Colonel Ackland (Part 3)

Progress continues, 16 days left to finish him if he's gonna make it as an entry for the UK Painting Competition, a few mistakes and bad choices have left the paint a little thick in places, and the more I go on with him the more I realise how far I've got to go, but at the same time looking back at my very first models (maybe I'll post em one day lol) its also so satisfying to realise how far I've come. Please forgive the pics, light is fading here so they're not ideal, the closer up shots give quite a nice idea while the longer away ones show the rough pose of the arms are now going to take.

Sculpts (Part 7)

TrooperPX has does up some test casts of the first batch of components, with that I'm satisfied I'm ready to continue on the project. My plan at the moment is to await being able to get hold of some of these early ones and then to assemble a couple personally, and probably paint. I'll then complete the sculpting, I may try an adjust the width of the torso's a little as they seem quite wide at the moment, will see how they look once I've got assembled models in my hands!

Colonel Ackland (Part 2)

A bit of an update on Colonel Ackland, most of the sculpting is now done - except the arms - the reason for that being it's gonna be easier to paint the torso before the arms are added, so next it's an undercoat and getting that part painted, then I'll finish the arms.
