OK time for a little update, apologies for the lack of noise from me :-)

Here is a little pic of my next figure for the range. A leader for the slingers. He is now a lot further on from this basic blocked out pose shot I sent Mike before I went ahead with detail.


Now the question is I would like some ideas on some detail to add to his top. He is wearing a cuirrass type top which I imagine being a toughened leather type. I would like to add some embossed detail to the chest area to jazz him up some but not sure what it should be.
Ideas please :-)

Certainly an interesting model, Mark - and definitely a heroic pose.

I would like a rather plain leather helmet. Herders are un-armoured - so there leader shouldn't stand out to much. But you could detail the leather a bit, so it looked like a finely hand crafted one - made out of a several pieces of leather.

For amour I'd like just a chest plate - perhaps a bit like this:

I'm loving the pose on this one Smiley

That leather breastplate looks neat. I could see that working.

Btw Mike, you should be getting the slinger captain in time for Salute. Email you some pics later.   :wink:

Why not make that an open letter to Mike, here  Roll Eyes

Didn't know it was to be kept a secret Sad - so all-in-all this was just to show us how to make a Fubarnii armatures then? Smiley

Oh! - and really didn't know Mike was that hard working for - seems like such a nice guy - lol. Next time you better have him approving the design concept - so you don't have to rework the entire miniature?  Grin

Don't worry, Mark's just a hard-done by Artiste... by 90% he means two (realtively) minor alterations. I didn't even ask him to remove the apples! Smiley
Mark will hopefully share photos before he sends the sculpt over to me in the next day or two  Smiley

He looks really cool. I like that his sling is under wraps and he's idly got his foot on a rock like the rest of the unit can take care of any probs.

Excellent miniature, Mark - and certainly a must have.

Thanks.
Having the sling tied to the staff like that means its easier to sculpt and cast. They are really thin and I struggled with the first herders I did although the posing was a bit nicer. Always thinking of ways to get around problems while trying to keep the figures as cool as possible.

Feel free to replace the rock with a Devanu or Delgon corpse  Grin
