The photos show the current state of affairs with 'Private Schultz' my master figure for Reichsarmee musketeers. Hopefully, they demonstrate some improvement in technique from my first attempts.
At this point I am torn between hastening to complete the figure so I can start painting, and the need to work a lot more to bring the figure up to a higher standard. This figure, if successful, is likely to be the progenitor of the troops for at least three infantry regiments (almost 150 men) and so every improvement made now will be of considerable value later.
The pose will be March Attack. At the moment I am planning so use brass rods for musket barrels, so only the wooden stock needs to be included on the figure. If I tried to cast the musket using gravity casting I'd have to have a short and excessively thick musket.
