    Progress

    Here are some progress shots as lve been going with this figure.
    Wanted to make the uniform look like he has been in the field for some time, hence the various shades of green and faded down tans. Some soldiers when in the field for some time literally had uniforms rot off thier bodies. Comments welcome.

    Its Finished

    Hi all, well here it is all finished and ready to be entered in Battalion tomorrow morning. Im happy with the end result and actually toned down some of the colors on the uniform, it looked over the top. As you can see l also added some more to the base, this finished it off nicely. Comments welcome.
    Cheers Andrew
