Hey Tre

A while ago you mentionned an artist that is an inspiration to you and who had published a book with illustrations. Care to share (again) who this artist was?

Hmmm.... well the list of inspiration goes on without end btu I think you may be talking about Paul Bonner. Absolutely brilliant stuff. And his book is a go-to for me for reference on facial expression, anatomy and pure atmosphere.

My current top five though are( in no particular order )

Paul Bonner
Gary Chalk
Jim Holloway
Jesper Ejsing
Peter Mullen ( stupendously awesome old school artist check him out....http://www.freewebs.com/mullenart )

but to be honest I am constanly lookign for inspiration.

I voted single piece models Tre. I've enough to assemble and paint already. :oops:

I refer you to my previous musings on multi part figures.

well these pieces are going to fall down easy to assemble. I am making deep socket and peg fittings that will allow you to dab a bit of glue / putty, place, and forget.

This is a pretty close toss up. If I cast my own vote this poll would be 9 for single part characters and 8 for conversion kits.

I have the would-be standard bearer figure done now and the musician is about 75% done. Figure I should have these done tomorrow and en route to production by wednsday. From there it just depends how long it will take to get the figures through the production cycle.

:D :D :D :D

so.... that means as of now there are 6 footmen modularly fitted for right hand weapons, left hand weapons / shields / odd bits, and head/helms. with 2 beign possibly made into single piece character figures for musician and standard bearer.

Personally I'd go for single piece as it is less cleaning a sodding about with green stuff, but the original HalsVakt fellas were not that bad to assemble anyway...
