    Here is a little find I've been working on and am just about finished with. This was found in a box of figures brought into the Hussar to sell. I saw her and fell in love, it is just a great 80mm figure from the Phoenix range. I hope it is enjoyable to watch her transform before your eyes as much as it is to me.

    Terrific paintwork Mike! (y)

    Do I see some lessons learnt from the Knight Models box arts?
    The way you painted the highlights reminds me of them.

    Cheers,

    You've got the hang of this painting lark Mike.
    I'm surprised you haven't gone for one of you liquid effects coming from the steins.
    Very well done,

    Excellent painting Mike. I remember the whole series of "Phoenix Follies" they produced.

    Thank you guys for the comments. Now, Mr. Barton, it seems you know me well now and since she isn't done yet, that is exactly what I plan to do. I still have to finish her hair and re-paint the steins, but beer and foam will be sloshing from the tops of those nectar containers.

    Thank you again.

    Great job Mike! The flesh tones and transitions are fantastic (colour me jealous).
    I think she was working tables at the Hoffbrau Haus in Munich when I was there in '85...Thanks for the flashback :whistle:;)

    Cheers
