By way of a short progress report, here we have the full complement of Yeomen as Sir Richard Carew's bodyguard, again a little bit of green stuff in preparation, this time I wanted to get as close as I could to the painting of the previous post in modelling some feathers as part of the uniform.

Worthy of a notable mention also is my recent acquisition of my wife's old iphone (as a bonus to her quest to have the latest gadgets I get her cast off's!) which has opened me up to a whole world I was only previously vaguely aware of, that of podcasts, and there is a wealth of podcasts dedicated to history, the 'soundtrack' to my recent work has been a series of three lectures hosted by the British Library by David Starkey which were done as part of the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's coronation. Best of all, they're free!
