Hello all

I've created some dollies in coats to speed up my efforts in creating some early Tudors. They were not developed with sale being the primary aim but they are available for preorder for anyone who's interested.

They're not complete figures and further modelling is required but they've satisfied the primary aim of speeding up my sculpting process.

International postage is no problem. More details are on my blog;

Presumably these could be used with the helmeted heads and arms from the Perry WotR plastic sets, and the "bonneted" heads from their Italian Wars metal range?

I don't think anyone else makes early Tudor figures (all 1540s and Elizabethan), so well done Stuart.

They can indeed, in fact that was my aim, here they are assembled as Bill. They're made to fit the Perry plastic sets and just require assembly and simple sleeves to be added for the top of the jackets a bit of rudimentary sculpting but not too much effort to bring those sets into the early 1500's

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

These call out for a Guinegate 1513 campaign. Perhaps for the abandonded invasion of 1514, with a core of 15k Landsknechts under de la Pole reviving the War of the Roses…

Here's a tutorial on how to build the figure and sculpt the sleeves;

My problem is avoiding making the upper sleeves look like Space Marines.

Great work, shaping metal & plastic to look like cloth is not easy as cloth is such an alive material when worn.
