    Whilst all my other w.i.p.´s are not progressing :facepalm: this piece is coming along nicely.
    1/18 Pachyrhinosaurus sculpted by Keith Strasser.
    Simple 2-piece kit and base. Head/neck fitting needed a deal of work and clean-up/prep took longer than I would have liked, but the kit is a "looker" and has its charms.

    Beautiful job, Spike! I agree with the others, I like how you're bringing out the skin texture.

    I take it you used a piece of rod to attach and support the head?

    Prost!

    Thanks for the support, guys.
    Yes, Brad, the head-neck join was drilled and pinned with a carpentry screw for extra grip.

    Adrian, techniques so far - simple time-consuming stippling built up with lots of layers (and patience!), some thin washes and dry-brushing. Primed with Army Painter Skeleton Bone, pre-shading glaze of Golden Asphaltum Glaze. Base coated light neutral grey, glazed again to pick out more detail, some lighter colder greys randomly dabbed on. Then, using several distressed brushes reserved only for stippling, 3 shades of Raw Umber (transparent; watered-down opaque; opaque) followed by 3 shades of Shading Black (as before) and a final overlay of Carbon Black. Colouring on the head is thin washes and dry-brushing.
    Spike.
