Here is another duel from Benno's that I had with the great Paul from a while back. It was three pictures and anything from the 18th century, an era of history I know nothing about apart from watching "Last of the Mohican's" on the telly. But that's one of the points of this hobby for me to learn something new from history.
|I wanted to try something that looked 18th century so this bloke wearing the classic long coat I think just about covers this.|
|The powder horn is something I have never really got right and the wife would not let me stick that film on again for research something to do with scalping!|
|The base is made from... you guest it sand PVA glue and woodland scenic cast rocks. The fallen log is a real twig so should bloody well look real!|
|The back ground picture I think saves this figure, it blends in really well with the base so it was a good choice from the Internet. The printer played up so that was great fun printing with dregs of the ink.|
|I wanted to try so moss out that I got from Silfor to give that river edge dark damp north American wood look. I would have loved to try some water effects but the base would have to of been much larger.|
|And here it is without the background. This picture is a look better focus than the rest and you get a better view of the base.|
