I've had my hands full recently, but I'm hoping to get a little painting done over the Christmas season. I'm torn between some Mahdists, which I have helpfully got based and primed or some 1/72 Zvesda Pikemen and Musketeers for Pikeman's Lament.
In the meantime, I can spare the time to appreciate the really fine work our man in Budapest has done on this Lifeguards Trumpeter.
The pictures here don't do this chap justice. He's 1/16 scale and is currently guarding one of my bookshelves. An old Airfix figure, he towers over almost anything else in my collection.
Mr. Tibi has done a very fine job on this chap.
I particularly like the subtle tonal shifts in the red. Painting red or white are a pain in the neck at the best of times, but he's has done it very well.
There's been a lot on for the last few months, but hopefully we'll get back into something approximately a decent routine shortly.
