More Mason Magic




Armand Louis de Gontaut, Duc de Lauzun by the outrageously talented Doug Mason. Lauzun and his trumpeter are radical conversions (the original figure is cut down to a bare torso, and the uniform and details built back up from wire and soldier) of Gilder figures.

I recommend clicking on the photos to really appreciate the level of detail - the flowing pelisse, flapping sabertache, etc. create a real sense of movement and animation. The painting is pretty sharp too - no one does 'bling' better than DM.

Now all i need to do is create the Legion hussars - don't hold your breath....

Sensational - beautiful. Also mind-blowing, as far as the creative process is concerned. My wife was wondering what the hysterical giggling was about, so she came through here to check.

It is good to see wonders like this - for the sheer glory of it, and to keep one appropriately humble.
