Renaissance Swiss Drummer for a Work-in-Progress Command Stand


Hmm, the week seemed to have slipped away from me so I didn't get as much done as I wished. Nonetheless, I did manage to finish this Swiss drummer for an upcoming command stand for my Italian Wars collection. 



As you can see, this guy is a veritable riot of colour, but I think if you have the moxy to wear tights into battle then you're allowed to have a little creative sartorial expression as well.

Hopefully I can get the rest of the group done for next weekend.

Thanks for popping in and have a great week!

    1. Hmmm, wrong spoof - "Reuben Hood" was from the George Segal one
