PostSubject: Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy   Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy EmptyFri Apr 27, 2012 6:08 pm

Hi All,
I was excused duty for the last two days so I have started my other modelling project from Blood On The Painted Mountain depicting Buller's rescue of D'Arcy.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Model.
I have attached a number of illustrations showing the rescue of D’Arcy. I purchased Verlinden’s 1741 General Colbert 120mm Red Lancer figure as the basis of my conversion as the pose of the horse fit the bill to a tee.
Yesterday I have just taken a laborious 4 hours plus to grind off the Napoleonic saddle and unwanted head tack. I have tacked the horse together ready to fill and sand down. All comments and help always greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Richie

Today I have made some further progress roughing out the two figures and the overall pose. Hope you enjoy my interpretation.
(90th if you look in - I have just had a word with my mate who has bought a lathe, I've asked him for a price to make a Zulu war period artillery piece and limber in 120mm scale, so if the price is right I just might make Isandhlwautf"saving the guns")
cheers

PostSubject: Re: Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy   Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy EmptyFri Apr 27, 2012 7:08 pm

Hi John,
Thanks for looking in mate. Firstly this is a one off custom conversion and is not available commercially. If you wanted to buy the figures that I have used then you are looking at approx. £40-£50 for the Lancer (I bought this only for the pose of the horse, this is still commercially available from Verlinden). The 2 figures again are made from a number of other model parts. If you were to buy the other models, plus additional accessories without what I scratch build then you are probably looking at another £120 if you can find them as they are out of production.This is without the cost of a base, groundwork and the paint/painting.

Are you looking for model figures from this period to make or buy??? What sort of scales are you looking for??? If you PM me I am sure I can point you in the right direction or help you out.
cheers

Hi John,
Do you want to make this yourself or buy completely finished??? I have never ever seen what you want in this scale as a kit. Not saying it can't be done! I know someone who makes scale model weapons and has a lathe, so the gatling gun and limber could be manufactured. The figures are a different problem. Again these could be made but not bought. Please let me know your thoughts.
cheers

Hi John,
I will have a word to my mate and see what price he comes up with for the gatling gun and limber. I may be able to help you with some parts for the figures, but it looks like a scratch build for the figures, depending on the pose of the figures. Be in touch soon.

Hi Richie.

This seems to be coming on well my friend, and the horse is just right for the pose, can I ask about the headwear though, are you going to alter those?

Can't wait to see the different stages of this project, it looks like it's going to be a real cracker.

Best wishes mate.

Martin. Salute

Hi Richie .
I'm sure this will be sensational once finished and as usual I cant wait to see the finished product . I agree with Martin everything looks excellent even at this early stage . '' Saving The Guns '' will certainly be well worth seeing ! . Looking forward to seeing if it can eventuate as well . Good luck mate with the projects .

PostSubject: Re: Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy   Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy EmptySat Apr 28, 2012 2:28 pm

Hi Matin,
Thanks for looking in, still miles to go before this one will finished. Yes, I was keeping the slouch hats with puggree, in the last photo, the book on the right shows Redvers Buller in the middle and is depicted in a Norfolk jacket and slouch hat, I have also seen this in a number of other sketches and drawings in similar attire. The particular one that comes to mind is a sketch by W. Fairlie in Brave Mens Blood.

Do you think this is incorrect???

Probably do D'Arcy in a blue patrol jacket and cord breeches!

Hi 90th,
Thanks for looking in mate, it has been some grind to get to this stage, however I am pleased up to now. I will certainly look at the possibilty of the Royal Artilllery model - it all depends on what the field piece and limber cost! Saying that, 6 suitable horse's and 3 crew (in 120mm scale) alone would be pushing £300-£400.
God she had a crack at me last month for spending £300 on models and consumables. Mad Still, might aswell be hung for a sheep as a lamb. Very Happy
cheers again Salute

Hi 90th,
Yes, the WW2 figures were the first I made (I still have quite a few WW2 kits unbuilt), I keep them so I compare my progress, but once the cabinet is full of Zulu war figures they may need to find a new home.
Thank you for your kind words, but after what I saw the other weekend at a modelling show, mine are poor in comparison. I need to up my game in the painting department.

Hi All,
After 3 weeks of just work and family, I have finally managed to get a few hours in. I have started to contruct the detail on the standing figure - the patrol jacket, using lead foil, fuse wire, solder wire and milliput (modelling putty).

Hi All,
I have managed to complete some more work this weekend. I have finished all the sculpting detail on D'Arcy, I only have the sword, spurs and pistol lanyard to add after painting.
I have started to sculpt the jacket on Buller, still loads to do but the project is moving again.

Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy Empty
PostSubject: Buller's rescue of D'Arcy   Buller's Rescue Of D'Arcy EmptyTue May 29, 2012 1:08 pm

Hi Richie.

The project is coming on great mate, the small details must take ages to get right, you must have a very steady hand and good eyesight.

Still a little puzzled about the headwear though, as most drawings, paintings, etc, that I have seen, depict Buller wearing a helmet, and D'Arcy with no head dress, but that just might be the artists own interpretation of what they assumed the men to have been wearing. Whatever mate, this model looks splendid so far, and is a credit to you and your skills.

Well done mate.

Regards.

Martin. Salute

Hi Martin,
Thanks for looking in mate and the very nice comments. To be honest this one has tested my dexterity and patients at times, that does not take into account glueing my fingers together.

Hope to make a big dent in it this bank holiday weekend as I have nothing planned at last.

I have seen 4 different depictions of Buller and D'Arcy and I think you're right it's Victiorian artistic license. I have seen Buller depicted alone wearing a slouch hat and Norfolk jacket. Due to the Frontier Light Horse I wanted to depict them in slouch hats, cord breeches, patrol jacket and probably Buller in a Norfolk jacket. My own artistic license, based on reading up on the uniforms worn.
cheers

Hi Martin,
This certainly has 6 weeks of my life upto now. Thanks for the nice comment, very humbling. I have been trying to find one of the images that give me inspiration and inspired the choice of headwear, hope you are still not flummoxed now.
Thanks again for the support
cheers

Hi springbok9,
Thank you for the lovely comment, as I have said before it is my way of trying to give a little back to this wonderful site. Since the Frontier Light Horse were a Colonial Regiment maybe when this is completed it should reside in South Africa one day.
cheers
Richie

Hi 90th,
Thanks for all the support as usual, things in pommy land are just bonza mate

Hi The1stLt,

Hi Richie. Im a newby to the forum. Just wanted to say your work is absolutely first class, I have see quite a lot of painted models, but none to this standard. The Lancer was a unque piece of work. It has to be said this forum certainly as some top class craftsman. Salute

Hi Ulundi,
Firstly welcome to this great forum. Thank you for a massive vote of confidence, you want to see some of the work I have seen produced by some fellows modellers, make me look like an infant potato printer :lol:

I am not aswell read as some of the lads and lasses on here,although I have a pile of books to get through and this is one way I can contribute something back to this forum.

Many thanks again, please look in again I am always up for critique to help me improve.

Hi Gary (90th),

My word mate, you must have some size of cabinet, books, models, artifacts, medals, etc, etc, make it yourself did you? :lol: :lol:

Anyway, I think that if you look back on the threads, you will find that I was the first to suggest to Richie to have a go at making a model of Buller, so if Richie wants the model to get a good home, then I should be first in line. Very Happy

But saying that Richie and his good lady wife are looking after MY model of the Col Sgt 24th foot (2nd Warwickshire) regiment, then I suppose that it's only fair to let Richie decide. Anyway, he is already looking after 1879graves's model of the Lancer, so poor Richies cabinet must be getting full, Suspect :lol:

Hope all well down under mate. Salute



Hi Richie.

No mate, no longer flummoxed now.

This model will look fantastic when finished, you have a great talent my friend.

Martin. Salute

Anyway I have a lovely spot on the mantle piece thats available. :lol:
South Africa should definitly be its home.......................Africa is calling.

Hi CTSG.

Is there any chance that you will be putting that super camera of yours with the fantasic telephoto lens on ebay? Very Happy

That photo you took from your back garden of iSandlwana was splendid mate, wish I had a camera like that. :lol:

I have a pair of officers riding breeches, if I get her indoors to stitch a label in with the name "Chelmsford" on it, will you swap your camera for them? Shocked :lol:

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all again for your support. Due to personal circumstances of family (2 operations,the wife and dad) and work (doing a distance learning course) I have had no free time over the last few months to dedicate to this up until now.

I have made some progress and hope to make an even bigger dent in this and a couple of others over the next few weeks. I will keep you informed as I progress.
cheers
Richie

wow - that is outstanding work. truely breathtaking.

I read through the thread and noticed you commented on other modellers being better than you.

Point 1 I find that difficult to believe, your work is outstanding
Point 2 as someone with the modelling skills of Edward Scissorhands but with a study that always has room for the Zulu war - do these modellers ever sell any of their work and how would you find it?

Keep up the good work cant wait to see it finished and if you are acceptiong commissions (which I think you should) I would be happy to be your agent for the small price of a model of Pope and Goodwin-Austin's last stand Salute

PS Richie

My first piece of advice as your potential agent :lol: If you wife is giving you grief about spending £2-300 on modelling materials - I suggest you point out the recent auctions for isandlwana causalty and survivor medals - see thread for Hamer .
I suspect at this point she will be glad you are modelling and not collecting medals!! I wouldnt be surprised if she went and bought the materials herself :lol:

we all answer to a higher authority - the trick is rather like Durnford to learn how to interpret orders!!
