    I did further work since originally posting this figure, 80mm Border Miniatures English Master of the Templars. I took some of your excellent advice and did more weathering on the shield, plume, surcoat and chain mail....

    Kyle,
    looking good, especially for only four months in! I would maybe tone down the chain mail a bit, maybe a light wash of black or similar dark color. I like the metals on the helmet alot. You did a stand up job there. I would also look at maybe shading or weathering your shield and plume a bit. Keep up the good work!

    Nicely done Kyle. I would agree with Jay though. Work on areas and you will see great improvement.

    For only 4 months a figure painter that's darned good Kyle. As has already been said, some work on the chainmail would improve it a lot. White isn't an easy colour to shade and you've made a good effort above and below the belts.

    Great work Kyle.
    Some shading will do the chainmail alot of good.
    White is a difficult colour, you done it very well.
    Keep painting.

    You are definitely on your way, your first figure is better than my first figure.I would Practice the highlighting , shading and blending.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    Hi Kyle

    You done very well with this figure, metas are good, may I suggest, maybe only using pure white as a highlight, and dulling down the brightness of your whites, making them more dirty, this will give you more contrast to your figures, A good book to have a look at would be Mike Blanks painting black and white, its full of techniques that can be carried over to all paint mediums.

    Good work Kyle.
    I have this kit in my gray army. I agree with the others on the depth of shading. You'll get it, I'm sure.
    I noticed that you have left off the guige from the shield. That's the sling that holds the shield. I know that's a real pain on this kit because there are no good pictures or explanations with it. I think they want you to buy their books to get that info.
    I haven't fixed it yet because I put it on the back burner in frustration. Hence, the gray army grows.
    Maybe someone here on the Planet can shed some light on this issue.
    It's nice to see a familiar kit in progress.
    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you, everyone (including my lovely sister-in-law, Lizzie!) for your very helpful, and appreciated comments. I have just returned from a two-day biz trip to Nashville, and can't wait to get my brushes out to "weather" the plume and shield, and tone down the metal - and add the guige!!!

    Thanks again everyone, for your encouragement.

    Just need to finish the groundwork, and I'll be done....

    Thanks for the tips and kind words,

    Kyle
