My recently finished bust. I Painted it with acrylics and I used printers inks on the metals. This 1/9 scale bust was sculpted by Polish sculptor Grzegorz Kapiec. The master was unfinished when I acquired it for United Empire Miniatures. I then over a period of time completed it so it could be cast and added to the United Empire Miniatures line of figures. The bust is some what based on a the character Allan Quatermain "The Lion Hunter". This bust was a fun one to paint, I enjoyed it as it has so different things to paint
