projects wrapped up for the MFCA/APG Show in a few weeks. Here's a piece inspired by a painting that I grabbed off the interenet. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the artist name or title of the work. The musketeer accessories are from "Glory" miniatures and the AIRFIX English Civil War plastic kits. The head is from Hornet. Painted in acrylics.

Having some small scale fun. This fella is a pikeman from the Thirty Years Wars. I experimented with a satin varnish to give it some protection, in case some day I find motivation to build a wargames army.

Next project underway on the painting workbench

Recap of the Fehrbellin Vignette

As I said in a previous post, I took some liberties in the depiction of these subjects, but for those wondering why Frederick is not on a white horse like the illustration. There is a story that just before the battle, an aide to Frederick, traded horses with the "Great Elector" so as to be not so conspicuous riding on such an obvious target.
