With a bump...

I just thought I'd post a small update before I go to the Remembrance ceremony today.

I realised yesterday that Captain Britain has done it...

As I ripped his face of for the third time and realised that his proportions were off I knew that my sculpting muse had come to an end. I must admit that I have been pleasantly surprised at how long it has lasted but am a little disappointed that I didn't get through the whole super team before it left.

What does this mean?

First of all, the sculpting side of things will slow right down and actually sculpting will be a difficult process. Because I will be gnarly doing that, I will probably end up getting annoyed with painting...

It's a bit of a wotsit really.

You never know though. Maybe it is a blip and I'll get straight back to things.

In the mean time, here is Fixit of the Star League:

Click the Pic!

He is a miniature that hasn't been converted in any way. He has just been painted and based. He is from Studio McVey and I bought him at Salute this year.

I have extracted a rather old sculpt from the cupboard and have put an undercoat on it. It is a real departure from everything I have done recently and should pander to a wider audience. Maybe some of the more mainstream forums I post on will generate a few replies to my topics with this one...who knows?

Remember the fallen today. Remember the veteran's who made it through, though not quite unscathed.

Which version of Captain Britain are you doing? The original with the quarterstaff or the Alan Davis version?

I'm making Brian Braddock, the first of the Captain Britains. He wears mostly red, has his hair out and carries a staff and wears a chain around his neck.

I am DREADING painting the union flags.
