My drawer full of Historex bits and bobs were screaming for attention. The piece was inspired by a Edouard Detaille study of a French Infantry Officer late 1700's. This was a fairly easy "conversion" with most of the scratch build work being done on the hat and arms. With a little imagination and elbow grease, Historex body parts can still make a decent figure.
I live in the small town of Bath, Michigan with my wife and children.
I have been modeling figures for 25 plus years. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by military uniforms of the past and soldier material culture. This then led me to express my interest through modeling figures from many time periods and scales.
