    Hi all, a new project
    After the not so great female sniper I went back to
    Young miniatures again.
    One of the older bustes but it’s a Nice piece

    The face is painted With vallejo and life color.

    I’ve added more camouflage pieces to make the helmet more attractive and to cover up some casting errors
    I’ve used 2 component greenstuff for this
