This is a particularly early work in progress but I need the power of your collective ideas to help me.
I have strived to account for as many known nobles and personalities of this campaign and one particular personality i'd really like to do is John Blanke, a black trumpeter to the courts of both Henry VII & Henry VIII.
There are references to 'John Blanke, the blacke trumpeter' stated in the form of payments made by the Treasurer of the Chamber, he earned a 8d a day, here's his 'salary statement';
But how can I help, I hear you cry.....
Well, I intend to use the body of the trumpeter figure shown below with a head swap but I need a suitable head and I'm having some difficulty finding one to match the image above as closely as possible, so far my best bet is perhaps one of the Swiss heads with a turban but it's not quite as close a match as i'd like it. Any ideas?
