Hair and helmet added to figure. Also a start made on a cannon to go in the background with some defensive works.
After looking up Dutch history have decided to place him at the battle of Maastricht in 1673 - that should raise a few eyebrows from those who follow history/politics   !!!!    just need a blue flag with some stars on it .

Not sure if I like a model figure that has more hair than me, or maybe all of us within the club.

What is his secret 'Vosene'....?

Cheers,

I would say it "good clean living" but expect that would get me into trouble.

A ring cut from a cardboard tube and some tooth picks and hey ho we have a wheel -- not up to Zaks standard but good enough for me.

I know YOU are old enough to remember the First World War but I didn't think you went back as far as the Crimean War did you see the Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854 ???????

Trial run for figure and cannon on base - will wait till he has his gun fitted before starting on the base, in case he needs a little bit more room.
