    Hi Guys ,

    Got round to prepping up and base coating this gem from Ellie's ...it is ofcourse the sculpt by Offo ...easy cleanup just added a couple of rosettes on the epaulettes ...well just to be a little different !!

    Lots of white here all different base colours .......

    ........to be honest I am waiting for the box art so I can go and cry at the skilled painting of that !!!...using it as a bit of a reference as well ....so come on Ian we are all waiting !!!


    Just the one picture will update this once I have finished the other WIP on the bench!!!( working between the 2 )

    Any comments but no laughing as he looks possessed by the devil at the moment..LOL
