Wire, Milliput and Paper in Line
The third squadron is already cast and is now undergoing assembly. With the completion of the rank and file now plainly on the horizon, I need to decide what to do about the regiment's officers. I'd prefer to complete the regiment using all my own figures: my first attempt to do so will be by converting the trooper figure by cutting off straps and modelling coats without turnbacks using milliput.
Meanwhile, my attempts at sculpting some new figures is going badly. I have an acceptable dolly now, but building up the uniform on top of it is proving a frustrating task. It seems that whenever I add milliput to the dolly, the stuff is determined to adhere to anything else. However, I shall persevere: the only way to succeed at something like this is to work at it and learn from each failure.
