    Just finished this one from troop 54, lovely sculpt in 54mm and a dream to paint. The figure goes together with no problems. I broke the pipe so he is smoking a fag, a roll up as I don't think ready made were about at this time. First time painting a face in acrylics my second was the Swiss officer by MM.
    I had to wait to finish this one till I could source cheap cork bark.

    Bob good start to the year, nicely painted and presented with the groundwork, that guy has a dander as though he hasn't got a care in the world, the Black and White picture worked beautifully.

    That looks great Bob, got to agree with the others, the groundwork is really good and sets the scene well.
