54mm 'Bandeirante' miniature


This is my first historical sculpt, it´s a private commission work I´ve started on Friday night for a collector, it´s a 54mm Bandeirante expeditioner. I´ve taken about 8 hours to sculpt this miniature, and it will be the first of a set of 12 figures, being 6 Bandeirantes and 6 Indians. The weapons like rifle, pistol, and knife will be added later as they´re arriving from U.S.

P.S. Although this is sculpt was hella fun to do and a HUGE challenge to sculpt is such small scale, (even smaller than my Rocketeer), I gotta admit that I´m afraid that I´m going to get blind by the end of this work. lol
