The very idea of sculpting my own figures seemed like such a difficult task that I really needed the inspiration of a special book and uniform artist. I sculpted five separate heads, bodies, arms, and legs with bases. Using these combinations and adding the odd special heads, or figures, from Dorset miniatures, or the homecast Prince August molds, I hoped to be able to create the entire array of pre WW1 toy soldiers.
It gives me great appreciation of the artistic ability and effort of the true professional sculptors in this arena.
