Here's the right side of the vignette. Note the upper leg armor panels on the pikemen are made of putty which were formed on a brass dowel and allowed to cure. A thin coat of Vaseline was brushed on the dowel to keep the putty from sticking. One cured, the panels were then carefully pried off the dowel and carved to shape. Each armored "plate" was carved on the panel. Some filing and sanding was needed to finish them up. These pieces were also all done at the same time.

One can really appreciate the amount of work you've put into this piece. There are some periods that would have required less work.
