Nearing the Finish Line. . .

The latest three Jackdaw civilian figures (almost) completed.  I'm especially pleased with the tray of fruit carried by the African servant.  I should have been a confectioner and specialized in marzipans!

Almost finished with the three figures show above, but the gentlemen in green needs a bit more attention. . .  and gold lace on his his cuffs plus a buckle on his white waist belt.  The, it's on to the final base of  four figures: two ladies, a bowing gentleman, and another tray-laden servant.   The ladies are just about finished, so it's really just some detailing for the two males, which i might be able to accomplish in an evening or two, if life is kind that is, early in the week.  

And then there are those two mounted ladies by Minden Miniatures.  They are their steeds require some considerable detailing although the main colors are blocked in.  I'm scrambling at this point to tie up several things, so that I can actually write the accompanying article, which I have promised for the end of May.  And since I am teaching, as usual, a May Term film course, time is scarce for the next almost two months, and there is still much to do.  The pressure is on!

Looking good! I agree that your work on the fruit tray is very good. Do you find any difficulties in reaching parts of figures when you have multiples mounted on one base like that?
