And now for something completely different!

Very cool, I like him. Care to share the whole regiment with us? Wink

Nicely done - a favourite new thread is born!

Not bad! Not bad at all. I would like to see you make that inquisitor in 58mm scale too though Just Kidding (yes I play inquisitor)

@SprayAnPray: Perry Miniatures
There is a link to the Perry Brothers site. They do amazing historicals from quite a few periods. The detail they sink into these models for their personal ranges speaks volumes about the passion they have for the material. They describe GW as their "day job"; this is their labour of love.

The Drummer Boy was a lot of fun to paint. The bright colours were a bit of a departure from anything I had done in a very long time. I didn't enjoy it enough that I'd attempt to paint a proper Napoleonic army but I think it would be pretty cool to make a bugler to accompany him. In the larger guard force the two would add some distinction to the RCS and count as bodyguards for the CO.

A model in 54mm would be pretty forgiving comparably speaking. Any basic shapes would be better formed the larger you were able to make them. The only hard sell would be taking the time to go to town on the embellishments. The whole, "It's easier" part is a double edged sword because it's just that much easier to see the flaws. I don't think I'd be ready to touch that with a ten foot pole. I am converting a 1/12 dragon fig to use as a statue of saint and have grabbed some of his kit from my INQ stockpile though.

On the let's see the regiment front I have some cool news. I've enjoyed posting on the forum but have been disappointed with the ability to dress up my posts. Over the holidays I hit blogger and started monkeying around with starting a hobby blog. It's more a proto-blog at the moment because I don't have many posts (I tried to hit it with a few posts quickly to start it with a little meat but it has a long ways to go). For now I'm trying to give my guard rebuild some attention. Some of the content is already here on the thread and some of the stuff is new if you have been following the WIP. I'd be ecstatic if anyone was willing to check out what I have so far and share comments or criticisms so I improve on it.

Thanks,
horrid

The blog looks ace - some of the stuff you have on there are amazing - the Bradenvoss 812 are particularly cool. If you are after bare heads to kickstart the project try out maxmini and puppet wars (or puppetswar?) they have some great stuff, not to mention Victoria miniatures (which has a ton of praetorian minis).

You probably know about all of these already, but here's the links for anyone else...

@Laney

I'm not going too far from the scheme of the Bradenvoss for the new project. I was happy with the pattern but it may need to be lightened a bit to really "pop". It sounds stupid but it's been my experience that good camo patterns on small scale models don't do what they are supposed to. As much as they represent something that obscures detection they really should attract the eye.

Your referrals are pretty solid. I really like the stuff that Victoria Lamb puts out. Her stuff is amazing. I've been following her stuff for years. I'm pretty much set on using the Perry plastics with my own sculpts in GS this time around but wanted to add a supplier to your suggestions. The guy who runs Mad Robot Miniatures still has a pretty small range but he is talented and ambitious and I think it will continue to develop. I may not be on the market but the Mad Robot stuff deserves some attention if any of you guys are looking. The sculptor is active on the IG Message Boards if you want to connect with him. He wants feedback and is probably open to suggestions on the sorts of things he should be rolling out.

Have you ever used any of the victoria lamb stuff? I'm seriously tempted by these, but I before i spent £35-£40 on ten men, I want to know if they're any good?

EDIT - Oh yeah! Checked the blog, loving it. Any chance of posting some WiP for Field Marshal Cosca Zukas? Such an awesome character!

I should have responded to this promptly as it's an easy one. I can't do a WIP with Cosca because he was so quick to make. I built him in a single sit down that didn't take an hour. "Boarding" the model really sped up the build process. I sat the project knowing exactly what I wanted to do with the figure (a real departure) then top of head swap, 'stache, monocle and complete. I didn't think to take a photo because it whizzed by so quick.

I should have done something with the paint but he needs some touch ups so when I get on it I'll do the fixes with a before/after examination. I'm pretty slack with the blog on account of stage fright with the crazy traffic spike I had and should put out some more content even if I'd rather hide.
