I have had a pretty good week this week and have actually managed to sculpt a bit... I think I may be on a bit of a roll.
Work on my friend's sculpting project continues with me sculpting a running body for his Squats. As I predicted, the running body is being quite difficult so I am taking things very slowly so that I get the proportions right. I have a bulked out body and legs but I need to sort the feet out before I finish the legs and start work on the padded armour. No pics at present but I think I should have some progress pix next week (by that, I mean a finished running body).
In the title, I mentioned a week's holiday... that is this coming week so I should have some time for a bit of hooby in amongst all the plans I have for more sorting and consolidating... but you don't want to hear about tidying... you want to see pix so here is my standard bearer (I will be adding a paper flag after he is painted):

and here is the sniper for the command squad:

I have been asked why the sniper doesn't have a gillie suit on and my answer was that he is part of the command unit and would likely stay with that unit... so would be very unlikely to be in a position where a gillie suit would be appropriate. I have also mentioned that I plan to have a full sniper unit (special weapons squad) in gillie suits as part of the army and they will all have them so it will be appropriate.
In other news, I have bought another three Ghar suits from Ebay (hopefully arriving this coming week) and they will bring my tally upto 12 which is the perfect size for a platoon. Unfortunately, I still only have 3 complete, 3 almost complete and 3 un-made... but it seems that sculpting has piqued my interest at the moment and I daren't challenge it!
This coming week, I hope to finish the running body, finish the comms specialist for the command sqaud and hopefully get a good way towards finishing the medic too (if not finishing him).
I am glad that I have decided to work on the Squat bodies as it seems to have fired my enthusiasm a bit (especially seeing as I am quite pleased with how the first one has come out). Hopefully, I will be able to keep the momentum going... we'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
See you from the edge of the rails!
