    What a journey, but he's done. Would like to thank everyone that followed it but esp. Janus, WPS, Kirky, Megroot, and Tonydawe for suggestions along the way. Let me know what you think. [Im still working on his sword sling and planning that out but this is basically it ;)]

    Hi Corey,

    He certainly looks like aSpartan to me. The shield is suitably distressed and the helmet looks awesome.

    Well done.

    Thanks tony, I think for my next figure, more highlights and shades, I think this is pretty fit though

    Nicely finished Corey; you are learning the basics, and it is good to see you move beyond shading just with Black and White:)

    Question; the helmet; is there a seam running along the centre? Rest of the figure looks great, its just that paint was committed before I noticed, sorry about that....:eek:

    Still a very good result for your first large figure!!

    Yeah its a seam.. I noticed it and was rookie with milliput (filler). I'm more advanced with it now and would have fixed that issue but its the way it is, I think everything else justifies it. The arm has a small one too, oh miniart! The next figure will be handled better with seam lines.. And with the shade / highlight.. its bad to have black in there on a flesh color and such thing because sometimes it sticks out like a sore thumb, i'm glad I moved on :D

    Milliput is a great putty, I used it too in the starter days.

    Recently, some one put me onto Vallejo putty. After trying Squadron white (fine, grainy and stinky) Milliput (two part, smoothable, can be challenging) I found the Vallejo putty ideal for small seam filling; very little waste, dries quickly, sands easily (Milliput can be a bear sometimes if mixed improperly; another lesson!!)
