    Cheers guys
    Lots of decisions on this one , IE metal armour,leather armour,do I do the embossed parts in metal ,colour for the cloakred or something different
    I know this bust came in for a bit of stick regards accuracy so I am doing him Either as a Praetorian commander or as a pro consul dressed for a truimph
    thru Rome in his Sunday best.

    Thanks for looking and the comments.
    Neil. yes it is a fantastic sculpt well worth the dosh.

    Brian of busterama fame :D
    Martin. Re the dagger that is a point in question ,I haven't left it off just not got round to it yet. But you obviously have a reason against including it so I would like your opinion for the exclusion . IE is it wrong ,just doesn't look right, or just in a silly place .
    My thoughts were if he has been awarded a triumph then it could be purely ceremonial , options are still open .

    Ron!.. Right call on the leather armor and helmet!.. lovely tones, and blending!.. I love the subtle transitions... How the hell you have achieved that, is beyond me.... Grrrr!,.. it is very impressive! Very seldom do you see, this option! as it is usually the metal option! Well done you!

    Tell you what Ron, that is stunning! I couldn't really give a toss about the accuracy if it looks this good and you paint it the way you want and it turns out like this....good on ya!

    If you are talking about the leather on the armour you have just had a crash course from Kagamusha (Ron C)

    It is his technique , the only difference is the undercoat,I spayed on from a humbrol can of acrylic buff which also doubles for the base flesh too.
    Then I applied what Ron C calls a scrub coat of oils in this case Sepia and a little brown Madder to give a slight reddish tinge to the leather with a decent broad brush not to worn , then it is just a case of lift off ,lift off ,again and again till the base shines through on the high spots.
    this coat is so thin that it dries in a couple of days but best to give it a week then just repeat the paint will stay in the crevices and there you have it.
    I use the cheap pro art brushes for this, the ones with the pearl handles flats,filbert and wedges Nr four and fives series 33
    But you could just as easy get out you compact and use the makeup set :D

    Hope this helps Mark

    PS you could use Raw umber , Burnt Sienna ,Vandyke brown etc , these will give you subtle shade differences

    Ah-Ha!... Got it!.. the methods, I understand!. and have used..... On and brush off!. Soft brush, clean, repeat etc. Its the colour range! of the oils that I am picking up on!.. My existing range is limited,. Doh!. More expenditure. However they will last for a very long time!.... I hope!(y)

    Don't go Nuts :D on the oils if you have a basic earth brown and some other oils you can always mix a shade till you
    decide if you like this method.
    Here is a pic of a Blue Peter "one I made earlier ":whistle:
    Just raw umber over Humbrol Buff sprayed with an air brush .
    On the edges of the belt I lifted the paint off with a cotton bud ,gets more of that way (just a light touch" then back over with a clean brush to marry in.
