The Build Up

I took pity on the ‘mime artist’ and extended his reins with   some more green stuff so that he looked like he was doing the right sort of thing with his hands. I also remodelled the staff officer’s saddle, adding green stuff to a broken pointed end and building the front to better match the size of the horse. Big hands are a characteristic of Pendraken figures. Small hands seem a characteristic of the Old Glory figures. This is quite in keeping with the scale of the figures but disappoints when the hands are a key feature of a figure – and also when an arm appears to end abruptly at the cuff with no obvious hand in sight. I gave the staff officer a chunkier hand in a bit of a Pendraken styley. Only the front hand, the figure’s right hand looking less like a characterless flat rectangle.
