Uri hornblower - WIP

Just a small update here; I must admit I am very pleased with how my conversion for a Uri musician is coming along. A few manufacturers make one in metal, but they are all older sculpts with very heavy features (chunky hands and faces) so I decided to make my own. Just need to get the spear head attached and he will be getting basecoated with the next batch of pikemen.

For those wondering why he has horns on his head, this is the regalia frequently depicted for the musicians of the forest canton Uri. The image I based the conversion on is circled below.

Also visible in the background are some of my first metal pikemen, again Perrys. I am now re-discovering how much I dislike painting metals in comparison to plastics!
