Once I got round to doing the tricky drum cords on the drummer and settled on an advancing style pose for the musketeer it took about three sessions of a an hour or so to finish them off.

Sculpt & Cast - WIP (7) - mr horsey ...

When starting on the horse initially I thought I would end up with something more like a pantomime horse - but once I did the neck & head I could see that I would have something worth continuing with  - I was pleased with the result.

The basic horse, a few bits to correct before saddle, reins etc are added

Sculpt & Cast - WIP (6) - here come the hats ...

After a bit of experimentation got the hand of doing the wide brimmed hats, man walking and standing now completed.
hats/helmet to be added to 4 more foot figures which await them. The drummer and musketeer are lagging behind a bit; I'm considering the best way to put the cords on the drum and I'm making a basic musket for the musketeer to hold. Also I've done some work on the horse which is coming along nicely.
