Sculpting Pith Helmetted Heads (Part 2)

A couple of days ago I recieved a little package in the post...

The contents consisted of 20 resin copies of the Pith Helmet I sculpted as part of a Tutorial a few months back. The thing is I was rather pleased with that particular piece and decided it would be ideal for my 28mm Pith Helmetted Heads. Doing it this way, using a single master, also meant that I could achieve consistantcy across the proposed sprue without the headache which would otherwise be entailed. So the helmet was carefuly removed from the head, and sent across 'the pond' to TrooperPX who provides an excellent and reasonably priced Resin Casting service.

There is the odd bubble, but nothing that a little tiny bit of green stuff won't fix, so I'm about to dive into sculpting the faces. After much more thought my plan is for the sprue to consist of 5 heads, two with their mouth closed, two open and one with a beard, I'll also put a spare helmet on each one for conversion's.

Do consider me subscribed for a batch of heads! Oh, and I think there'd be a 'market' for more than a single headless helmet per sprue - maybe it'd be worthwhile to do them on their own as well . . . Jan

When will these be ready to purchase? They will go great with the Rough Riders you sculpted!
