    Just finished this little guy up today after struggling with him for a little while (54's are smaller than I typically like to paint). He has a freakishly small right hand which is the only flaw of the sculpt. He is mounted on a turned base from "the Hussar". Please post any comments positive or negative.

    I did notice a seam on his left hand that I need to correct.

    Excellent painting Mike. The smaller 54mm figures are a challenge.

    Looks good Mike, I like the colors you chose. Ya, that right hand does kind of remind me of the guy on those Burger King commercials :)

    Hey Mike: I agree with Mr. Green. I really like the colours you selected for
    this figure, this presentation. Nice work on the leather, etc. Nice photos
    as well,

    Thanks Guy,Jason and Jay Hawker for taking a look.

    Jason; That is exactly what I thought. It also made me think of the Mike Myers skit about Carney's and their wee little hands that smell of cabbage.

    Thanks again fella's I appreciate it.

    The beautiful surcoat color!
    The fresh tone is also very beautiful.
    The contrast is also wonderful.
    I liked it very much.
    I congratulate completion.

    Nicely painted Mike. Is this supposed to be Liam Neeson's character from Kingdom of Heaven?

    lovely use of earthy colours Mike and overall great job for 54mm.

    I think the manufacturer should pull the figure back from production and correct that right hand for new moulds as its a great looking figure otherwise.

    Thanks gents for the comments. Tony I am pretty sure this is a rendention of Liam Neeson's role in kingdom of heaven. I have seen a picture of him from the movie that is this exact pose. It was hard not to use those colors on this figure as they just seemed to fit. I agree with you Steve the figure is so good but that right hand is just a sore spot on it. I would like to see it corrected as it would make it an outstanding figure rather than just a good figure.Michael I need to come down to Dallas one weekend this winter and paint with you guys, there is serious painting going on down there.

    Thanks again everybody I really appreciate it.

    Hi Meehan,
    I really agree with the other members of the forums that color choices are pretty good, like the color of people has the right darkness and light!!

    A really nice work Mike, well done.
    For my taste is a bit "dirty".
