|Two new castings to paint and some 20 year veterans to wash and touch up before I base and flock them.|
The mould came out pretty well despite having some rough texture but while I was cleaning off the Plasticine prior to pouring the second half, I dropped it and the Officer's head vanished into thin air on the first bounce. ARGHHH!
After an extensive search I gave up. The face part with peak and moustache was already set so I popped a pillbox cap head into the hole and hoped for the best. It didn't turn out as good as the original but its use-able with a bit of filing and I only need one or two anyway, the Rebel officers will be using kepis or broad brimmed campaign hats and some of the Queen's officers will be in Shako.
|A very glare-y first casting.|
