    Drummer, Grenadier guards 1854

    Post  smallia on Fri Jan 03, 2014 10:31 am

    Guys here's my latest effort. It's actually a conversion. The original figure had the drum on the ground and he's holding on to the drum belt. He also had 2 canteens in his right hand. One was removed and slung across. Left hand was resculpted holding sticks, whilst the drum was slung adding the belt across. The coat of arms on the drum was an absolute nightmare to paint. Here you see the close up.
