Photo One - The completed Ogre, with a uniform based on a Saxon Light Infantryman, illustrated in Practical Wargamer. The model stands 43mm tall (base of feet to top of shako) or 55mm tall to top of feather and is mounted on to a 2p coin.
Photo Two - The second-hand Ogre, bought from E-Bay for £4.54. I believe the figure was part of the Marauder Empire Ogre range.
The project has been great fun to complete, although very time consuming, waiting for each level of 'green stuff' to harden before going on to the next. The embedded cannon-ball is the head of a steel dressmakers pin, trimmed and pressed in to the soft Milliput, a feature that I have seen on a number of 54mm figurines and something that I have been wanting to try for some time. It seems to work well with this model.
