I am so impressed with all your ingenuity! Words can't express..... except to say I WANNA SEE IT FINISHED! LOL

Honestly though, love the way you made bricks so much, I think I'm going to give that a try! I think it'd make a great rock wall or slump stone perhaps?

Wow. Impressed as hell with the look of those stones! Psyched to see this finished.

Bloody clever idea and great result using recycled paper to get that realistic stone effect!

Very creative how you did that! and well, the whole thing really -- your skills are incredible!

I hadn't seen this thread yet, so I'm glad you updated so I could catch up. Smile

As to your question, are you looking for a ready-made figure (as in, with head and body) that you can modify, or do you want recommendations for specific heads, bodies, etc? I ask as it's harder to recommend the latter without knowing what physical appearance you are aiming for.

I'm thinking 18th-19th century rural clothing. I'm really just asking for suggestions. I'll know what I want when I see it.

Not much around for that period, mostly Napoleonic Wars related or ACW both being military, Some civilian but character specific for films, famous leaders etc.. Your best bet is the good old fashioned ebay hunt, type in 1/6 trousers or pants THEN JUST GO THROUGH THE LISTING UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT YOU WANT, REPEAT FOR BOOTS, SHIRTS ETC.. oops got caps stuck on there. There is a seller who specialises in more unusual period clothing for 1/6, some of it is garbage and overpriced other bits are stuff that is quite rare and has okay prices, he used to be in the UK but moved to Bulgaria; I've been buying from him for years to get odd things for historical, fantasy and even sci-fi builds: BlackAshKitBash

Well, I mean, wouldn't a blacksmith normally be wearing very little due to the heat?

I don't know how I came to miss this thread, and forgive me for having done so.

This is amazing, and some of the best craftsmanship I've seen in this forum. So well done. Really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

CHEERS!

It came together ok. I'm not happy with the paint job but it will do for now. The construction looks simple but there are over 60 hours in this.

I actually love the paintjob. This looks incredible! I know you said you're way more focused on the gear than the figure, but I so want to see a figure in there for scale, working this beautiful beast. So Impressed!

So would I.

If you haven't seen it, shazz (though I'm sure you have), here's an interesting link with period sketches and paintings:

Here's some cool images I found of blacksmith's shop, etc. (some recreations -- probably from Colonial Williamsburg) that you may find useful:

Wow! This I should certainly coming along. I have not been to the New York State Fair here in my state for several years, but they have a fully working blacksmith shop . I think this summer I will make it a point to go check it out this year since your project is so interesting. Keep up the work and posting updates!

Found a head sculpt. Looks like Jeff Bridges from Iron Man but he should make a good blacksmith.

Heh. Ironmonger is a cool name for a blacksmith.

I had a look but decided that I didn't want to spend any more money. So far I've bought a knife sharpener, a head sculpt, a plant pot, fireplace bellows, and a crap-ton of popsicle sticks. Total cost around $30. Everything else has been scrounged up for free or scratch-built. I found an old bag of Ken doll clothes. There should be something in there I can use. I'll make a leather apron, which will cover up most of his clothing anyway.

I like the way you think, just like me, use others people's 'junk' to make pieces of art. You'd be amazed what I find dumped outside my house! LOL.

Slowly working on walls. I was initially just going to use printouts, which would have been fine for a photoshoot, but not for a proper diorama display. Going to make them using wood panelling but it is taking a while to get it looking right. Need to keep the rustic feel of it. I think the type of stain I use on the wood will be critical.
