Superb sculpt from bonaparte Miniatures of a Polish Lancer, circa 1812, carrying his saddle, during winter. The body and head are cast as one piece with the saddle and accessories attached cast as anothe huge hunk of resin. The castings are sharp with virtually no clean up required anywhere and all the bits slot togeher with ease.
A few shots of the completed item pre shaded (NOT my images);

So i have started on is face, going for a cold, fed up , disheartened look, which i hope i have captured;

Have the eyes to finish off and detail.

Hi Steve
A beautifully cast piece. Face does indeed look cold and fed up. Lots of intricate painting needed on the saddle/baggage.

Sweet! That poor chap certainly has the look of someone who would rather be anywhere else.

This looks like a superb model - painting can't mask a poor sculpt, but a good sculpt gives every opportunity to do something special, I'm sure. This looks great already.
