WW1 project - update 3

Hi guys,

Another month, another update.

I was not as active as I'd hope as far as sculpting goes, but I made some jumps.

Firstly, I now have six initial dollies, with 3 more being sculpted that were not photographed.

You can see them below. A persistent tendency to make them smaller is rather obvious and it is something I just can not fix. I am not satisfied with them but rather than leaving them as they are, I will probably try to bulky them up eventually, so to at least get the proportions where I want them. It is not all bad, as I am quite satisfied with the puttees  on the last three. This is something I was unable to duplicate on the three I am working on now, so they will be a step back.
 Weapons are proceeding no better, I went to hunt for the just right thickness of wire and here, too I struggle as my rifles are too thin, too narrow and as far as the latest go - too short.
 The hopefully recognisable machine gun on top, however, is a different story. It needs some cleaning up before I go on to details, but so far I am quite satisfied. It took me a while to find a store that carries brass tubes and then some more to return the optimistically 4mm wide one for 2.5.

As proportions follow the tube, I was able to make it bulkier. It's a bit 'heroic', but I quite like  that and hope other equipment and miniatures will be able to follow.

In other news, my motivation for the project is slowly lower as the progress is slow, but I am just realising how better I feel now that I posted the progress and will hopefully be able to do so at least every other week.

Thanks for looking,


  1. The Sculpting does look very good
    keep it up

  2. The dollies look great mate- the poses look really natural too. Like the work onthe guns too- especially the MG.



  3. The dollies do work well and don't forget that people are different sizes, whilst the wepons aren't
    The mg, even if a little oversized (in your opinion) looks great.

  4. Thanks guys, I am giving them another try now :D

    As for the MG, it might be too small in the end after all!

  5. I want to use this opportunity to appreciate Dr Ekpen for the good work that his doing around the world, many of you must have ahead of him and what his doing.
