    Well here goes....I am a first time figure painter and I am ready to throw myself to the Wolves! It is a limited edition club member Tommy’s War 1918 Western Front Sniper. It is all done with acrylics so far. I didn’t know where to start so I started with the most obvious his trench coat.

    Thanks for looking

    Great start on what looks to be another super figure from Tommys War.

    Thanks for sharing your work. I too think you did a nice job on the leather work on the trench coat! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the leg wraps!

    Thanks again for your kind words of encouragement. I managed to sneak in some more bench time as we all know life can get in the way. So I managed to get the hessian leg wraps and boots done.I am not completely convinced on the end result of the boots,but I am not too concerned as the figure will end up with mud on his boots.I do have some questions though...I am chasing that fine blend in and I am looking into oils can I use oils over acrylics? If so what clearcoat? As I have heard some varnish products can take the depth of the the work away.

    Ohh and forgive my photo sharing still learning how to do that as well

    Nice work so far. It is a very good good sculpture, I have to say, and I am interested in the result. I'll watch ...

    Cheers Borek ;)

    Hi Nos
    Neat to see this little guy painted as first time I've seen someone work on him.
    Ref oils - they go straight over acrylics, no need to clear coat.
    Enjoying your photos & learning.
    Thanks for sharing.
