    Hey guys, just finished this ( ahh my neck!! ). It is my first time using acrylics and my first "real" mini since I have barely done any in the past. Hope you like it!

    Comments are welcome as always..

    Good Start.

    I can see where you have tried to shade, use layers, and highlight.

    Weapons can be given a bit of a metallic sheen bu rubbing the side of lead pencil along them. (the lead bit, not the wooden bit:D)

    If the neck is sore, what you can do is get a scrap of wood or something to raise the figure up off desk height. Even a 3 -4 inch height improvement is a huge change on neck strain!!

    Like how you have done a neat job on your figure! Mine need a lot more work!! Bit still a very neat finish!


    PS - the metallics for the webbing (suspenders) can be given a slight tint to add some different shades. This will help carry the idea the rank badges and equipment are slightly different!!

    Good idea, I thought it was pretty good for a first. But you can really see where I tried to shade and highlight? Guess it wasnt done proper enough :D

    Bit Belated..

    on his trousers, I can see a wash type effort.

    I can see where you have put shading and highlight efforts onto the water bottle.
    Looking forward to your figure!
