Hans Joachim von Zieten

 Hans Joachim von Zieten will be one of my new projects I will be working on in 2011. He was the cavalry general from the Prussian army who served in numerous wars and battles during the reign of Frederick the Great. He was one of Frederick's most trusted generals.
It will be 54mm sculpted figure riding a horse, the painting below will be used as a reference for the figure.

I have made already a start and I used a spare head which will be modified later. The general body pose is sculpted with some wire and Magic Sculp. The next steps will be sculpting the clothing and accessories. Here are some pictures of the early stages.
