    Here is my latest work. It is the 90MM offering from Andrea Miniatures. The figure was cast in white metal and the base with the wall section was resin. Nice kit overall and a good oppourtunity to really dirty this guy up giving the environment he is in and his light colored winter camo. He could fit into many different campaigns such as BOB on the western front to Cherkassy, battles around Kharkov and even Stalingrad in the east. He is as usual painted in Vallejo acrylics with Citadel paints for the metallics.

    Very nice work Dan.
    I have to make a comment. The front of the figure has a very convincing dirt on him.
    The backside is very clean, specially the gear on the back. No paintchipping on the gasmask, the sack is also very clean as is the waterbottle. Maybe some dirty on that to give it a more battle look.

    Hi Marc. Upon further review I think you are right. It's not too late to make that slight change. Thanks for your input.

    Really nice Dan! Love the camo on the pants. How did you do the snow, it looks great as well.

    Hi Scott. The snow is a Woodland scenics product called "soft flake" p/n SN140. I mix it up with diluted Elmers glue or you can use matt gel medium as well. I mix it up into a thick paste and then form it with a brush and a spoon. Thanks!

    Hi John. I'm not sure if it will be as the client will be picking him up at the APG show. Hopefully he will have room to bring it to Chicago.
